WASHINGTON GRADE 4 MATHEMATICS STANDARDS
Numbers, Operations, Algebra
Students master multiplication and related division facts. They apply these facts as they learn efficient procedures for multiplying large numbers and prepare to learn efficient procedures for division. They apply these procedures, along with mental computation and estimation, to solve problems.
Students solidify their understanding of fractions and decimals and the relationship between them. Students will later use this knowledge when they learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide both fractions and decimals.
Geometry, Measurement, Algebra
Students learn how to measure and calculate areas of rectangles as a basis for later work with areas of other two- and three-dimensional figures. They select appropriate units, tools, and strategies, including formulas, to solve problems involving perimeter or area.
Geometry, Measurement, Algebra, Data/Statistics/Probability
Students apply their work with numbers and operations to convert measurements and they use algebraic notation to describe solutions to problems. Students use coordinate graphs to connect early foundations of algebra and geometry. They explore new uses of whole numbers and fractions to describe sets of data and probabilities.
Reasoning, problem solving, and communication
Students in grade four solve problems that extend their understanding of core mathematical concepts—such as multiplication of multi-digit numbers, area, and the relationships between fractions and decimals—as they make strategic decisions that bring them to reasonable solutions. Students use pictures, symbols, or mathematical language to explain the reasoning behind their decisions and solutions. They further develop their problem-solving skills by making generalizations about the processes used and applying these generalizations in similar problem situations.
