Teacher's Notes: Broken Calculator (Ten Minute Math) reinforces 4.P.2, 4.N.9, 4.N.11, and 4.N.12. Inv. 1.1, make connections between landmark whole
numbers and fractional & decimal landmarks, for ex. 25 is 1/4 of 100, 500 is 1/2 of 1000, etc. When assessing students familiarity with the structure of the
number system up to the 100's, use base 10 blocks as needed. Be cognizant of Teacher Note # 5 on p. 31 of the teacher's guide. When students are finding
numbers in their 1000s book make connections to rounding, for example, if a students states 541 is closer to 500 rather than 600, explain that it is a form of
rounding to the nearest 100, and so on. The teacher may want to take this opportunity to reintroduce estimation (4.N.17) as a strategy. SAB p. 3, 11, & 15
reinforce 4.N.11. This is a great time to introduce the place value game "The Greatest." Ask your resource teacher for a copy from the district created math
specialist binder. Standard 4.N.1 expects mastery up to 100,000, challenge & differentiate up to that place value when completing any or all of the sessions.

Teacher's Notes: Ten-Minute Math Broken Calculator reinforces 4.P.2, 4.N.9. 4.N.11, 4.N.12. During Inv. 3.1, make connections between landmark whole
numbers and fractional and decimal landmarks, for example, 2,500 is 1/4 of 10,000, 5,000 = .5 of 10,000, etc. When students are finding numbers in their
10,000s chart make connections to rounding, for example, if a student states 3,218 is between 3,200 and 3,300 they have rounded to the nearest 100, or
they could round to the nearest 1000, etc. Student Activity sheet p. 42 reinforces 4.N.10, 4.N.11, 4.N.13. During Inv. 3.4, differentiate by having students
convert miles to feet (teacher may use a map of Lowell and simpler problems.) and show the addition another way, this may extend problems up to 5-digit
numbers for 4.N.12 and 4.M.2 simple unit conversion. Remember to use horizontal and vertical notation. Play the differentiated game "Close to 10,000".
Then extend the game by having students go back to their recording sheets and write the sums in expanded notation and in words. Additional game
sheets with this differentiation can be located by your math resource teacher in the district specialist created binder. Continue playing "The Greatest"

Teacher's Notes: Broken Calculator (Ten-Minute Math) reinforces 4.P.2, 4.N.9. 4.N.11, 4.N.12. Encourage students to use the inverse to check their
answers. Standard 4.N.1 expects mastery up to 100,000, challenge and differentiate up to that place value when completing any or all of the sessions in
these investigations. During Inv. 4.5, introducing Which is Farther?, have students convert miles to feet, this will reinforce 4.M.2 & 4.N.12. Student Activity
sheets p. 67 & 68 reinforce 4.N.10 & 4.N.12; p. 69 reinforces 4.N.12; p. 70-71 reinforce 4.N.7 & 4.N.11; p. 73-74 reinforces 4.N.11, 4.N.12, 4.M.1, & 4.M.2.
Differentiate sheets 73-74 by having students convert to tons and ounces and show their solutions using those units of measure.

Teacher's Notes: Standards 4.P.2, and 4.P.4 are addressed during Ten-Minute Math. When making arrays, make connections to related numbers as ways to find other
factors for the given multiple, for example, doubling, halving, divisibilty, odd/even. The addition and subtraction in 4.N.12 is practiced and reinforced during Student
Activity Book (SAB) practice, as well as, 4.N.10. During Inv. 1 when looking for patterns in the arrays, finding factor pairs, and classifying numbers, make connections
to the Identity and Commutative Properties to cover 4.N.9. For those students who are ready, distributive property can be introduced during the discussions about
using related multiplication combinations to find more difficult combinations. See page 16 in teacher's guide.

Teacher's Notes: Standards 4.N.8 (in addition to the Investigation), 4.P.2, and 4.P.4 are addressed during Ten-Minute Math. During Inv. 2.1, for students who are ready
the associative property, 4.N.9, can be emphasized when discussing related numbers, for example, (2 x 2) x 12 = 48 or 2 x (2 x 12) = 48. During the discussion of
strategies for difficult multiplication combinations (p.62-63) and finding factors and multiples (p. 69-70), ask questions that make connections to related numbers, for
ex. odd, even, prime, composite, divisibility rules, doubling, and halving, and make connections to the inverse operation. The addition and subtraction in 4.N.12 is
practiced and reinforced during Student Activity Book practice, as well as 4.N.10. Standard 4.P.3 can be introduced during the missing factor p. 70 in Inv. 2.3. For
those students who are ready, distributive property can be introduced during the discussions about using related multiplication combinations to find more difficult
combinations. See page 16 in teacher's guide. During Inv. 2 when looking for patterns in the arrays, finding factor pairs, and classifying numbers, make connections
to the identity property to cover 4.N.9.

