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
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.
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. Lessons by Mathalicious My Two Left Feet Should shoe companies sell left and right shoes separately? Students collect survey and measurement data, construct bar graphs, and discuss distributions and measures of central tendency in order to figure out whether shoe companies should necessarily be selling their products in same-size pairs.
