Mrs. Piasecki/MathWelcome to 4th Grade Math Week of March 12, 2018 Zearn: Students need to have completed up to Lesson 6, by Friday. School time on Tuesday. Students are becoming little mathematicians!!! Zearn has been a very success addition to the math curriculum in 4th grade. Please remind you child to log on nightly....... Topic A: Decompositions and Fraction Equivalence Topic B: Use area model and use multiplication and division to show equivalence of fractions. Topic C: Using Benchmarks on a number line to compare fractioins Topic D: Adding and Subtracting Fractions Topic E: Extending Fraction Equivalence to Fractions Greater than 1. Topic C: If a student is absent or has trouble with a lesson, click on the link below: Mission 5: http://www.oakdale.k12.ca.us/cms/page_view?d=x&piid=&vpid=1424347210205 Newsletter for Topic A: Decompositions and Fraction Equivalence Every week I will make an attempt to give students math activities that they may use in class or at home to build math fluency of concepts learned this year. 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.
