CCGPS Mathematics Unit-by-Unit Grade Level Webinar Fourth GradeUnit 1: Whole Numbers, Place Value, and Rounding in Computation May 9, 2012 Session will be begin at 3:15 pm While you are waiting, please do the following: Configure your microphone and speakers by going to: Tools – Audio – Audio setup wizard Document downloads: When you are prompted to download a document, please choose or create the folder to which the document should be saved, so that you may retrieve it later.
Clearing up confusion• This webinar focuses on CCGPS content specific to one grade leveland one unit within that grade.• For information about CCGPS across a single grade span, pleaseaccess the list of recorded GPB sessions on Georgiastandards.org.• For information about the Standards for Mathematical Practice,please access the list of recorded Blackboard sessions from Fall2011 on GeorgiaStandards.org.• CCGPS is taught and assessed from 2012-2013 and beyond.• A list of resources will be provided at the end of this webinar andthis list has also been included in your document downloads.

Welcome!• Thank you for taking the time to join us in thisdiscussion of Unit 1.• At the end of today’s session you should have at least 3takeaways: The big idea of Unit 1 Something to think about… food for thought How might I prepare for the start of school next year? What is my conceptual understanding of the material in this unit? a list of resources and support available for CCGPS mathematics
• Please provide feedback at the end of today’s session. Feedback helps us all to become better teachers and learners. Feedback helps as we develop the remaining unit-by-unit webinars. Please visit http://ccgpsmathematicsK-5.wikispaces.com/ to share your feedback. This is our “baby”wiki!• After reviewing the remaining units, please contact uswith content area focus/format suggestions for futurewebinars. Wiki, anyone?

Welcome!• For today’s session: Did you read the Fourth Grade mathematics CCGPS? Did you read Fourth Grade Unit One? Make sure you download and save the documents from this session. Ask questions and share resources/ideas for the common good. Join the K-5 wiki. If you are wondering what a wiki is, we’ll discuss this near the end of the session.
Remember, Turtle, give someone a fish and they eat for a day. Teach them to fish and they’ll have no further use for you.

What’s the big idea? Deepen and expand understanding of place value,and its usefulness in estimation and computation.

“Remember that we all climb the hills differently. We takedifferent paths, different steps, and different journeys. Weeach reach landmarks in different ways and at different times.If we push or pull children up the hill and make them practiceour steps, our ways, or, worse yet, drop them by helicopter atpoints of the journey without the climb of getting there, wemay get them up the mountain - but they won’t own it. Theymay reach the vista, but they won’t feel empowered by theclimb. They won’t take on the next hill in the journey. Andmost important, they won’t have learned how to climb, howto mathematize their own lived worlds. If, however, wesupport their steps, work with them as youngmathematicians, the climbs and the vistas and the joys of thejourney will be theirs forever” C. Fosnot

What do Fourth Grade students bring? What are they connecting to later?From 3 to 4 Later• Deep understanding of addition and • Deep understanding of addition and subtraction strategies (within 1000) subtraction, multiplication and division.• Developing understanding of • Useful place value understanding. multiplication and division (products • Understanding of defining attributes within 100) about shape, comparison of shape.• Useful place value understanding. • Foundational fractional relationships,• Understanding of defining attributes fraction operations. about shape, comparison of shape. • Continuation of fluency/algebraic• Foundational fractional relationships. thinking.• Continuation of fluency/algebraic • Measurement/addition/subtraction/ thinking. fraction relationships• Measurement/addition/subtraction • Data analysis relationships• Data analysis
What’s Different in Fourth Grade?Operations and Algebraic Thinking• Classification of counting numbers into subsetsNumber and Operations in Base Ten• Relative magnitude• Rounding to 1,000,000• Fluency in addition and subtraction with standard algorithm- dependent upon all reasoning strategies• Strategy-based divisionNumber and Operations- Fractions• A fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (nxa)/(nxb) (with models!)• Compare fractions using benchmark fractions• Multiply a fraction by a whole number
Critical AreasIn Fourth Grade, instructional time should focus on three critical areas:• Developing understanding and fluency with multi-digit multiplication, and developing understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends• Developing an understanding of fraction equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers• Understanding that geometric figures can be analyzed and classified based on their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures, and symmetry

Phil Daro says:it’s just the easy part to design and write something down.The hard part comes… with putting them to work.And the users have ultimate control over how they’re used.So no matter how well designed the tool is – the user has control.And there you see my granddaughter Sadieusing a well-designed crayon.So , … if all people do, is take out theirold state standards, toss them out, and replace thesecommon core state standards into those old boxesNOTHING IS REALLY GOING TO CHANGEWe designed these as a platform for new kinds of instructional systemsWe didn’t design these to be thrown into the old boxes.The old boxes in fact, are the infrastructure for making things a mile wide, inch deep.
