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.3

Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.

  • 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

    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)
  • Rounding on the Number Line
    This task helps students understand the concept of rounding by using the number line to illustrate how to find the closest benchmark numbers.
  • Rounding to the Nearest 100 and 1000
    Part (a) of this task fits squarely within third grade when students "use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100". Part (b) is a first step in rounding beyond tens and hundreds.
  • Rounding to the Nearest 1000
    The purpose of this task is for students to estimate the position of numbers less than 10,000 on the number line, to practice rounding, and to make the connection between rounding and location on the number line.
  • Sample Assessment Task: Numbers of Stadium Seats
    This sample three-part assessment task calls for students to demonstrate reasoning skills and a deep conceptual knowledge of place value in atypical ways. Use the navigation at the upper right of this page to access the task.
