Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Grade(s) 4 resources related to the following standard:
Number and Operations in Base Ten
Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.
5. Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

This 75-page pdf document demonstrates the connections between the CCSS content standards and the mathematical practice standards. It is a compilation of research, standards from several states, instructional strategies, common misconceptions, and examples for each standard at the grade 4 level. It is intended to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. Additional flip books are cataloged separately for grades K-3 and 5.

This web page provides links to resources aligned to the CCSS that guide and support fourth grade mathematics teaching and learning. Tasks developed by the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS) for the Noyce Foundation, Problems of the Month, (POM home page is cataloged separately) and videos of public lessons and number talks developed by the Noyce Foundation are also included. The performance tasks were originally designed to measure students' ability to solve non-routine problems and then to explain and justify their solutions. The task scoring rubric, student responses, and discussion of student understanding and misconceptions are provided to improve instruction. Resources are listed for specific grade 4 standards and are also organized by progression for an alternate search route.

This page provides examples of 4th Grade Number (Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations in Base Ten, and Number Operations-Fractions) activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. A CCSS standard is stated and the possible activities are listed below and linked. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group or whole class settings and are designed to elicit a range of responses and provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. Instructions for each task are typed in large print and written in child-friendly language to enable students to work on activities independently after a brief introduction to the task. All files for the 4th Grade Number Activities listed are in PDF format.

This web site contains information and interactive applets related to our Hindu-Arabic number system. Users learn the history and structure of the system as well as how to count and write numbers. Users can learn and practice various algorithms for whole number computation and explore fractions, decimals and percents in our number system. The site explains various sets of numbers and how they relate to operations.

This interactive Java game, similar to Connect Four, helps students develop game strategy and fluency with number facts. Two players each try to connect four game pieces in a row (vertically, horizontally or diagonally) before the opponent does by correctly answering problems. For each game players can choose whole numbers and/or integers as well as the operation(s) – addition, subtraction, multiplication, division. They can also select the difficulty level and the time limit for each problem.

This is a sample PARCC assessment task based on CCSS grade 4 operations and algebraic thinking standards as well as the number operations in base ten standards. In this interactive single task students must solve a multi-step problem by finding combinations of vehicles each of which hold a different number of passengers to transport all the students from three classes on their field trip. Included are the alignments to the CCSS, a scoring rubric and background on the task itself.

In this 4-minute video, educators can watch a teacher deliver a fourth grade lesson on using number sense, arrays, and simpler calculations to solve a more complex problem, called a cluster problem. Watch this teacher check for understanding of multiplicative distribution and the use of arrays.

This Flash game develops students' computational fluency and flexibility. It can be played alone or with others. Players choose 6 face-down number cards, and the applet provides a target number. Number cards include one each of 25, 50, 75, and 100, and multiple copies of 1 to 10. The goal is to use the selected numbers and the four basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) to arrive at the target. Players can ask the applet to Show a Solution, although others may be possible. Several rule and scoring variations are suggested. A full screen option facilitates use on an interactive board. (This game is not self-checking.)

This collection of 6 games develops place value, operation sense and fluency, estimation, and strategic thinking. It is played on paper with a 6- or 9-sided die (printable pdf game sheets included). Players choose a game grid with empty cells representing the digits of a computation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division). They take turns rolling a die and placing the resulting number in a cell on their own grids. The goal is to create a sum/difference/product/quotient that is closest to a target number. Variations include using a decimal point and scoring options. Teachers' Notes include suggestions for introducing the game, discussion questions, support suggestions, and a link to a more challenging extension (Countdown, cataloged separately).

This web page describes several games and puzzles that build number sense, fact and computational fluency, flexibility, and reasoning. Each activity uses an ordinary set of double-6 dominoes. After describing dominoes generally, the page provides rules for the basic domino game and a variation, and proposes several other challenges involving addition, multiplication and prime numbers. The page includes a link to an interactive Dominoes Environment (cataloged separately).