Teacher Notes: The addition and subtraction in 4.N.12 is practiced and reinforced during Student Activity Book practice, as well as, 4.N.10. Standard 4.P.3 can be
introduced during the missing factor p. 70 in Inv. 2.3. For those students who are ready, distributive property can be introduced during the discussions about using
related multiplication combinations to find more difficult combinations. See p. 16 in teacher's guide. During Inv. 3 when identifying all the factors of a 100 and
multiples of 100 make connections to the Identity property.

simple conversions, 4.M.2. When recording measurements have students record t. same measurement in different ways, e.g. 2 1/4 meters = 2 meters 25 cm =
2.25 meters and 3 1/2 feet = 3 feet 6 inches = 3.5 ft. These differentiations connect to 4.N.3, 4.N.4, 4.N.5, 4.N.6. When exploring Measuring Perimeter make
connections & comparisons b/w area & perimeter. Differentiate by having students find area of a desk, etc. Conference w/ your Computer Lab teacher about
creating a cheat sheet for the LogoPath Activity. See page 151-153. "Measuring Lengths" (SAB p. 7) can be differentiated by having students complete add'l
columns: Simple Unit Conversions, e.g. metric & standard; Record t. same measurement in different ways; Find Area. SAB p. 9 reinforces 4.N.13. Inv. 1.4

Teacher's Notes: Inv. 2.2, Making Polygons, have students record each # (at least 3 different ex.s of t. # of polygons) on separate pieces of paper. In explore &
summary, ask students to count & label t. sides, names, triangles, quadrilaterals, regular vs. nonregular, etc. on each sheet. Differentiate by having students
examine & identify which of their polygons are concave and convex. SAB p. 20, "Names for Polygons" can be summarized using a teacher created
transparency or chart paper posted for each prefix. Students can go around recording all t. terms they found. For those prefixes that are few, challenge
students to search in dictionaries or thesauruses, etc. Summarize the new terms and how they relate to the meaning of the prefix and root words. When
playing "Guess My Rule" with all the shape cards make connections to angle terms, for ex. if a student describes an angle > right angle= obtuse, or < 90
degrees = acute. Use benchmarks at this point to determine angle type. Also, encourage students to go beyond just naming a three-sided polygon as a
triangle, encourage them to use the specific triangle names. Do the same w/ quadrilaterals. SAB p. 25 reinforces 4.N.8, 4.N.11, 4.N.12.

Teacher's Notes: Quick Images (Ten-Minute Math) targets standards 4.N.8, 4.N.9, 4.N.11, 4.P.2. Read the Algebraic Connections on p. 16 of this teacher's
guide regarding the distributive property. Try to make connections that the product/multiple equals the area of the array (4.M.1 & 4.M.2). When creating
Small Arrays for Big Arrays, model how to record the dimensions on the outside of the array, especially if students are posting them on additional sheets of
paper or on the board, record the partial products inside each array. For example, 8 x 9 = (4 x 9) + (4 x 9), so the dimension recorded on the outside of the
array should read 4 + 4. Encourage students to use parentheses when writing their equations for Small Array/Big Array (Inv. 1.3). It clarifies order of
operation for them. Ten-Minute Math, Counting Around the Class, Inv. 1.4, reinforces 4.N.11, 4.P.1, 4.P.2.

Teacher's Notes: Counting Around the Class (Ten-Minute Math) reinforces 4.N.11, 4.P.1, 4.P.2. As you go through the division story problems always try to
identify with students if it is a sharing or grouping division problem. Identify with students how divisor is synonymous with factor and vice versa, as well
as, dividend is to product is to multiple. You may use the nmemonic that the standard notation for division (i.e. the house), is an adaptation of the array for
that problem. Ten-Minute Math, Quick Images, targets standards 4.N.8, 4.N.9, 4.N.11, 4.P.2. Encourage students to use a circle or square to write their
equations for the "Missing Factors/Quotient." Continue to make the connection that the product/multiple equals the area of the array (4.M.1 & 4.M.2).

