Storyline: Beechwood Elementary School
DESCRIPTION
Step inside Mrs. Susie’s Grade 4 math class as she challenges students to take ownership of their learning, provide feedback to one another, and reflect on their learning targets to know what they need to work on to succeed.
  • CCSS.Mathematics.4.OA.5 Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.
  • CCSS.Mathematics.4.NBT.5 Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
