This unit was designed as a beginning-of-the-year review for incoming fifth-grade students. It addresses these critical focus areas in math for fourth grade:

Developing understanding and fluency with multidigit multiplication and division:

  • Generalize their understanding of place value to 1,000,000
  • Use models and multiple strategies for multidigit multiplication and division

Developing an understanding of fraction equivalence, ordering, and operations:

  • Develop methods for generating and recognizing equivalent fractions
  • Compose and decompose fractions from unit fractions
  • Multiply fractions by whole numbers

Describing and analyzing 2D shapes:

  • Understand the properties of 2D objects
  • Use their understanding to solve problems involving symmetry

Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multidigit arithmetic.

Understand decimal notation for fractions and compare decimal fractions.

Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
Explain why a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 × 𝘢)/(𝘯 × 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
