How Math Class Works
How Math Class Works
- Class starts with a review problem or a Sprint (math facts) and materials gathering
- Students learn about the daily learning target and practice on whiteboards (Concept Development).
- Students practice problems with the teacher on paper using the Homework pages.
- Students finish assigned problems independently.
- Students complete Exit Ticket to show their understanding of daily learning target.
- Students use the DreamBox website for additional math practice during Intervention time
- Always have materials with you: sharpened pencils, dry erase marker, eraser for dry erase, hand-held pencil sharpener, earbuds/headphones, red math folder
- Save Homework pages until after quiz/Test is taken. You can review these before tests or quizzes.
- Problem Set pages are the "homework" pages, students will complete homework (Problem Set) on canvas when assigned.
- Canvas will be used for homework and quizzes.
- Students can redo the homework multiple times to practice
- The Canvas Gradebook is NOT used for student grades. The ONLY accurate information about your child's quarterly grade is in PowerSchools. Canvas can show how your student did on a particular assignment.
- Students grades are weighted as follows: 99% Assessments 1% In-progress Learning (Exit Tickets, Problem Sets)
- Look in PowerSchools to see how each entry in the Math Gradebook is designated.
- Retakes: Students may request the chance to improve a quiz or test score with a retake if the score is below 80%. The student should SAVE the original quiz and request a retake from Ms. Davidow. Quizzes or tests may only be made up within the same Unit or Module.
MULTIPLICATION FACTS! 4th graders are expected to have their facts memorized already.
- Memorize multiplication facts as soon as possible!
- Make skip counting charts for each number 1-9 and practice chanting them.
- Get flash cards and practice all of one number (i.e. 3x4, 6x3, 9x3).
- Print practice worksheets from the internet and do them.
- Have older family members quiz on some facts each day!
4th Grade Units of Study - Eureka Math Modules
Module 1: Place Value, Rounding, and Algorithms for Addition and Subtraction
Module 2: Unit Conversions and Problem Solving with Metric Measurement
Module 3: Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division
Module 4: Angle Measure and Plane Figure
Module 5: Fraction Equivalence, Ordering and Operations
Module 6: Decimal Fractions
Module 7: Exploring Measurement in Multiplication
****4th Grade Modules are taught out of order. The sequence is as follows:
Module 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 4, 2
This allows the most time to be spent on the essential standards of 4th grade.
