Weekly Objectives and Tests

Week of January 29 - February 2

Math:

*Chapter 9: Fractions

 

4.NF.3: I can understand a fraction a/b with a>1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.

4.NF.3a: I can understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.

4.NF.3b: I can decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. I can justify decompositions by using a visual fraction model (including, but not limited to: concrete models, illustrations, tape diagram, number line, area model, etc.)

Examples: 3/8= 1/8+1/8+1/8; 3/8= 1/8+2/8

4.NF.3c: I can add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.

4.NF.3d: I can solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.

4.NF.4: I can apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.

4.NF.4a: I can understand a fraction a/b as a multiple of 1/b. For example, use a visual fraction model to represent 5/4 as the product 5 x (1/4), recording the conclusion by the equation 5/4= 5 x (1/4).

4.NF.4b: I can understand a multiple of a/b as a multiple of 1/b, and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number. For example, use a visual fraction model to express 3 x (2/5) as 6 x (1/5), recognizing this product as 6/5. (In general, n x (a/b)=(nxa)/b.)

4.NF.4c: I can solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a whole number, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, if each person at a party will eat 3/8 of a pound of roast beef, and there will be 5 people at the party, how many pounds of roast beef will be needed? Between what two whole numbers do you expect your answer to lie?
