4th Grade Learning Progression (v2)

Welcome to the new progression for 4th Grade. This progression builds upon Math Framework Project Phase 1 work (see Progression v1 here), taking many of the best features and building in an Overarching Question, Essential Questions, and Big Ideas for each unit. This new model takes the work of bundling standards to the next level by grouping together grade level concepts under Big Ideas. The Big Ideas are designed to represent the critical mathematics of this grade level in a manner we believe to be more coherent and productive as a guide for planning instruction, assessment, and intervention. Big Ideas are not a replacement for the objectives.
Click on the unit numbers below to see essential understandings, student activities, and suggested sequencing.
The use of an asterisk (*) indicates an objective is repeated in another unit or an objective that is partially taught in a unit and will be taught in its entirety in a later unit. The parts of the objective that will be taught in a later unit is indicated by the “strikethroughs.” Occasionally, new words are added to the objective to ensure the objective still makes sense considering the strikethroughs.

Overarching Question

Full Objectives

Unit 0:
Growth Mindset

How does improving student attitudes toward math affect their learning? 

BIG IDEA 1: Math is about learning not performing.
BIG IDEA 2: Math is about making sense.
BIG IDEA 3: Math is filled with conjectures, creativity, and uncertainty.
BIG IDEA 4: Mistakes are beautiful things.

 Students will understand the importance of a growth mindset (e.g., that math is not about talent or natural ability but is about thoughtful practice) and what it means to talk and listen. Students will also understand that class is where students practice thinking and doing math.
 Students will learn the value of taking time to think about math and listen to how others make sense of their work to arrive at a common understanding.
 Students will build the habits of using precise language, practicing, and sharing their thoughts.
