Essential math skills for 4th graders entering 5th grade high ability math in 2014-2015
To be as successful as possible and make sure we cover 2 years’ worth of math content, students should be able to:
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers using traditional logarithms-no lattice multiplication.
Add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers.
Add and subtract decimals.
Understand place value up to hundred thousand and down to thousandths.
Round and explain the reason behind rounding, not just the mechanics.
The following are a couple of resources to use to review and study these skills. Although I do not expect each student to spend their entire summer vacation working on school related items, I truly believe that math is much like a sport in that if a student took seven weeks off from any type of practice the results would be detrimental to their overall performance. These are merely suggestions and in no way meant to be mandatory summer work.
