Classroom Overview

Areas of focus in 4th Grade Math

Students focus intensively on the three critical areas specified by the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics in Grade Four:
  • Developing understanding and fluency with multi-digit multiplication, and developing understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends.
  • Developing an understanding of fraction equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers.
  • Understanding that geometric figures can be analyzed and classified based on their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures, and symmetry.
Areas of focus in 5th Grade Math

Students focus intensively on the three critical areas specified by the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics in Grade Five:
  • Developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions, and developing understanding of the multiplication of fractions and of division of fractions in limited cases (unit fractions divided by whole numbers and whole numbers divided by unit fractions).
  • Extending division to 2-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system, developing understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with whole number and decimal operations.
  • Developing understanding of volume.
