Fourth Grade EPP Curriculum Overview
We will work on Ohio’s Learning Standards and the 8 Mathematical practices using the program Stepping Stones. We will continue to work on enrichment activities to deepen our appreciation and passion for mathematics. Our Stepping Stones Student Journal is divided into 12 Modules. We will complete 4 Modules per Trimester. The curriculum will spiral and students will work on a variety of math skills in each Module.
Homework Expectations
Homework assignments will be posted on SeeSaw. This is a new online digital platform that has been purchased for students in grades K5. Students will have daily assignments posted in Seesaw for their “At Home” days. These activities will include math practice problems, problem solving activities, ST Math, First in Math, watching online math videos, and/or online math games.
Current Math Topics
I am amazed at how well students adapted to our Remote Learning and Hybrid Learning Model for the first trimester!
For trimester 1, students explored Aestheometry The Beauty of Geometry! We explored angle measurements and created tables to determine patterns. Fourth graders did a great job creating their projects.
We are working on two lessons a day during our hybrid model. We are working on an easier lesson and more challenging lesson each day. In November and December, we will work on finishing Module 6. Then, we will begin our second book (Modules 712).

Ohio Learning Standards
Below are some of the standards we will focus on during Trimester 2.
Critical Area 1: Developing an understanding and fluency with multidigit multiplication, and developing understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multidigit dividends as part of effectively and efficiently performing multidigit arithmeticStudents generalize their understanding of place value to 1,000,000, understanding the relative sizes of numbers in each place. They apply their understanding of models for multiplication (equalsized groups, arrays, and area models), place value, and properties of operations, in particular the distributive property, as they develop, discuss, and use efficient, accurate, and generalizable methods to compute products of multidigit whole numbers. Depending on the numbers and the context, they select and accurately apply appropriate methods to estimate or mentally calculate products. They develop fluency with efficient procedures for multiplying whole numbers; understand and explain why the procedures work based on place value and properties of operations; and use them to solve problems. Students apply their understanding of models for division, place value, properties of operations, and the relationship of division to multiplication as they develop, discuss, and use efficient, accurate, and generalizable procedures to find quotients involving multidigit dividends. They select and accurately apply appropriate methods to estimate and mentally calculate quotients, and interpret remainders based upon the context. Students efficiently and effectively add and subtract multidigit whole numbers.
Critical Area 2: Developing an understanding of fraction equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers Students develop understanding of fraction equivalence and operations with fractions. They recognize that two different fractions can be equal, e.g., 15/9 = 5/3, and they develop methods such as using models for generating and recognizing equivalent fractions. Students extend previous understandings about how fractions are built from unit fractions, composing fractions from unit fractions, decomposing fractions into unit fractions, and using the meaning of fractions and the meaning of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number. Students solve measurement problems involving conversion of measurements and fractions.
Critical Area 3: Understanding that geometric figures can be analyzed and classified based on their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, and particular angle measures Students describe, analyze, compare, and classify twodimensional shapes. Through building, drawing, and analyzing twodimensional shapes, students deepen their understanding of properties of twodimensional objects and the use of them to solve problems.
