Immediately following the domain and enclosed in brackets is an abbreviation denoting the domain. Identified below each domain are the clusters that serve to group related content standards. All Grade 4 content standards, grouped by domain and cluster, are located on the pages that follow. The Standards for Mathematical Practice are listed below in the column to the right. These mathematical practice standards should be incorporated into classroom instruction of the content standards. Content Standard Domains and Clusters Standards for Mathematical Practice Operations and Algebraic Thinking [OA] Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems. Gain familiarity with factors and multiples. Generate and analyze patterns. Number and Operations in Base Ten [NBT] Generalize place value understanding for multi- digit whole numbers. Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic. Number and Operations – Fractions [NF] Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering. Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers. Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions. Measurement and Data [MD] Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller one. Represent and interpret data. Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles. Geometry [G] Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles. 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4. Model with mathematics. 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision. 7. Look for and make use of structure. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

2016 Revised Alabama Course of Study: Mathematics 33 GRADE 4 In Grade 4, instructional time should focus on three critical areas. These areas are (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; and (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. Important information regarding these three critical areas of instruction follows: (1) Students generalize their understanding of place value to 1,000,000, understanding the relative sizes of numbers in each place. They apply their understanding of models for multiplication such as equal-sized groups, arrays, or area models; place value; and properties of operations, in

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
