MATH: 4.OA.1.1 4.OA.1.2 4.OA.1.3 4.OA.1.a 4.OA.1.b -Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by 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 remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. 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. -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 five, so the unknown number must be four greater than 76. SCIENCE: |

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria |

The students will: •represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number. •interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems. E.g.The context of a word problem must be considered when interpreting remainders. Here are some ways remainders can be addressed: 1) remainder as an answer-“How many are leftover?” 2) discard remainder leaving only the whole number answer -“How many full boxes?” 3)increase the whole number answer by one -“How many buses are needed for all students? •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 the two sides of an equation to determine the unknown value without solving. E.g. Use comparative relational thinking to determine the value of n. • investigate and describe properties of water in all three states. • identify common uses of water in all three states. • explain the importance of water to life on Earth. |
