4th Grade Common Core Resources

Here you will find all fourth grade resources to guide and support mathematics teaching and learning.

These resources are organized by mathematical strand and refer to specific Common Core math content standards.

Quick reference: What are these tools?

Operations and Algebraic Thinking (OA)

Number and Operations in Base Ten (NBT)

  • 4.NBT.4

    Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

    Problems of the Month
  • 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.

  • 4.NBT.6

    Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

Numbers and Operations - Fractions (NF)

  • 4.NF.1

    Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.

    Formative Re-Engaging Lessons
  • 4.NF.2

    Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

    Problems of the Month
  • 4.NF.3

    Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.

    Performance Assessment Tasks
  • 4.NF.4

    Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.

Measurement and Data (MD)

  • 4.MD.1

    Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two column table.

    Problems of the Month
  • 4.MD.2

    Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.

    Problems of the Month
  • 4.MD.3

    Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.

    Problems of the Month
    Performance Assessment Tasks
  • 4.MD.5

    Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement.

    Problems of the Month
  • 4.MD.6

    Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.
