Mathematics Grade 4
Strand: MEASUREMENT AND DATA (4.MD)
Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit (Standards 4.MD.1–2)
. Apply knowledge of area and perimeter to solve realworld and mathematical problems (Standard 4.MD.3)
. Represent and interpret data through the use of a line plot (Standard 4.MD.4)
. Understand various concepts of angles and angle measurement (Standard 4.MD.5–7)
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money.
Double or More
This lesson asks the students to double, triple or halve a recipe by using the four operations and fractions.
Grade 4 Mathematics Module 2: Unit Conversions and Problem Solving with Metric Measurement
Module 2 uses length, mass and capacity in the metric system to convert between units using place value knowledge. Students recognize patterns of converting units on the place value chart, just as 1000 grams is equal 1 kilogram, 1000 ones is equal to 1 thousand. Conversions are recorded in two-column tables and number lines, and are applied in single- and multi-step word problems solved by the addition and subtraction algorithm or a special strategy. Mixed unit practice prepares students for multi-digit operations and manipulating fractional units in future modules.
