This is the third unit in a course series that will deliver a full math curriculum for the entire school year. Placement in this class prioritizes readiness over age. Learners who are ready for this class will have mastered 2nd grade math standards and are proficient in most 3rd grade standards. Lessons will have a warm-up/review, demonstration, guided practice, partner or group practice, and a Kahoot review. Learners will complete their independent practice outside of live class time.

Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.A.1 Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.A.2 Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Build fractions from unit fractions. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.B.3 Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.B.3.A Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.B.3.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. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.B.3.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. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.B.3.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. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.B.4 Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.B.4.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). CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.B.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.) CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.B.4.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? Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.C.5 Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100.2 For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.C.6 Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.C.7 Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.
I am dually certified in childhood education and special education for grades 1-6 and have a degree in Mathematics. My classroom experience has been teaching students with a variety of abilities and learning styles in grades 3 and 4.
Zearn and Xtra Math will be used for daily homework.
- Math Notebook - Mini-whiteboard and dry-erase markers - Printable manipulatives will be provided, but you can also buy your own fraction strips (not required) - learners will also be shown how to make their own fraction strips.
Learners will demonstrate understanding through their choice of a creative performance tasks or quizzes. Informal assessment will take place throughout each lesson. End of unit progress reports will be completed for each student.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This course also utilizes the sites Kahoot, Xtra Math, and Zearn. Each learner will be assigned a username and password for Xtra Math and Zearn. I will help them access all of these materials but may need additional parental support to get them on the first time.
