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.4

Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

  • Arithmetic Four
    In this game for two players, students solve problems involving whole number and integer addition, subtraction, multiplication, 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
  • Mental Division Strategy
    The task presents the scenario where Jillian says "I know that 20 times 7 is 140 and if I take away 2 sevens that leaves 126. So 126 ÷ 7 = 18." Students must then respond to this statement by answering if she's correct, drawing a picture showing her reasoning and using that method to solve another problem.
  • 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)
  • Order of Operations Four
    This applet pits two players against each other in solving expressions using the four basic operations.
  • Reasoning About Division
    The Common Core allows students to get a better understanding of Math concepts and skills, including division. This Teaching Channel video shows how you can teach reasoning about division in your classroom. (7 min.)
  • To Regroup or Not to Regroup
    This task presents an incomplete problem and asks students to choose numbers to subtract (subtrahends) so that the resulting problem requires different types of regrouping.
