Determine whether an equation is true or false by using comparative relational thinking. For example, without adding 60 and 24, determine whether the equation 60 + 24 = 57 + 27 is true or false.

Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.

Determine the unknown whole number in an equation relating four whole numbers using comparative relational thinking. For example, solve 76 + 9 = n + 5 for n by arguing that nine is four more than five, so the unknown number must be four greater than 76.

Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

Investigate factors and multiples.

  1. Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1-100.
  2. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its

             factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range

             of 1-100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number.

  1. Determine whether a given whole number in the range of 1-100

             is prime or composite.

Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.

SC.4.E.5.2, SC.4.E.5.4, SC.4.E.5.5

Relate that the rotation of Earth (day and night) and apparent movements of the sun, moon, and stars are connected.

Describe the changes in the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month.

Investigate and report the effects of space research and exploration on the economy and culture of Florida.

 SS.4.C.2.2

Identify ways citizens work together to influence government and help solve community and state problems.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

MATH

  1. Generate a number pattern that follows a given rule.
  2. Identify features in patterns.
  3. Identify the equal sign as expressing equivalence or same value between numbers.
  4. Determine if a given equation is true or false i.e., by comparing, composing, and/or decomposing numbers without solving.
  5. Use a variety of strategies to justify why an equation is true or false without solving.
  6. Interpret an unknown quantity without solving.
  7. Use manipulatives or drawings of a model to solve multi-digit multiplication problems that extend to 2-digit by 2-digit or up to 4-digit by 1-digit.
  8. Solve multi-digit multiplication problems that extend to 2-digit by 2-digit or up to 4-digit by 1-digit using a variety of strategies.  During Number Talks
  9. Apply the perimeter formula (P = 2l + 2w) in real world and mathematical situations.
  10. Apply the area formula (A = lw) in real world and mathematical situations.
  11. Solve for missing dimensions of rectangles when provided with the perimeter and/or area.
  12. Solve problems involving area of a composite figure composed of rectangles.
  13. Explain how two or more numbers relate to each other within an equation.
  14. Create a balanced equation by comparing two sides of an equation.
  15. Determine the unknown value to create a balanced equation.
  16. Solve multi-step word problems (i.e., up to 3 steps) that involve multiplication and/or division using various strategies.
  17. Represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.
  18. Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.
  19. Solve division of a multi-digit number by a one-digit number using a variety of strategies.

SCIENCE

  1. Recognize that the moon does not produce its own light; it reflects light from the sun.
  2. Recognize that the moon revolves around (orbits) Earth in about 28 days as Earth revolves around (orbits) the sun.
  3. Describe the changes (patterns) that occur to the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month that have been recorded in a science notebook.
  4. Predict the changes in the observable shape of the moon starting at any point in the cycle.
  5. Sequence moon patterns.
  6. Compare observable shapes of the moon.
  7. Explain that the moon’s physical shape does not actually change.
  8. Explain that Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the moon to appear as though it is moves across the sky in the day or night sky.
  9. Read and discuss how the effects of space research and exploration has created advances in science that have impacted the economy and culture of Florida (e.g., medical technology, transportation, agriculture, and industrial productivity).
  10. Research products that were generated specifically for space but have now found purpose for public use (e.g., freeze-dried food, memory foam, Mylar blanket).

SOCIAL STUDIES

  1. Summarize ways citizens can influence government and public policy.
  2. Identify community and state problems.
  3. Describe how citizens, including children, can help solve community and state problems. Examples may include, but are not limited to, voting, petitioning, conservation, and recycling.
