**Fourth Grade Mathematicians**

*Here is a great list of the skills fourth graders will learn this year.

This list is taken from the Common Core Parents Handbook from California.

Fourth graders use their knowledge of place value to generalize to 1,000,000 and learn to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place. They fluently add and subtract using the standard algorithm and multiply and divide with multi-digit numbers. Fourth graders extend understanding of fractions to include equivalence, ordering and simple decimal notation. Students measure angles and classify geometric shapes by lines (parallel, perpendicular, etc.) and angles (right, acute, obtuse, etc.). Use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with whole numbers to solve word problems.
