Course Description:  4th Grade Math

 

The “4th Grade Math” video course covers all of the content students need to complete successfully 4th Grade level math.  Furthermore, you will have an understanding of the applications of the basic operations featured herein.  Not only will you understand what a fraction is, but you will also understand why we need them. 

The course is not divided up into units, by comprises a natural progression of lessons, beginning with the basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), and then investigates the variety of appearances that these operations can take.  That is, we investigate estimating products, dividing several digit numbers, adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions and mixed numbers.

The Common Core is the skeleton of this course.  Such topics represented include classification of triangles, standard measurement in the metric system, and fractions.  Additionally, this course features a discussion of temperature measurement systems, an explanation of time intervals and how to tell time, as well as well as why we need play close attention to representing units properly when performing certain operations.  

The advantages of this course are thoroughness and close consideration of mathematical applications.  Too often, elementary education features only examples with facile solutions.  This is not true of 4th Grade Math; we make connection between operations, compare different ways of representing the same number, and generally bring a growth mindset to the learning process.  It is especially important for a child to have a strong foundation in math, and that foundation starts here.  Building that foundation involves practice.  To that end, this course provides worksheets and reference material to accompany each lesson.  Homework instructions are given within the video, and the student is encouraged to practice on his or her own after each lesson.

 

This Course Includes:

  • 30 UNITS
  • 60 VIDEO-LESSONS (INCLUDING LESSON REVIEW)
  • 30 WORKSHEETS
  • OVER 300 PROBLEMS
  • 30 EXERCISE REVIEW VIDEOS (in which I explain step by step how to reach the correct answer)
  • SEVERAL ADDITIONAL RESOURCES (INCLUDING GEOMETRY AND MATHEMATICAL REFERENCE MATERIAL)
  • OVER 10+ HOURS OF VIDEO INSTRUCTION

 

Course Goals:

The goals of this course are to make students comfortable representing non-integers as decimals and fractions, and manipulating integers and non-integers with the four base algebraic operations.  Students should also be able to measure space using diagrams, and solve equations using measurements of distance, weight, and time.

 

Target Audience:

This course is intended for students  between the age of 8-10 (viz. those entering fourth grade).  However, the material is appropriate for any elementary to early-middle school students, and general math enthusiasts.

 

Course Requirements:

There are no explicit requirements for this course; however, students will progress with greater ease with a basic understanding of numbers and counting (i.e. “7” can represent “a group of seven things”).
