Below you will find information for all math groups for this coming week. Please scroll down to your child's math level (they are in order and color coded - 4.1 is green, 4.2 is purple, and 5.1 is grey).

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

**This Week:****Students are wrapping up their 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 reviewing all of the standards to prepare for our test. 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 Unit 1 Test this Friday, September 23rd. To review and practice for the test students may review the study guide, practice Addition, Subtraction, and Place Value on IXL, and review previous Quiz questions.**

__4.1 Standards for Unit 1:__*Focus on all standards this week for review

*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**

**:**

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

__This week, students are wrapping up the standards in Unit 1: Order of Operations. We have learned all about the Order of Operations, written and numerical expressions (and how to write them), the powers of 10 and multiplying and dividing by them, as well as the standard algorithms for 3 digit x 2 digit multiplication and long division (we also learned lots of strategies to check our work!) 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.__

**This Week:****We will have our Unit 1 Test this Friday, September 23rd.**To review and practice for the test students may review the study guide, practice skills on IXL, review notes in math journals, review standards based quizzes, and practice via any other strategies listed on the

*How Can I Study?*tab on the Weebly ( http://fourthgradenpes.weebly.com/how-can-i-study.html ).

*The kids have worked so hard, and I am so proud! They will do awesome on their first 5th grade test! :)*

__5.1 Standards for Unit 1:__*Focus on all standards this week for review

*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)
