TeacherKathleen Manning
Subject AreaMath and Science
Grade Level4
Week #5
Unit of InstructionMultiplication of Fractions/Line Plots/Human Uses of Energy
Standard(s) Taught

MATH: 4.NF.2.4 MAFS.4.MD.2.4

-Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.

-Represent and interpret data on line plots.

SCIENCE: SC.4.P.10.4 SC.4.E.6.3

-Describe how moving water and air are sources of energy and can be used to move things.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

– Decompose a fraction into unit fractions and record the conclusion with a multiplication equation.
– Recognize that a fraction a/b is a multiple of 1/b.
– Recognize that a multiple of a/b is also a multiple of 1/b. (e.g. 3 groups of 2/5 has the same value as 6 groups
of 1/5 and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number.)
– Create a line plot to display measurement data including fraction units of halves, quarters, and eighths.
– Use the measurement data on a line plot to solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions
with like denominators.
– 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.
