**Hello fabulous 4th Grade Parents!**

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

__4.1__: This week the students will be introduced to

**Unit 6: Geometry**...

This week, your child will be introduced to their next unit: Geometry! This week's standard is 4.G.1. In this unit, your child will learn all about lines, angles, geometric shapes and their attributes, and lines of symmetry. We have a variety of choice board activities and hands-on stations/activities that will really help bring geometry to life!

**There will be a quiz over**

*4.G.1*this Friday, March 18th!

__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 (3/15/16) - IXL P13, P30, P31
- Thursday (3/17/16) - 1 Redbird Lesson + Weebly Practice (20-25 minutes)
**4.G.1 Quiz on Friday (3/18/16)**

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

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

__: This week we are starting our next unit, Unit 2/3: Operations with Fractions!__

**4.2**This week the kiddos will start their second (and third) unit(s) of 5th grade math! Units 2 and 3 have been combined into one unit since Unit 2 (decimals) is almost identical to Unit 5 in 4th grade math that we did at the beginning of the year. The only true difference was in 4th grade unit we go to the hundredths place, and in 5th grade unit we go to the thousands place (which we went ahead and did anyways since we knew we would have to do it again!). So, for Unit 2 we will review all that we learned about decimals in the beginning of the year, and then dive into Unit 3 which is multiplying and dividing decimals. Students always love the decimal units, so this will be such a fun way to wrap up our math units! 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 standard this week will be 5NBT3a, reading, writing, and expanding decimals.

**We will quiz on this week's standard on**

__Friday, March 18th__!

__4.2 Standards for Unit 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.

**5.1 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. Our standard this week will be 5OA3.

**We will quiz on this week's standard on**

__Friday, March 18th__!

__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.
