Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Grade(s) 4 resources related to the following standard:
Measurement and Data
Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles.
7. Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.

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 page provides examples of 4th Grade Measurement and Data 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 4th Grade Measurement and Data Activities listed are in PDF format.

In this activity, learners decipher a page from the Dresden Codex, one of the few Mayan books still in existence. By thinking like an archaeologist, students combine their mathematical abilities with some basic logic and trial-and-error investigation to figure out what the codex means. In the course of this explorations, participants discover: How archaeologists have figured out what Mayan documents mean. How the Mayan system of counting is like ours, and how it is different. How Mayan beliefs were tied to their understanding of mathematics.

This narrative document describes the progression of Geometric Measurement across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for elementary geometric measurement. Among those are recognizing measurable attributes, comparing, connecting with number, estimating, and differentiating linear measurement from area and volume.

This iOS app is an open-ended tool for exploring a variety of mathematical topics. Learners stretch colored bands around pegs to form line segments and polygons in order to make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, and fractions. Users can switch from a 25-peg board to an expanded 150-peg board and fill in the interior of shapes with transparent color.

Users are introduced to simple programming concepts and learn about geometry by navigating a "turtle" around the screen and creating colorful geometric artwork. Users can command the turtle to move forward or backward, turn right or left a specified number of degrees, and change the color of its trail.
