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).

Standard 4.MD.3

Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real-world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.

• Area (elementary)
In this lesson students will find the area of rectangular shapes and irregular shapes with right angles.
• Grade 4 Mathematics Module 3: Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division
In this 43-day module, students use place value understanding and visual representations to solve multiplication and division problems with multi-digit numbers. As a key area of focus for Grade 4, this module moves slowly but comprehensively to develop students' ability to reason about the methods and models chosen to solve problems with multi-digit factors and dividends.
• Grade 4 Mathematics Module 5: Fraction Equivalence, Ordering, and Operations
In this 40-day module, students build on their Grade 3 work with unit fractions as they explore fraction equivalence and extend this understanding to mixed numbers. This leads to the comparison of fractions and mixed numbers and the representation of both in a variety of models. Benchmark fractions play an important part in students ability to generalize and reason about relative fraction and mixed number sizes. Students then have the opportunity to apply what they know to be true for whole number operations to the new concepts of fraction and mixed number operations.
• Grade 4 Unit 7: Measurement (Georgia Standards)
In this unit students will investigate what it means to measure length, weight, liquid volume, time, and angles, understand how to use standardized tools to measure length, weight, liquid volume, time, and angles, understand how different units within a system (customary and metric) are related to each other, know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz; L, ml; hr, min, sec. and solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals.
• Karl's Garden
Students are given this task: "Karl's rectangular vegetable garden is 20 feet by 45 feet, and Makenna's is 25 feet by 40 feet. Whose garden is larger in area?" The purpose of the task is for students to solve a multi-step multiplication problem in a context that involves area.
