# 8 Math. Standards G4

### A description of what students will do for each Standard in GR 4

Term | Definition |
---|---|

Students know that doing mathematics involves solving problems and discussing how they solved them. Students explain to the meaning of a problem and look for ways to solve it. Students may use concrete objects to help conceptualize and solve problems. | Standard for Mathematical Practice 1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. |

Students experiment with representing problem situations in multiple ways including numbers, words (mathematical language), drawing pictures, using objects, making a chart, list, or graph, creating equations, etc. | Standard for Mathematical Practice 4: Model with mathematics. |

Students in fourth grade should notice repetitive actions in computation to make generalizations. They use models to explain calculations and understand how algorithms work. They also use models to examine patterns and generate their own algorithms. . | Standard for Mathematical Practice 8: Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. |

Students develop mathematical communication skills and try to use clear and precise language in their discussions with others and in their own reasoning. They are careful about specifying units of measure and state the meaning of the symbols they choose. | Standard for Mathematical Practice 6: Attend to precision. |

Students may construct arguments using concrete referents, such as objects, pictures, and drawings. They explain their thinking and make connections between models and equations, then refine their mathematical communication skills as they participate in m | Standard for Mathematical Practice 3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. |

Students consider the available tools (including estimation) when solving a mathematical problem and decide when certain tools might be helpful. | Standard for Mathematical Practice 5: Use appropriate tools strategically. |

Students connect quantity to written symbols and create a logical representation of the problem at hand, considering both the appropriate units involved and the meaning of quantities. They extend this understanding from whole numbers to their work with f | Standard for Mathematical Practice 2: Reason abstractly and quantitatively. |

Students look closely to discover a pattern or structure. They relate representations of counting problems such as tree diagrams and arrays to the multiplication principal of counting. They generate number or shape patterns that follow a given rule. | Standard for Mathematical Practice 7: Look for and make use of structure. |
