# Q3W2 (1/17-1/20) Teacher Kathleen Manning Math/Science 4 2 Add/Subtract Fractions- Energy of Motion
Standard(s) Taught

MATH:     MA.4.FR.2.2      MA.4.AR.1.2     MA. 4.FR.2.1

• Add and subtract fractions with like denominators, including mixed numbers and fractions greater than one, with procedural reliability.
• Solve real-world problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, including mixed numbers and fractions greater than one.
• Decompose a fraction, including mixed numbers and fractions greater than one, into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in multiple ways. Demonstrate each decomposition with objects, drawings and equations.

SCIENCE:   SC.4. P.10.2

• Investigate and describe that energy has the ability to cause motion or create change.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

• Write a fraction as a sum of unit fractions.
• Represent mixed numbers as a fraction.
• Add and subtract fractions with like denominators.
• Solve problems using fractions and mixed numbers.
• Investigate and describe how energy can cause motion (e.g., moving water can turn a water wheel to make hydropower, wind can move sand across the beach or sail a model boat, solar energy can power a model car).
• Investigate and describe how energy can create change in matter (e.g., heat energy can melt ice, moving water can make rocks smooth, light can keep food warm).
• Explain the relationship between energy and motion.
