**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.*

**4.2 Math Curriculum**

**:**

__This Week__- Students will be introduced to the fifth grade math standard 5.OA.1 which covers the Order of Operations. Yes, I know, I skipped way ahead, but I am currently finishing up a math endorsement and need to teach a 5-day mini-unit covering algebra standards. Instead of going backwards to the fourth grade algebra standards that your children have already studied, I decided that it would be okay to introduce this unit now. In turn, the students should benefit from this unit in the future when we actually reach the fifth grade standards next semester. With that said, your children will technically be
for*5.1 (Unit 1)**THIS WEEK ONLY.* *In addition, students will be given a pre- and post-assessment this week. They will also complete an activity on the "Nearpod" app, so if you haven't had a chance to download the app on your child's device, please do so before Tuesday. Your child will still be able to access the program without the app, but using the app makes the program easier to access.*

__5.1 Standards for Unit 1:__*All standards in

**BOLD**will be a focus.

- 5OA.1: Use parenthesis, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate with these symbols.

**This Week:****We will have a quiz on both standards (5NBT5 and 5NBT6) on Friday, September 16th.**The unit assessment will be on Friday, Sept. 23rd. Study guides will go home this Friday (9/16).

__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)

**4.2 Math Curriculum**

**: Students will be reviewing the math standards from our current unit: Fraction Operations (Unit 4). We will spend each day in whole group and in small groups reviewing skills and concepts that students have not yet shown mastery.**

__This Week__

__4.2 Standards for Unit 4:__*All standards this week will be a focus.

__MGSE4.NF.3 Understand a fraction 𝑎 𝑏 with a numerator >1 as a sum of unit fractions 1 𝑏 .__

a. Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.

b. Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8 ; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.

c. Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.

d. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.

__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.)

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?
