Q2W4 (11/8 – 11/12)

Teacher Kathleen Manning Math and Science 4 4 Division/ Properties of Matter
Standard(s) Taught

MATH: MAFS.4.NBT.2.6

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.P.8.1
Measure and compare objects and materials based on their physical properties including: mass, shape, volume, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, attraction to magnets.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

– Use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or area models to solve and explain division problems
that involve the division of a multi-digit dividend (with up to four digits) by a one-digit divisor.

– Apply an understanding of rectangular arrays and area models to connect to the partial quotients strategy.

– 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.
