Curriculum Map: Math Fourth Grade


In Grade 4, instructional time should focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding and fluency with multi-digit multiplication including familiarity with patterns, factors and multiples, and developing understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends; (2) developing an understanding of fraction/decimal equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers; (3) understanding that geometric figures can be analyzed and classified on their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures, and symmetry; and (4) solving problems involving length, weight, liquid, mass, volume, time, area, and perimeter.
