Hello Fabulous Fourth Grade Parents,

Below you will find information for all math groups for this coming week. Please scroll down to your child's math level (they are in order and color coded - 4.1 is green, 4.2 is purple, and 5.1 is grey).

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Geometric Measurement - understand concepts of angle and measure angles.

MGSE4.MD.5. Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement: a. An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a “one-degree angle,” and can be used to measure angles. b. An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees.

MGSE4.MD.6. Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.

MGSE4.MD.7 Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into nonoverlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol or letter for the unknown angle measure.

**4.1 Math Curriculum-**Unit 1 Review**This Week:**- Students will be reviewing foundational concepts taught in Unit 1 this week such as place value, number forms, comparing numbers, rounding numbers and adding and subtracting multi digit whole numbers.
- Students will practice these skills through whole group mini lessons, small group instruction, choice board activities/projects, and
**extension**activities/lessons.

__4.1 Standards for Unit 1:__**All standards will be a focus this week**4.NBT.1-**Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place value represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.**4.NBT.2- Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.**4.NBT.3- Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.*

4.NBT.4- Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

4.OA.3-4.NBT.4- Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

4.OA.3-

*Solve multi step word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding***.******__4.1 Homework for the Week:__- Tuesday (12/13/16) - IXL Practice for 20 minutes. Students should practice a skill they know they need to work on/improve in.
- Thursday (12/15/16) – Redbird (20 Minutes)

**__________________________________________________________________________****4.2 Math Curriculum:**Unit 7 - Angle Measurement**:**__This Week__- In this sub-unit of Measurement, the focus will be on angle measurement. We will focus on the circle as being the basis for measuring angles, how to use a protractor, and finding missing angle measurements.
- Students will review the fact that angles are geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, but will also pay careful attention to the fractional parts of a circle and how those parts relate to the size and measurement of particular angles.
- Students will continue to use the protractor to determine angle measurement, but this will not be the focus of our learning this week.

**Unit 1: Review**

5.1 Math Curriculum -5.1 Math Curriculum -

**This Week:**- Students will be reviewing foundational concepts taught in Unit 1 this week such as the order of operations, written/numerical expressions, the powers of 10 (as well as multiplying and dividing by them), multiplication and division
- Students will practice these skills through whole group mini lessons, small group instruction, choice board activities/projects, and
**extension**activities/lessons.

__5.1 Standards for Unit 1:__**All standards will be a focus this week*

*5.OA.1-*Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.*5.OA.2-*Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them.*5.NBT.1-*Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.*5.NBT.2-*Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.*5.NBT.5-*Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm (or other strategies demonstrating understanding of multiplication) up to a 3 digit by 2 digit factor.*5.NBT.6-*Fluently divide up to 4-digit dividends and 2-digit divisors by using at least one of the following methods: strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations or concrete models. (e.g., rectangular arrays, area models)__5.1 Homework for the Week:__- Tuesday (12/13/16) - IXL Practice for 20 minutes.
