Q3W6 (2/7 – 2/11)

TeacherKathleen Manning
Subject AreaMath/Science
Grade Level4
Week #6
Unit of InstructionMultiply Fractions/Energy: Heat Flow
Standard(s) Taught


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

SCIENCE: SC.4.P.11.1

– Recognize that heat flows from a hot object to a cold object and that heat flow may cause materials to change temperature.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

– Decompose a fraction into unit fractions (fractions with numerators of 1) 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 (eg. 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.
– Solve word problems that involve multiplying a fraction by a whole number using visual models and equations.

– Investigate and diagram the direction of heat flow (hot to cold)
– Record observations of heat transfer (in the form of temperature changes) within tables, charts, and graphs.
– Analyze and form conclusions based on their recorded observations and data.
