Math

4th grade (U.S.)

4th grade is the time to start really fine-tuning your arithmetic skills. Not only will you be a multi-digit addition and subtraction rockstar, but you'll extend the multiplication and division that you started in 3rd grade to several digits. You'll also discover that you sometimes have something left over (called a "remainder") when you divide. In 3rd grade you learned what a fraction is. Now you'll start adding, subtracting, multiplying, and comparing them. You'll also see how they relate to decimals. On other fronts, you'll learn how to convert between different units (which is super important when comparing the size and speed of robot unicorns in different countries) and continue your journey thinking about various shapes in two dimensions. Some of the foundational concepts of geometry (like lines, rays and angles) also get introduced. As always, we'll round this out with a healthy dose of applied word problems and explorations of number patterns and properties (including the ideas of factors, multiples and prime numbers). The fun must not stop! (Content was selected for this grade level based on a typical curriculum in the United States.)

Addition and subtraction

Fourth grade is the time to really fine-tune your addition and subtraction skills to the point that you can add and subtract pretty much any multi-digit, whole number!

Multiplication and division

Let's continue on the multiplication and division adventure that was started in third grade--now we'll think about these operations with multi-digit numbers and discover that we sometimes have something left over, or a remainder, when we divide.

Fractions

In 3rd grade, you got a basic conceptual understanding of what a fraction is. Now we dig deeper by comparing fractions and starting to perform operations on them. We also see how they relate to decimals.

Measurement and data

When we measure anything, we do it in human-defined 'units'. Different units were defined in different places and for different scales. Let's think about how to convert between the them! We'll also get our feet wet in angles and continue thinking about perimeter and area!

Geometry

The basic foundations of geometry-lines, rays, angles--will be explored! On top of that, we will start to see how various shapes can be classified!

Factors, multiples and patterns

We know that 3x2x5 = 30. So 2, 3, and 5 are factors of 30. 30 is a multiple of each of 3, 2, and 5. If a number only has itself and 1 as factors, then the number is "prime". Don't worry, this is explained in much more depth in the tutorials in this topic. We will also explore some mathematical patterns.

Place value and rounding

We've been exploring place value for several years now, but now we make sure that we **really** get how one place relates to another. We then use this deep understanding for understanding the conventions for rounding.
Factors, multiples and patterns
We know that 3x2x5 = 30. So 2, 3, and 5 are factors of 30. 30 is a multiple of each of 3, 2, and 5. If a number only has itself and 1 as factors, then the number is "prime". Don't worry, this is explained in much more depth in the tutorials in this topic. We will also explore some mathematical patterns.

Prime and composite numbers

Prime numbers have been studied by mathematicians and mystics for ages (seriously). They are both basic and mysterious. The more you explore them, the more you will realize that the universe is a fascinating place. This tutorial will introduce you to the magical world of prime numbers. Common Core Standard: 4.OA.B.4

Factors and multiples

In this tutorial, we'll begin to think about the numbers that "make up" the number. This will be useful throughout our study of math. Whether we are adding fractions, exploring mystical number patterns, or breaking computer codes, factoring numbers are key! Eye of the tiger! Common Core Standard: 4.OA.B.4

Math patterns

Let's now use our mathematical toolkit to discover and make use of patterns! This is a seriously fun tutorial.
