  1. I have created a series of Math Mysteries to review all of the skills in 4th grade. Students follow the story of forgetful Ms. Wylder and her team of math sleuths as they solve mysteries throughout the school. Almost all 4.NBT, 4.OA, and 4.NF standards are reviewed.

Now Offered for Free! If you and your students love this, please buy the other mysteries.

This amazing product will have students eager to review math skills for place value. As students work through the math mystery, they get clues that will lead them to the location of a missing math notebook. Skills include expanded form, number names, value of digits, and rounding.

Students then use ciphers to decode secret messages that are enduring math understandings.

This would be a great review right before a test or as homework after the concepts have been taught.

This product is unique because the math is very specific to the Common Core standards and organized in a way that makes sense to how we teach.

I hope that your students love my math mysteries as much as my students do!

Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
