• 1 Fourth Grade Bridges Math Program  1

    We will be working with our new Grade 4 program of Bridges in Mathematics.  It contains many exciting and challenging features for everyone!      


    In grade 4 math, your child will:

    • understand factors and multiples, e.g., 1,2,4,5,10, and 20 are all factors of 20, and 20 is a multiple of each of those numbers
    • understand that a prime number has only 2 factors—1 and itself, while a composite number has more than 2 factors
    • multiply multi-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations
    • divide 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and the relationship between multiplication and division
    • read, write, and compare multi-digit numbers and round multi-digit numbers to any place
    • add and subtract multi-digit numbers accurately and efficiently
    • recognize and generate equivalent fractions
    • compare two fractions with different numerators and denominators
    • add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with like denominators
    • multiply a fraction by a whole number
    • write fractions with denominators of 10 or 100 in decimal notation
    • compare decimal numbers with digits to the hundredths place
    • know the relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units, including metric length, metric mass, customary weight, metric volume, and time
    • use formulas for area and perimeter of a rectangle to solve problems
    • measure and sketch angles with a protractor
    • classify 2-D shapes
    • identify and draw lines of symmetry
