Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers by analyzing patterns, writing whole numbers in a variety of ways, making comparisons, and rounding (Standards 4.NBT.13). Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multidigit addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division using a one-digit divisor (Standards 4.NBT.46). Expectations in this strand are limited to whole numbers less than or equal to 1,000,000.

Standard 4.NBT.1

Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.

  • Grade 4 Mathematics Module 1: Place Value, Rounding, and Algorithms for Addition and Subtraction
    In this 25-day module of Grade 4, students extend their work with whole numbers. They begin with large numbers using familiar units (hundreds and thousands) and develop their understanding of millions by building knowledge of the pattern of times ten in the base ten system on the place value chart (4.NBT.1). They recognize that each sequence of three digits is read as hundreds, tens, and ones followed by the naming of the corresponding base thousand unit (thousand, million, billion).
  • Grade 4 Unit 1: Whole Numbers, Place Value, and Rounding (Georgia Standards)
    In this unit students will read numbers correctly through the millions, write numbers correctly through millions in standard form, write numbers correctly through millions in expanded form, identify the place value name for multi-digit whole numbers, identify the place value locations for multi-digit whole numbers, round multi-digit whole numbers to any place, fluently solve multi-digit addition and subtraction problems using the standard algorithm and solve multi-step problems using the four operations
  • Number and Operations in Base Ten (4.NBT) - Fourth Grade Core Guide
    The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and educators around the state of Utah developed these guides for Fourth Grade Mathematics - Number and Operations in Base Ten (4.NBT)
  • Thousands and Millions of Fourth Graders
    Students are given facts about the number of fourth graders in different places and asked to make calculations comparing the numbers. The purpose of this task is to help students understand the multiplicative relationship between commonly used large numbers (thousands and millions) by using their understanding of place value.
  • Threatened and Endangered
    Given facts about two endangered and threatened animals students are asked a question requiring them to understand multiplying and dividing whole numbers by powers of 10.
