Operations and Algebraic Thinking

I Can Use the Four Operations (+, -, x, ¸) to Help Me Understand Math

*I can understand that multiplication fact problems can be seen as comparisons of groups (e.g., 24 =  4 x 6 can be thought of as 4 groups of 6 or 6 groups of 4).  4.OA.1

*I can multiply or divide to solve word problems by using drawings or writing equations and solving for a missing number.  4.OA.2

*I can use what I know about addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to solve multi-step word problems involving whole numbers.  4.OA.3

*I can represent  word problems by using equations with a letter standing for the unknown number.  4.OA.3

*I can determine how reasonable my answers to word problems are by using estimation, mental math and rounding.  4.OA.3

*I can find all factor pairs for a number from 1 to 100.  4.OA.4

*I can determine whether a given whole number up to 100 is a prime or composite number.  4.OA.4

*I can create a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule.   4.OA.5

*I can notice different features of a pattern once it is created by a rule.  4.OA.5

Numbers and Operations in Base Ten

I Can Use Number Sense and Place Value to Help Me Understand Math

*I can recognize  that in multi-digit  whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.  4.NBT.1

*I can read and write larger whole numbers using numerals, words and in expanded form.  4.NBT.2

*I can compare two large numbers using symbols to show the comparison.  4.NBT.2

Number and Operations-Fractions

I Can Use Fractions to Help Me Understand Math

* I can explain (and show models for) why multiplying  a numerator and a denominator by the same number does not change the value of a fraction.  4.NF.1

* I can compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators by creating  common denominators or numerators or by comparing them to a benchmark fraction like one-half.  4.NF.2

*I can recognize  that comparisons of fractions are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole.  4.NF.2

*I can compare fractions using symbols and justify the comparison by using models.  4.NF.2

*I can understand that improper fractions have a greater numerator than denominator.  4.NF.3

*I can understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining  and separating parts referring to the same whole.   4.NF.3

*I can decompose a fraction into  a sum of fractions with the same denominator.  4.NF.3

*I can add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators.    4.NF.3

*I can solve word problems involving  addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators.  4.NF.3

*I can multiply a fraction by a whole number.  4.NF.4

*I can solve word problems involving multiplication  of a fraction by a whole number.  4.NF.4

*I can show a fraction with a denominator of 10 as an equivalent  fraction with a denominator of 100 in order to add the two fractions.  4.NF.5

*I can use decimals to show fractions with denominators of 10 and 100.  4.NF.6

*I can compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size.  4.NF.7

Measurement and Data

I can use Measurement and Data to Help Me Understand Math

*I can show that I know the relative size of measurement units within a single system.  4.MD.1

*I can show the measurements of a larger unit in terms of smaller units and record these in a table.  4.MD.1

*I can use the four operations (+, -, x, ¸) to solve word problems involving measurement; including simple fractions and decimals. 4.MD.2

*I can use what  I know about area and perimeter to solve real world problems involving rectangles.  4.MD.3

*I can recognize  angles as geometric shapes where two rays share a common endpoint.  4.MD.5

*I can understand that angles are measured with reference to a circle, with its center at the common endpoint  of the rays.  4.MD.5

*I can use a protractor to measure angles in whole-number degrees.  4.MD.6

*I can solve addition and subtraction problems involving  angles.  4.MD.7
