4th Grade MULTIPLICATION Standards


4.1 Mathematical process standards. The student uses mathematical processes to acquire and demonstrate mathematical understanding. The student is expected to:

  • B. Use a problem-solving model that incorporates analyzing given information, formulating a plan or strategy, determining a solution, justifying the solution, and evaluating the problem-solving process and the reasonableness of the solution.
  • C. Select tools, including real objects, manipulatives, paper and pencil, and technology as appropriate, and techniques, including mental math, estimation, and number sense as appropriate, to solve problems.
  • D. Communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate.
  • E. Create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas.
  • F. Analyze mathematical relationships to connect and communicate mathematical ideas.
  • G. Display, explain, and justify mathematical ideas and arguments using precise mathematical language in written or oral communication.

Common Core

Operations & Algebraic Thinking:
Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.

  • 4.OA.A.1 Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.

Gain familiarity with factors and multiples.

  • 4.OA.B.A Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1­100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1­100 is a multiple of a given one-­digit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1­100 is prime or composite.
