# Grade 4 - Fractions

### Math News YOU Can Use - from Jacqueline Burns

This webinar includes lots of hands-on modeling of how to allow students to develop conceptual understandings of fractions. We also focus on TKES standards 3, 4, 5, and 6. And of course, the SMPs are essential in every math PL.

## Common Core Math Standards in This Unit

**4NF Understand decimal notation for fractions and compare decimal fractions.**

**MCC4.NF.5** Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two factions with respective denominators 10 and 100. *For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100. *

**Possible Activities:**

**MCC4.NF.6** Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. * Fox example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram*.

**Possible Activities:**

**MCC4.NF.7** Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of the comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g. by using a visual model.
