Review Topics: Chapter 7 Add and Subtract Fractions,

Chapter 6 Fraction Equivalence and Comparison & Chapter 4 Division

 

Standard(s)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4.NF.1

6.1-6.5 Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering. Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction 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.

**Review**

 

4.NF.2

6.6-6.8 Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering. 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 ½. 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. 

**Review**

 

 4.NF.3

7.1 Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers. 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.

 

4.NF.3

7.2, 7.6 Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers. Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.

b. Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

 

4.NF.3

7.7-7.9 Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers. Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.

c. Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.

 

 

4.NF.3

7.3-7.5, 7.10 Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers. Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.

d. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.

 

4.OA.3

Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.

Solve multistep (two or more operational steps) word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.

4.NBT.6

4.1, 4.2, 4.4-4.11 Use Place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.

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.
