**4.1 Math Curriculum-**Unit 1: Whole Numbers, Place Value, and Rounding

**This Week:****Students will be continuing to work on Unit 1 in math. Students have been practicing place value, rounding, comparing numbers, and addition and subtraction with the standard algorithm. This week, we are practicing these concepts through**

**multi-step word problems**. The students will practice these standards through their interactive math journals, learning videos, fluency practice, small group tailored instruction, and application of skills through math games.

**We will have our weekly standards quiz on 4OA3 on Friday, September 9th.**

__4.1 Standards for Unit 1:__*Focus standards for the week are bolded

*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.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.*

**4.2 Math Curriculum**

**: Students will continue to dive deep into the multiplying fractions standard, but more fraction work will be done through word problems. Students will work in jigsaw groups to solve different word problems and report back to their group about how they arrived at a solution. A standards based quiz will be given on Friday.**

__This Week__

__4.2 Standards for Unit 1:__*Focus standards for the week are bolded

a. Understand a fraction a/b as a multiple of 1/b. For example, use a visual fraction model to represent 5/4 as the product 5 × (1/4), recording the conclusion by the equation 5/4 = 5 × (1/4).

b. Understand a multiple of a/b as a multiple of 1/b, and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number. For example, use a visual fraction model to express 3 × (2/5) as 6 × (1/5), recognizing this product as 6/5. (In general, n × (a/b) = (n × a)/b.)

c. Solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a whole number, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, if each person at a party will eat 3/8 of a pound of roast beef, and there will be 5 people at the party, how many pounds of roast beef will be needed? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?

*4.NF.4 -*MGSE4.NF.4 Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number e.g., by using a visual such as a number line or area model.a. Understand a fraction a/b as a multiple of 1/b. For example, use a visual fraction model to represent 5/4 as the product 5 × (1/4), recording the conclusion by the equation 5/4 = 5 × (1/4).

b. Understand a multiple of a/b as a multiple of 1/b, and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number. For example, use a visual fraction model to express 3 × (2/5) as 6 × (1/5), recognizing this product as 6/5. (In general, n × (a/b) = (n × a)/b.)

**Weekly Standards Quiz**

**5.1 Math Curriculum -**Unit 1: Order of Operations and Whole Numbers

__This week, students are continuing to dive into Unit 1: Order of Operations. This week we will be learning all about the Powers of 10, and how to multiply and divide whole numbers and decimals by the Powers of 10.__

**This Week:****We will have a quiz on both standards (5NBT1 and 5NBT2) on Friday, September 9th.**

__5.1 Standards for Unit 1:__*Focus standards for the week are

**bolded**

*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 (9/6/16) - Powers of 10 Worksheet (5NBT1)
