4th grade math games The 4th grade math games on this website focus on several important topics such as adding and subtracting decimals and fractions with common denominators, rounding decimals, measuring angles with appropriate units and tools, understanding the characteristics of geometric plane and solid figures, using common measurement units to determine weight, and using tables, graphs, and charts to record and analyze data. Fourth grade students, are you ready to show off your math skills? Try one of these games! Properties of Addition - Soccer Game
Visual Number animated explorer,learn division,square & triangular The number explorer allows demonstration of the properties of any positive whole number of reasonable size. You can use large numbers, however in practice numbers up to 100 work best for showing division properties. Three different shapes can be used, the original fish swim around and obediently arrange themselves to show number properties. However balls or cards cards can be used instead, these animate faster and are better for displaying numbers. Math Survey – Students I am taking Justin Lanier’s call to action from his talk “Beyond Beauty” at the Global Math Department. I posted over the weekend about the results of my survey of teachers and staff at my school. Today, I gave it to my students. theconversation New research has found some teachers mark boys' primary (elementary) school maths tests more favourably than girls, impacting girls' uptake of advanced mathematics and science subjects in high school. Entrance rates into maths and science degrees at university level can also be traced back to the impacts of teachers' gender bias in primary school. Higher levels of mathematics and science education have been linked to greater employment opportunities and higher earnings, meaning a primary teacher’s attitude towards maths can have a serious impact on a child’s future success. Teachers assume boys are better at maths The researchers followed nearly 3000 students from 6th grade to the end of high school. As a measure of teacher bias, they compared school 6th grade test marks given by teachers who knew the students' sex, with external test marks for the same students, but with no identifying characteristics provided.
Secondary Teacher Page Current Geometrical reasoning can involve coordinate geometry and properties of 2d and 3d shapes, and may even lead to algebraic representations. These problems invite you to explore geometry in a variety of contexts. 3-5 Formative Instructional and Assessment Tasks - 4.NF.3-4.NF.4 Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers.4.NF.3 Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b. a. Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole. b. Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation.
Percentage Fraction Decimal grid - interactive teaching resource This interactive activity explores the representation of fractions, decimals and percentages using either a square or circle divided into equal parts. When the activity is launched, a 100 square grid is shown. Click the random button to create a grid of different colors. The squares change so they are either orange or white. You can change the number of colors using the color number control, change it to 5 and press random again and there will now be 5 different colors in the grid. You can arrange the grid automatically by clicking arrange button, to reset the grid back to white click the trash button
Mr. B's Blog: I Volunteer as Tribute: The Final HSCN The arena set, the districts formed, the Capitol ready. Sounds like the beginning of the Hunger Games, doesn't it? This was the staging for the final HSCN: The Math Hunger Games. To bring you up to speed if you are not familiar with my HSCN, I hosted evenings three times a month where I instructed parents on math and reading. This is explored more in depth in this blog post. The final HSCN was Students vs.
