MATH:  4.OA.1.1     4.OA.1.2    4.OA.1.3    4.OA.1.a   4.OA.1.b   4.OA.2.4

Use operations with whole numbers to solve problems:

  • Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
  • Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison (using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem), distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
  • Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which the remainder must be interpreted. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies, including rounding.
  • 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).  **new standard in Florida
  • 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 5, so the unknown number must be 4 greater than 76). **new standard in Florida

SCIENCE:  SC.4.E.6.6   SC.4.P.8.1

  • Identify resources available in Florida: water, phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon, wind, and solar energy.
  • Measure and compare objects and materials based on their physical properties including: mass, shape, volume, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, and attraction to magnets.

SOCIAL STUDIES:  SS.4.A.2.1    SS.4.A.1.1   SS.4.A.1.2    SS.4.G.1.2    SS.4.A.3.4

  • Compare Native American tribes in Florida
  • Analyze primary and secondary resources to identify significant individuals and events  throughout Florida history.
  • Synthesize information related to Florida history through print and electronic media.
  • Locate and label cultural features on a Florida map.
  • Explain the purposes of and daily life on missions.



Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

  • Interpret a basic multiplication equation as a comparison.
  • Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparison as multiplication equations.
  • Distinguish multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
  • Solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison.
  • Solve multi-step word problems that involve multiplication and/or division using 4th grade strategies. (rectangular arrays, area models, partial products/quotients, etc.)
  • Represent multi-step word problems using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for an unknown number.
  • Interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.
  • Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies, including rounding.
  • Determine if a given equation is true or false by comparing, composing, and/or decomposing the numbers without solving.
  • Compare two sides of an equation to determine the unknown value without solving.
  • Identify natural resources available in Florida (water, phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon, wind and solar).
  • Distinguish Florida’s natural resources as renewable (water, wind, solar, trees)  or nonrenewable (phosphate, oil, limestone, silicon).
  • Compare objects based on observable and measurable physical properties.
  • Investigate and explain that all matter has the following measurable properties: volume (takes up space) and mass (weight).
  • Know the differences between FL Native American tribes.
