## Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Grade(s) 4 resources related to the following standard:
Measurement and Data
Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.
2. Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.

This 75-page pdf document demonstrates the connections between the CCSS content standards and the mathematical practice standards. It is a compilation of research, standards from several states, instructional strategies, common misconceptions, and examples for each standard at the grade 4 level. It is intended to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. Additional flip books are cataloged separately for grades K-3 and 5.
Instructional Strategy, Reference Materials
This web page provides links to resources aligned to the CCSS that guide and support fourth grade mathematics teaching and learning. Tasks developed by the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS) for the Noyce Foundation, Problems of the Month, (POM home page is cataloged separately) and videos of public lessons and number talks developed by the Noyce Foundation are also included. The performance tasks were originally designed to measure students' ability to solve non-routine problems and then to explain and justify their solutions. The task scoring rubric, student responses, and discussion of student understanding and misconceptions are provided to improve instruction. Resources are listed for specific grade 4 standards and are also organized by progression for an alternate search route.

This page provides examples of 4th Grade Measurement and Data activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. A CCSS standard is stated and the possible activities are listed below and linked. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group, or whole class settings and are designed to elicit a range of responses and provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. Instructions for each task are typed in large print and written in child-friendly language to enable students to work on activities independently after a brief introduction to the task. All files for 4th Grade Measurement and Data Activities listed are in PDF format.
Activity
This Java applet provides practice in adding denominations of US coins in the context of a simple turn-taking game of strategy. The game starts with pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters arrayed in a row or loop. One person (or the computer) picks a coin on either end of the chain. Then the computer (or the second person) selects either the new "end" coin or the unchosen one from the previous round. Play proceeds in alternating fashion until no coins remain; the player who collects the greatest dollar amount wins. Click "random numbers" to play the same game with counting numbers in lieu of coins. A discussion of optimal strategies appears below the game.

This Technology Problem of the Week (tPoW) challenges students to compile a spreadsheet that tracks different savings rates across different time spans, and to then use their accounting work to identify the calendar date when those contributions reach the goal of accumulating 1,000,000 pennies. Solve and explain your solution; download hints and answer checks. Also available in Spanish. Free registration is required.
Problem Set
This question and answer service for math students and their teachers offers a searchable archive all about measurement at the elementary level.

In this interactive simulation students use their measurement and measurement conversion skills to prepare the bamzookis for a race. Students measure in metric units and then convert units to compare to measures in English customary units. In the final stage of the activity learners must combine pieces of tracks measured in different metric lengths to construct a track of 100 meters. Included with this activity is background information on measurement and a short quiz.
