Math Goals


Math Curriculum Goals:

In general, the Math Department seeks to have 4 grade Brookwood Students:

Number and Operation

  • Read, write and sequence numbers up to 10,000
  • Add and subtract multiples of 10, 100, and 1,000 fluently
  • Solve multi-digit addition and subtraction problems accurately and efficiently, choosing from a number of mastered strategies
  • Demonstrate fluency with multiplication combinations through 12 x 12
  • Use arrays, pictures of models or groups, and story contexts to demonstrate understanding of multiplication situations and relationships
  • Find the factors of 2-digit numbers
  • Multiply by 10 and multiples of 10
  • Multiply 2-digit numbers efficiently
  • Use arrays, pictures, models, and story problems to demonstrate understanding of division situations and relationships
  • Solve division problems with 1-digit and some 2-digit divisors (for example, 11, 25, multiples of 10) using at least one strategy efficiently
  • Read, write, and interpret decimal fractions in tenths and hundredths, recognizing decimal notation as an extension of the place value system used for whole numbers
  • Order fractions with like and unlike denominators and locate them on a number line
  • Solve problems involving fraction relationships and fractional amounts of an area

Geometry and Measurement

  • Identify and classify quadrilaterals
  •  Know that a rich angle measures 90 degrees, and use this as a landmark to find angles of 30, 45, and 60 degrees
  • Find the area of polygons using a square unit of measure
  • Identify fractional parts of an area
  • Identify 2-D silhouettes of 3-D solids
  • Draw 2-D representations showing different perspectives of a 3-D object
  • Find the volume of a rectangular prism

  Data Analysis and Probability

  • Organize and represent data about two groups to compare the groups
  • Determine the median of a numerical data set
  • Use evidence from a set of data to support an argument
  • Describe the probability of an event in terms of a scale from 0 to 1
  • Interpret probability as the likelihood of an event, where 0 is impossible and 1 is certain

Patterns, Functions, and Algebra

  • Connect tables and graphs to each other and to the situations they represent
  • Graph a table of values onto a coordinate grid
  • Describe how a graph shows change; relate steepness to the rate of change
  • Locate increasing, decreasing, and constant rate of change on a graph
  • In a constant change scenario, write rules to express the value of one quantity in terms of the other
