Standard(s) Taught

Math:        MA.4.NSO.2.4    MA.4.NSO.2.5     MA.4.AR.1.1  

  • Divide a whole number up to four digits by a onedigit whole number with procedural
    reliability. Represent remainders as fractional parts of the divisor. 
  • Explore the multiplication and division of multidigit whole numbers using estimation,
    rounding and place value.
  • Solve realworld problems involving multiplication and division of whole numbers
    including problems in which remainders must be interpreted within the context.

Science:    SC.4.P.8.1

  • Measure and compare objects and materials based on their physical properties including: mass, shape, volume, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, and attraction to magnets.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

  • Understand how to divide by one-digit numbers.
  • Understand word problems that involve division.
  • Represent a remainder as a fractional part of the divisor.
  • Compare objects based on observable and measurable physical properties (shape, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, attraction to magnets, mass, volume).
  • Investigate and explain that all matter has the following measurable properties: volume (takes up space) and mass (weight).
  • Record and compare the mass and volume of solid and liquid matter using metric units.
  • Record and compare the volume of regular- and irregular-shaped solids using the water displacement method.
  • Display data appropriately in charts, tables, and graphs.
  • Compare measurement data with other lab groups checking for accuracy.
  • Explain any differences that may have occurred across groups.