Notes: Counting Around Class reinforces 4N11, 4P1, 4P2. Connect multiple towers to mathematical expressions, ex. ask How many multiples have we
counted? Multiple 27 is expressed 3 x 9 or 9 multiples of 3 have been counted. Inv. 3.1, when looking at list of multiples of 3 look for patterns, ex. the sum
of digits in the multiples of 3 is always 3, 6, or 9. Therefore, the number is a multiple of 3 or divisible by 3. Apply this same thinking to other numbers when
counting around the room & record multiples. Apply thinking of looking for patterns when creating multiple towers. Touch on measurement (4.M.5) when
students are creating their own multiple towers, measure evenly sized sections. SAB p. 39 & 40 reinforce 4N8 & 4N11. Inv. 3.2 the idea of "Adding a Zero" is
discussed. Use the term "ATTACHING A ZERO" instead, adding a zero will not change the sum. For ex. 4 x 4 = 24 & 40 x 6 = 240, but 24 + 0 is not 240. We
want students to see pattern of attaching zero! Encourage students to make drawings, use grid paper, etc. to show what happens to arrays as we multiply
by 10s. As students become fluent with 2-digit x 1-digit multiplication differentiate & solve 2 x 2 & 3 x 2 multiplication.

Teacher's Notes: Quick Images (Ten-Minute Math) targets standards 4.N.8, 4.N.9, 4.N.11, 4.P.2. For students, who are still struggling seeing the arrays, you
may try drawing in the hash marks along the length and width during, Inv.4.2. Record the products inside the array. Continue to make connections to area.
As students become fluent with 2-digit by 1-digit multiplication differentiate by challenging them to try 2 by 2 and 3 by 2 multiplication. Students who
master doubling and halving may try to experiment with tripling and quadrupling. Ten-Minute Math, Counting Around the Class, reinforces 4.N.11, 4.P.1,
4.P.2. Students who are flexible with using and explaining their strategies for multiplication and division should be exposed to the standard algorithms.
Students compare the standard algorithm for multiplication with partial products/distributive property. If students are not ready for the standard algorithms
they will have additional opportunities to master them during Unit 8: How Many Packages? How Many Groups?

Teacher's Notes: Practicing Place Value reinforces 4N1, 4N2, 4N12, 4P2. While discussing 1/2s & 1/4s show notation w/ symbols & words, for ex. 1/4 of a 4
x 6 rectangle is 6 or 1/4 of 24 = 6 or 1/4 x 24 = 6 or 24/4 = 6, etc. This will reinforce 4N8. Continue this throughout unit. Be aware that the same area ≠
congruent figures. Use Math Note # 3 p. 27 in guide. Inv. 1.1 p. 29, record 1/4 + 3/4 = 4/4 = 1, continue this throughout the unit. SAB p. 2, p. 8, p. 17
reinforce 4.N.12. Standard 4N4 calls for mastery of the following fractions: 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10, 1/12, 1 1/2. Find these fractional parts of wholes
when appropriate, for ex. when finding fractions of the 5 x 12 rectangle, 8ths would not work. Continue this throughout the unit. SAB p. 15, differentiate by
having students write an equivalent equation, for example 1/2 of 24 = 24/2 = 1/2 x 24. Be aware of common misconception when adding fractions with
unlike denominators (ex. 1/2 + 2/6 ¹ 3/8). Use models to clarify why this doesn't work. During Inv. 1.7, More or Less Than 1? encourage students to write
inequalities using the > & < signs when deciding, for ex. 1/2 + 3/4 > 1, etc., this will continue to extend 4P2.

