     Math: 3rd Quarter Skills

    Focus Standard(s):


    MAFS.4.MD.1.3- 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. (DOK 2)

    MAFS.4.MD.1.1- Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ... (DOK 1)

    MAFS.4.MD.1.2- Use the four operations to solve word problems1 involving distances, intervals of time, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals2 . Represent fractional quantities of distance and intervals of time using linear models. (1See glossary Table 1 and Table 2) ( 2Computational fluency with fractions and decimals is not the goal for students at this grade level.) (DOK 2)

    MAFS.4.G.1.1- Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures. (DOK 1)

    MAFS.4.G.1.2- Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles. (DOK 2)

    MAFS.4.G.1.3- Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry. (DOK 2)

    MAFS.4.MD.3.5- Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement: a. An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a “one-degree angle,” and can be used to measure angles. b. An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees. (DOK 1)

    MAFS.4.MD.3.6- Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure. (DOK 2)

    MAFS.4.MD.3.7- Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure. (DOK 2)

    SC.4.E.6.4: (DOK 2) – Describe the basic differences between physical weathering (breaking down of rock by wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants) and erosion (movement of rock by gravity, wind, water, and ice).

    SC.4.E.6.5: (DOK 3) – Investigate how technology and tools help to extend the ability of humans to observe very small things and very large things.
