Fourth Grade EPP (2020-21)
- Stepping Stones Journals
- Math Notebooks
- ST Math (online program focussed on math reasoning and modeling with mathematics)
- First in Math (online math games designed to promote critical thinking skills and build math fluency)
- SeeSaw (online learning platform)
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 assignments will be posted on SeeSaw. This is a new online digital platform that has been purchased for students in grades K-5.
All-In Plan- Students will be assigned homework every Wednesday. It will be due the following Wednesday. Students will complete Step it Up Homework assignments. All work should be shown on homework packets or extra paper (if needed) with the problems clearly labeled. Homework will cover math skills previously learned in class. If your child has homework questions, encourage him/her to speak up and ask his/her teacher for help.
Hybrid Plan- Group A will be given homework on Wednesday. It will be due on the following Wedneday. Group B will be given homework on Thursday. It will be due the following Thursday.
Remote Learning Plan- Students will be given future homework assignments to keep in their math folder in the event of a remote learning plan in place. Students will be expected to turn in homework packets when we return to school. Homework and classwork assignments will be posted on Seesaw.

Ohio’s Learning Standards
Below are some of the standards we will focus on during Trimester 1.
Gain familiarity with factors and multiples.
4.OA.4 Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1-100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is prime or composite.
Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic with whole numbers less than or equal to 1,000,000.
4.NBT.4 FluentlyG add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using a standard algorithmG.
4.NBT.5 Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
MEASUREMENT AND DATA 4.MD Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.
4.MD.1 Know relative sizes of the metric measurement units within one system of units. Metric units include kilometer, meter, centimeter, and millimeter; kilogram and gram; and liter and milliliter. Express a larger measurement unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement conversions in a two-column table. For example, express the length of a 4-meter rope in centimeters. Because 1 meter is 100 times as long as a 1 centimeter, a two-column table of meters and centimeters includes the number pairs 1 and 100, 2 and 200.
Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles.
4.MD.5 Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement.
- Understand an angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a “one-degree angle,” and can be used to measure angles.
- Understand an angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees.
4.MD.6 Measure angles in whole number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.
4.MD.7 Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.
GEOMETRY 4.G Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.
4.G.1 Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, and obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two dimensional figures.
4.G.2 Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines or the presence or absence of angles of a specified side.
