4th Grade mathematics
In 4th grade we use two main resources: Everyday Mathematics and XtraMath.
Math Facts Practice-When children gain mastery of their basic math facts, they are better prepared for more advanced Math skills. Therefore, it is essential for them to practice the facts on a regular basis. We encourage your child to practice daily. We will be using a web based program located at www.xtramath.org in school.
Students also have the option of using the program on any computer with Internet access outside of school. A flyer has been sent home with each child to explain how to access the site outside of school.
The practice sequence is addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Hopefully, the children will go through the addition and subtraction levels fairly quickly, as it is expected that students entering Fifth Grade already know these facts. Once these facts are mastered, students begin practicing basic division facts as the academic year concludes.
