This file contains SMART Notebook pages for all 16 lessons in the Fourth Grade New York State Math Module 4. For each lesson, pages are dedicated to the Fluency Practice, Application Problem, and Concept Development sections of the modules. Interactive models and diagrams are included where applicable. These pages help teachers to follow the sequence of the lessons without having to "read" from the script provided by New York State.
Engage New York's Overview for Module 4:
This 20-day module introduces points, lines, line segments, rays, and angles, as well as the relationships between them. Students construct, recognize, and define these geometric objects before using their new knowledge and understanding to classify figures and solve problems. With angle measure playing a key role in their work throughout the module, students learn how to create and measure angles, as well as create and solve equations to find unknown angle measures. In these problems, where the unknown angle is represented by a letter, students explore both measuring the unknown angle with a protractor and reasoning through the solving of an equation. Through decomposition and composition activities as well as an exploration of symmetry, students recognize specific attributes present in two-dimensional figures. They further develop their understanding of these attributes as they classify two-dimensional figures based on them.
