Subject AreaMath/Science/S. Studies
Grade Level4th
Week #Week #4 (September 5th-8th)
Unit of InstructionOperations of Algebraic Thinking: Patterns & Sequences/Multiplication/Scientific Method/Getting to Know Florida
Standard(s) Taught


Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.


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.


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.




Keep records that describe observations made, carefully distinguishing actual observations from ideas and inferences about the observations.



Compare the observations made by different groups using multiple tools and seek reasons to explain the differences across groups.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


  1. Determine whether a whole number is a multiple of a given one-digit number.
  2. Generate a number pattern that follows a given rule.
  3. Identify features in patterns.
  4. Solve multi-step word problems that involve multiplication and/or division using strategies for this grade level (e.g, rectangular arrays, area models, properties of operations, etc).
  5. Represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.
  6. Interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.
  7. Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.

8.      Use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or array models to solve and explain multi-digit multiplication problems that extend to 4-digit by 1-digit or up to 2-digit by 2-digit.

9.       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.



Record observations, make inferences, communicate findings, critique and engage in discussions, identify tools & demonstrate.
