    Writing: Opinion Writing

    Students will state their opinion and use reasons and evidence to support it.   

    • Students will explore the writing process by recognizing and understanding the five steps. (Prewriting, Drafting, Revising, Editing, and Publishing)

     

    Go Math!:

    Chapter 11: Students will measure angles.

    • Identify and draw parallel lines and perpendicular lines
    • Sort and classify quadrilaterals
    • Identify and draw lines of symmetry
    • Relate angles and fractional parts of a circle
    • Use a protractor to measure and draw an angle
    • Determine the measure of an angle separated into parts
    • Use the strategy draw a diagram to solve angle measurement problems

    Chapter 12: Students will use relative sizes of measurement units.

    • Use benchmarks to understand the relative sizes of measurement units
    • Use models to compare customary units of length, weight, and liquid volume
    • Make and interpret line plots with fractional data
    • Use models to compare metric units of length and mass and liquid volume
    • Use models to compare units of time Use the strategy draw a diagram to solve elapsed time problems
    • Solve problems involving mixed measures

    Common Core Learning Standards:

    4.MD.C.5a - An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a "one-degree angle," and can be used to measure angles.

    4.MC.C.5b - An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees.

    4.MD.C.6 - Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.

    4.MD.C.7 - Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.

    4.MD.A.1 - Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ...

    4.MD.A.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.

    4.MD.B.4 - Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and shortest specimens in an insect collection.
