Strand: NUMBER AND OPERATIONS IN BASE TEN (4.NBT)

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.2

Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

  • 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
  • IXL Game: Mixed operations: Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division word problems
    This game helps fourth graders understand how to read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. This is just one of many online games that supports the Utah Math core. Note: The IXL site requires subscription for unlimited use.
  • 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)
  • Ordering 4-digit Numbers
    This task includes three-digit numbers with large hundreds digits and four-digit numbers with small thousands digits so that students must infer the presence of a 0 in the thousands place in order to compare. It also includes numbers with strategically placed zeros and an unusual request to order them from greatest to least in addition to the more traditional least to greatest.
