Pillars of Math: Text: McGraw Hill
In the fourth grade, instructional time will focus on three critical areas: (1) developing understanding and fluency with multi-digit multiplication, and developing understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends; (2) developing an understanding of fraction 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 based on their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures, and symmetry.
In fourth grade, students make the transition from learning basic facts, to using the facts to master more advanced operations. The "Pillars of Math" are woven throughout the curriculum. Pretesting each unit, enables the students to work at a level that matches their skills. Flexible grouping is in place for remediation or enrichment.
