• # Fourth Grade Everyday Mathematics®

Numeration

Reading, writing, and comparing whole numbers through millions, decimals through thousandths, negative numbers to negative 20, and fractions; understanding relations between fractions, decimals, and percents; locating fractions and mixed numbers on a number line; generating equivalent fractions.

Operations and Computation

Using paper-and-pencil algorithms to add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit whole numbers and decimals; using mental arithmetic to compute exact answers and to estimate; rounding from millions to hundredths; modeling multiplication with arrays and area; doing operations with fractions.

Patterns, Functions, and Algebra

Using letters and other symbols for unknowns; simplifying expressions containing parentheses; creating, extending, and describing patterns, using formulas for finding the area of simple geometric figures; determining rules that relate numbers in pairs; finding missing numbers in tables; translating among verbal, numerical, and graphical representations, understanding and writing number models for number stories.

Geometry

Locating points on a coordinate grid; drawing and measuring angles; classifying angles as acute, obtuse, or right; classifying lines as parallel, intersecting, or perpendiculars; recognizing and using transformations, including reflections and rotations; understanding the relationship between reflections and line symmetry; building 3-dimensional shapes; describing, comparing, and analyzing 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional figures.

Measurement and Reference Frames

Using tools to measure length, area, volume, weight, temperature, and time; developing personal references for inches, centimeters, feet meters, and yards; estimating lengths and weights; finding areas and perimeters of rectangles, parallelograms, and triangles; finding volumes or rectangular
prisms by counting cubic units; calculating elapsed time; using correct units in all measurements; calculating distances using map scales.

Data and Chance

Creating, reading, and interpreting graphs; identifying landmarks in data sets, including range, median, mode, and mean; listing all possible outcomes in simple situations; using fractions to quantify probabilities; using experimental results to make predictions.
