Standard(s) Taught


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 SC.4.P.8.4

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

Investigate and describe that magnets can attract magnetic materials, and attract and repel other 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).

– Investigate and classify objects that are attracted to magnets (paper clips, iron filings, scissors) and those that are not (bottles, pennies, nickels, copper wire, erasers, foil).

– Investigate that all magnets, regardless of shape, have a north pole (N) and a south pole (S) although they may not be marked.

– Investigate the presence of a magnetic field with different-shaped magnets.

– Describe the effects of the magnetic field of different-shaped magnets using iron filings.

– Investigate how magnets attract and repel other magnets based on the presence of a magnetic field.
