This week, students will begin exploring multi-digit division. They will use manipulatives (base-ten blocks, cubes, counters, etc.) to model division as they move towards learning the partial products method. We will also be doing a fun activity on Halloween addressing standard 4.MD.8. Students will design and create their own area model monster. Homework for the week is below.
Tuesday - Workbook pages 345-346
Thursday - Workbook pages 377-378
4.1 Standards for the Week:
4.NBT.6 Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using 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, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
4.MD.2 Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
4.MD.8 Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
4.2-Unit 7: Measurement and Data
This week, students will be working on learning the difference between customary and metric forms of linear measurement (i.e. in, ft, yd, km, m, cm, mm, etc.).
Tuesday: iReady (20 minutes)
Thursday: Workbook pages 701-702
4.2 Standards for the Week:
4.MD.1: Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g, lb, oz; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table.
5.1-Unit 2: Adding and Subtracting Decimals
This week, students will be exploring different methods of multiplying decimals. Thus far, students have used grid paper and base ten blocks to show decimal multiplication. Next, they will be using number strings, and then using place value understanding to multiply decimals. Next week, we move on to division!
We will have a quiz on Next Friday (11/9) on standard 5.NBT.7.
5.1 Standards for the Week:
5.NBT.7: Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to the 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.
