4th grade Standards (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills):

4.3 Number and operations. The student applies mathematical process standards to represent and generate fractions to solve problems. The student is expected to:

4.3A represent a fraction a/b as a sum of fractions 1/b, where a and b are whole numbers and b > 0.

4.3B decompose a fraction in more than one way into a sum of fractions with the same denominator using concrete and pictorial models and recording results with symbolic representations.

4.3E represent and solve addition and subtraction of fractions with equal denominators using objects and pictorial models that build to the number line and properties of operations.

4.3F evaluate the reasonableness of sums and differences of fractions using benchmark fractions 0, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1, referring to the same whole.
