Instruction in our classroom meets or exceeds South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Standards. Fourth-grade students begin to develop more advanced problem solving skills. Using this ability, the South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Standards have students use the four operations to solve problems with an emphasis on multiplying two-digits by two-digits and division of four-digits by one digit. Fourth graders expand their work with fractions and are introduced to decimals through hundredths. They learn more about Geometry, measurement, and data. Remember, your child must show the steps, one at a time, needed to solve a math problem. This activity requires students to organize their work. It provides a “trail” for checking answers; shows exactly what was done; and allows for intervention exactly at the point where necessary. By showing their work, students are more accurate and avoid habits that could hinder their math progress.

**Number Sense and Base 10:**Students develop fluency with addition and subtraction. First, students deepen their understanding of place value with an emphasis on math periods within a number and the relationship to other periods in order to read and write large numbers. Next, students use this understanding of the place value system when rounding numbers as a method for estimating, initially using number lines, with the ultimate goal of moving away from the visual model. Students apply their knowledge of place value, as well as estimating, to add and subtract fluently and flexibly with any size number. Students employ a variety of strategies to efficiently multiply and divide multi-digit numbers.**Number Sense and Operations - Fractions:**Students strengthen their fraction sense by using a variety of models and strategies, such as the multiplicative identity element in fraction form, to generate and compare equivalent fractions. Students use a variety of models when adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators and when multiplying a whole number and a fraction to solve real-world problems. Students write decimals as fractions and use concrete and visual models to compare and order decimal numbers.**Algebraic Thinking and Operations:**To extend algebraic reasoning, students employ flexible thinking with multiplication and division to solve a variety of real-world problems.**Geometry:**Students learn specific geometric attributes, such as parallel and perpendicular lines, and use those attributes to classify 2- and 3-D shapes. The concept of line symmetry is introduced.**Measurement and Data Analysis:**Students convert measurements within a single system and solve real-world problems involving a variety of measurement concepts. Students create and measure angles using a protractor. They also solve real-world problems involving unknown angle measures.