Teacher's Notes: Quick Survey reinforces 4D1, 4D2, & 4D3. In Inv. 2.1, Fractions > 1, encourage students to write inequalities using the > & < signs, for ex.
1/2 + 3/6 + 4/8 > 1, etc. This will cont. to extend 4P2. ALERT! SAB P. 26, FOR THIS UNIT IS PRINTED INCORRECTLY, IT SHOULD SHOW 1 WHOLE
RECTANGLE w 3/4 SHADED OF ANOTHER. GIVE STUDENTS A COPY OF t. TEACHER'S MASTER P. 19 OR HAVE STUDENTS MAKE t. CORRECTION IN
THEIR BOOKS. SAB p.28, p.34, reinforces 4N12, differentiation may be done by having students do simple conversions (4.M.2). When comparing fractions
for ordering, create a list of student strategies, for ex., "One piece missing" compare t. size of t. missing piece. The smaller t. piece, t. larger the fraction.
With "like denominators" compare numerators, etc. Begin this strategy chart w/ Missing Piece & it leave posted to add to in the future. When playing
"Capture Fractions", Students can differentiate by recording the expressions & equations using the > & < symbols, for ex. 2/3 < 1 3/4, etc. On SAB p. 38,
encourage students to use the > and < symbols as opposed to just circling. SAB p. 40 reinforces 4.N.10 & 4.N.12.

Teacher's Notes: Practicing Place Value (Ten-Minute Math) reinforces 4.N.1, 4.N.6, and 4.N.12. SAB p. 46 , p. 49 reinforce 4.N.12. During Inv. 3.2, "Decimal
Compare" differentiate by having students record the fraction notation for each decimal card. During Inv. 3.3, "Fill Two", differentiate by having students
record the equivalent fraction equations for example, 0.45 + 0.1 + 0.35 = 0.9, similarly, 45/100 + 1/10 + 35/100 = 9/10, this extends to 4.N.18. With SAB p. 55
& 59 encourage students to use the greater than, less than, or equal to symbols as opposed to circling the greater decimal. SAB p. 60 reinforces 4.N.12,
4.N.17, 4.N.10.

Notes: 10-Minute Math covers 4P2 & 4N12 with writing, solving equations, addition, and subtraction. When having students describe the shape of date they should
use correct terminology, as opposed to referring to "bumps, clumps, & holes", mathematicians prefer "mean, median, mode, outlier, range, frequency, and typical."
SAB p. 1 targets 4N11. Prior to start of Inv. 1.2, consider a mini-lesson on proper use of measuring tools. Another form of differentiation may be to use
measurements to the nearest whole in. or 1/2 in. through the height data collection. Inv. 1.2 & 1.3 students who are ready may convert inches to feet (4M2) as a form
of differentiation. In session 1.3, please consider the sensitivity around the HW "How Many Cavities?" You may substitute w/ a more appropriate question since
you will need data for the assessment in Inv. 1.5 or use the one provided in the M pages. When comparing heights, Inv. 1.4, have students represent data in more
than one way as a form of differentiation. Daily practice p 8 & 9 in SAB cover 4N11 & 4P2. SAB p. 29 reinforces 4N11, 4N12.

Teacher's Notes: Ten Minute Math covers 4.P.2 and 4.N.12 with writing, solving equations, addition, and subtraction. When students are playing Broken calculator,
make connections to expanded notation (4.N.2). Students may represent their data in more than one way as a form of differentiation and may write several
statements describing and comparing their data in detail. Teachers need to be attentive to the various typs of survey questions student create for their assessment,
e.g. students may develop numerical questions around measurement. Be aware of the measurement standards that survey question connects with. SAB p. 18, 19
supports 4.N.11. Page 22 of the daily practice in the SAB reinforces 4.N.13; p. 23, 24, 36 reinforces 4.N.11.

Notes: Closest Estimate (Ten Minute Math) addresses 4N1, 4N2, 4N11, 4N16, 4N17. Inv. 2.1, Share Representations, connects to order of operations when
writing expressions, ex. 4 + (6 x 9). SAB p. 14, 29, 49, 55 reinforces 4N10, 4N14. Inv. 2.2, Start with 2 & Add 3, have students express rules in oral, written, &
symbolic expression. Continue this throughout the unit. When creating tables consider the zero/starting round. It will come up in Inv.2.4. SAB p. 19, 48
reinforces 4N13. 10-Min. Math Quick Survey reinforces 4D1, 4D2, 4D3. Inv. 2.3, Round 20, record the most efficient arithmetic expression in the calculation
column, refer to it as an arithmetic expression, connect to order of operations. In this unit introduce the term method, use synonmously with strategy. SAB
p. 24 reinforces 4N14. During Inv. 2.4, Matching Tables & Graphs, emphasize the reasonableness of connecting the pts, refer to T.N. #1 on pg. 70. Inv.2.5,
Single & Double Tower, consider extending the rule to floors 20 & 100 .
For students who struggle with keeping track of the number of windows, a suggestion is to insert an extra column for writing the arithmetic expressions,
just like the calculation column in Round 20. SAB p.38 reinforces 4N17, 4N14.

