This week students will begin the 4th grade unit, Finishing up Multiplication with problem solving then on to Division Lesson 16: Understand and solve 2digit dividend division problems with a remainder in the ones place.

Here is A Sample of What Your Child Will Be Working on in 4th Grade *Using wholenumber arithmetic to solve word problems, including problems with remainders and problems with measurements. *Adding and subtracting whole numbers quickly and accurately (numbers up to 1 million) *Multiplying and dividing multidigit numbers in simple cases (e.g., multiplying 1,638 x 7 or 24 x 17, and dividing 6,966 by 6) *Understanding and applying equivalent fractions (e.g., recognizing that 1/4 is less than 3/8 because 2/8 is less than 3/8) *Adding, subtracting, and multiplying fractions in simple cases (such as 2 3/4 1 1/4 or 3 x 5/8), and solving related word problems. *Understanding simple decimals in terms of fractions (e.g., rewriting 0.62 as 62/100) *Measuring angles and finding unknown angles in a diagram. One of the main areas studied in 4th grade is arithmetic and applying it to solve problems. This is an important like skill, and your child should make significant strides in this area during the year. Your child will also build knowledge and skills with fractions to prepare for mastering this topic in 5th and 6th grades.
