Class IV Math
Class IV math is designed around the core objectives of place value through trillions, multiplication and division of larger numbers, addition and subtraction of decimals to hundredths, fractions, and geometry. Students also work with measurement, data and graphs, and probability. This program emphasizes thinking and problem solving as well as computation. Math facts are memorized and become computational tools. Students work on critical thinking through problem solving, reasoning, and generalization. Activities coincide with specific math units to connect application of knowledge to real life events. Cooperative learning and varied small group interactive activities support the concepts presented. Mathematical ideas are related to other areas of the curriculum so that students acquire broader notions about the interconnectedness to other fields.
