Strand: NUMBER AND OPERATIONS - FRACTIONS (4.NF)

Extend understanding of equivalence and ordering of fractions (Standards 4.NF.1–2). Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers (Standards 4.NF.3–4). Understand decimal notation to the hundredths and compare decimal fractions with denominators of 10 and 100 (Standards 4.NF.5– 7). Denominators for fourth grade are limited to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 100.

Standard 4.NF.6

Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100, describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.

This problem simply asks students to add the tenths and hundredths together.
• Dimes and Pennies
This task asks: "A dime is 1/10 of a dollar and a penny is 1/100 of a dollar. What fraction of a dollar is 6 dimes and 3 pennies? Write your answer in both fraction and decimal form."
• Expanded Fractions and Decimals
The purpose of this task is for students to show they understand the connection between fraction and decimal notation by writing the same numbers both ways.
• Explore the Relationship Among Fractions, Decimal Notation, and Percents
The students watch a series of videos to help them learn how fractions, decimals and percents can all be used to represent the same value. A classroom activity builds on this understanding. NOTE: You have to create a Free PBS Account to view this web page, but it is easy to do and worth the effort.
• Fraction Conversion 2 (with percents)
By using an applet students will learn how to convert between fractions and decimals in this lesson.
• Fraction Equivalence
Students are given this task: "Explain why 6/10=60.100. Draw a picture to illustrate your explanation."
• Grade 4 Mathematics Module 6: Decimal Fractions
This 20-day module gives students their first opportunity to explore decimal numbers via their relationship to decimal fractions, expressing a given quantity in both fraction and decimal forms. Utilizing the understanding of fractions developed throughout Module 5, students apply the same reasoning to decimal numbers, building a solid foundation for Grade 5 work with decimal operations.
• How Many Tenths and Hundredths?
In this task students are given a list of equations such as "1 tenth + 4 hundredths = ______________ hundredths" and asked to finish the equations to make true statements.
• Rational Number Project
This portal leads to 28 lesson plans designed to help students understand the four operations with fractions.
• USBE Core Guide (4NF6)
This core guide was developed by USBE and Utah educators.
• Using Place Value
Each part of this task highlights a slightly different aspect of place value as it relates to decimal notation. More than simply being comfortable with decimal notation, the point is for students to be able to move fluidly between and among the different ways that a single value can be represented and to understand the relative size of the numbers in each place.
