**Hello fabulous 4th Grade Parents!**

**4.1 Math Curriculum**

**(Now in 2nd Semester of 4th grade math!)**

__4.1__: This week the students will wrap up

**Unit 6: Geometry**...

This week, students will be tested over the Geometry standards for this unit (posted below). In this unit, your child has learned all about lines, angles, geometric shapes and their attributes, and lines of symmetry. Students were given their study guides to complete last Friday and will work on those throughout the week in order to prepare for our assessment.

**The Unit 6 test will be this Friday, May 6th!**

__4.1 Standards for Unit 6:__*4.G.1*- Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

*4.G.2 -*Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.

*4.G.3 -*Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.

__4.1 Homework for the Week:__- Tuesday (5/3/16) – Complete study guide & study for Friday’s assessment!
- Thursday (5/5/16) – Study for Friday’s assessment!
**Friday (5/6/16) – Unit 6 Geometry Assessment!**

**4.2 Math Curriculum (Now in 5th grade math!)**

**: This week we are continuing with our current unit, Unit 2/3: Operations with Fractions!**

__4.2__We are wrapping up our work with fractions! Within the unit, we will work on reading, writing and expanding decimals, comparing decimals to the thousandths place, and adding/subtracting/multiplying/dividing decimals. Our standards this week will be 5NBT7 (dividing decimals).

**We will assess on this unit on**

__Friday, May 6th__!

__4.2 Standards for Units 2/3:__*5.NBT.3*Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.

a. Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) + 2 × (1/1000).

b. Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

*5.NBT.4*Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place

*5.NBT.7*Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.

**5.1 Math Curriculum**

5.1: This week we are starting our next unit, Unit 7: Geometry and the Coordinate Plane!

Unit 7 is all about input/output tables, and then using these function tables to create ordered pairs (and then graph them!) We will start off the unit by focusing on input and output tables, and this will be a review since we practice them weekly in Calendar Math. Then, we will focus on plotting these points on coordinate planes as well as making real life connections to coordinate planes and map! Our standards this week will be 5G1 and 5G2.

**We will assess on this unit on**

__Friday, May 6th__!

__5.1 Standards for Unit 7:__*5.OA.3-*Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 0, and given the rule “Add 6” and the starting number 0, generate terms in the resulting sequences, and observe that the terms in one sequence are twice the corresponding terms in the other sequence. Explain informally why this is so.

*5.G.1-*Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).

*5.G.2-*Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
