Math: 4.OA.1.2, 4.OA.1.3, 4.NBT.2.4, 4.NBT.2.5, 4.NBT.2.6

 

1.     Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.

 

2.     Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, 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.

 

3.     Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

 

4.     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.

 

5.     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

 

Science: SC.4.L.17.4

1.     Recognize ways plants and animals, including humans, can impact the environment.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:

 

  1. Distinguish multiplicative comparison (e.g., Tonya has 3 times as many cousins as Matthew) from additive comparison (e.g., Tonya has 3 more cousins than Matthew).
  2. Solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison (situations may include 2-digit by 1-digit expressions or a multiple of 10 by a 1-digit expression).
  3. Solve multi-step word problems (i.e., up to 3 steps) that involve the four operations using strategies for this grade level (e.g, rectangular arrays, area models, properties of operations, etc).
  4. Represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.
  5. Interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.
  6. Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.

NOTE: The expectations for multi-step word problems include addition and subtraction within 1,000, multiplication of 2‐digit by 1‐digit or a multiple of 10 by a 1‐digit, and division of 2‐digit by 1‐digit.

  1. Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
  2. Solve multi-digit multiplication problems that extend to 4-digit by 1-digit or up to 2-digit by 2-digit using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations, and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

NOTE: Use of the standard algorithm for multiplication is a Grade 5 standard. Although these strategies are precursors to the standard algorithm, students should not be moved too quickly to the algorithm, as the standard algorithm is not the only end goal. Perhaps more importantly, students must become flexible in their use of place value and properties of operations when multiplying in Grade 4 in order to be successful later in Algebra when using the Distributive Property.

  1. Solve division of a multi-digit number (with up to four digits) by a one-digit number using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division, and explain the calculation using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

NOTE: Use of the standard algorithm for division is a Grade 6 standard.

Science:

  1. Describe the positive (helpful) and negative (harmful) impact plants may have on the environment.

 

  • positive – decor, medicine, oxygen, erosion control, food source
  • negative – invasive species, poisonous plants, reduction in diversity

 

  1. Describe the positive (helpful) and negative (harmful) impact animals may have on the environment.

 

  • positive – migration, predator-prey, pets, food source
  • negative – overpopulation, poisonous/dangerous animals, destruction)

 

  1. Describe ways that humans help and harm the environment.
