The Primary Focus in Fourth Grade

In grade 4 students will build on their knowledge of basic facts and apply it to multi-digit multiplication and division problems. Fourth graders apply their understanding of place value to larger numbers. Students use a variety of strategies to solve problems using estimation and mental computation. In grade four, students will build on their understanding of fractions to add, subtract, multiply and find equivalent fractions. Fourth graders analyze and classify geometric figures based on properties such as parallel sides, perpendicular sides and angle measurements. Students will describe shapes and solids through estimated and actual measurements.