Teacher's Notes: Ten-Minute Math, Closest Estimate, reinforces 4.N.1, 4.N.2, 4.N.11, 4.N.16, 4.N.17. StandardS 4.N.12 and 4.N.14 expect students to master 3 by 2 digit
multiplication. Differentiate 'Closest Estimate' to include these types of problems. SAB p. 2 and 16 reinforce 4.N.12 & 4.N.14. When solving 2 by 2 digit multiplication make
connections to the distributive property, order of operations, and array models to help studenSt make sense of the partial products. When students are drawing arrays for
their multiplication problems encourage those who are struggling to use their grid paper as well as drawing the abstract representations. We want students to be able to
draw the abstract models without all the square units. SAB p. 7 reinforces 4.N.8, 4.N.11, 4.N.12, 4.N.14, 4.N.17. SAB p. 10 reinforces 4.N.12 & 4.N.14. Ten-Minute Math,

Teacher's Notes: Ten-Minute Math in Inv. 3.1 reinforces place value (standards 4.N.1, 4.N.6, 4.N.12). SAB p. 36, reinforces 4.N.18.; p. 37, 43 reinforces
standards 4.N.6 and 4.P.2. Ten-Minute Math in Inv. 3.2 reinforces place value (standards 4.N.6, 4.N.12). When completing the activity "Doubling the Number
of Cubes" Student Activity Sheet p. 47, consider your students who are ready for this and those who are not, also, consider recording the doubling results
on a chart so that students can easily follow the change or pattern, 4.P.1. Student Activity Sheet p. 49 reinforces standards 4.N.3, 4.N.4 & 4.N.10.

                    Exhibit an understanding of the base ten number system by reading, modeling, writing, and interpreting whole numbers to at least
         4.N.1      100,000; demonstrating an understanding of the values of the digits; and comparing and ordering the numbers.
         4.N.3      Demonstrate an understanding of fractions as parts of unit wholes, as parts of a collection, and as locations on the number line.
                    Select, use, and explain models to relate common fractions and mixed numbers (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10, 1/12, and 11/2), find
         4.N.4      equivalent fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals, and order fractions.
                    Identify and generate equivalent forms of common decimals and fractions less than one whole (halves, quarters, fifths, and tenths).
         4.N.5
                    Exhibit an understanding of the base ten number system by reading, naming, and writing decimals between 0 and 1 up to the hundredths.
         4.N.6
                    Select and use appropriate operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) to solve problems, including those
        4.N.10      involving money.
                    Know multiplication facts through 12 x 12 and related division facts. Use these facts to solve related multiplication problems and compute
        4.N.11      related problems, e.g., 3 x 5 is related to 30 x 50, 300 x 5, and 30 x 500.
        4.N.12      Add and subtract (up to five-digit numbers) and multiply (up to three digits by two digits) accurately and efficiently.
                    Divide up to a three-digit whole number with a single-digit divisor (with or without remainders) accurately and efficiently.
        4.N.13      Interpret any remainders.
        4.N.18      Use concrete objects and visual models to add and subtract common fractions.
                    Demonstrate an understanding of such attributes as length, area, weight, and volume, and select the appropriate type of unit for measuring
        4.M.1       each attribute.
                    Estimate and find area and perimeter of a rectangle, triangle, or irregular shape using diagrams, models, and grids or by measuring.
        4.M.4
                    Compare and analyze attributes and other features (e.g., number of sides, faces, corners, right angles, diagonals, and symmetry) of two- and
         4.G.1      three-dimensional geometric shapes.
                    Describe, model, draw, compare, and classify two- and three-dimensional shapes, e.g., circles, polygons—especially triangles and
         4.G.2      quadrilaterals—cubes, spheres, and pyramids.
         4.G.3      Recognize similar figures.
                    Describe and apply techniques such as reflections (flips), rotations (turns), and translations (slides) for determining if two shapes are
        4.G.7       congruent.
         4.G.9      Predict and validate the results of partitioning, folding, and combining two- and three-dimensional shapes.
