The mathematical learning expectations for fourth graders are certainly more complex. The areas where they are expected to learn are Number Sense, Measurement, Geometry, Algebraic Thinking, and Data Analysis. The links on the left will take you to a list of learning expectations for each category. The expectations also have activities linked to them. These activities will help students grasp the required math concepts more easily.
At fourth grade, students gain a deeper understanding of mathematics. They will learn more about division, as well as writing whole numbers in the millions or more. They are also more emotionally independent at this stage, and able to verbalize their thoughts and feelings. This goes hand in hand with the more complex mathematical situations in real-world problem solving that they have to learn at this stage.
