What`s Going On in Math, Science, and Health 

Math: Chapter 14 Geometry

Students will:

*draw points, lines, line segments, rays, parallel , intersecting, and perpendicular lines and identify these in two-dimensional figures

*understand concepts of angles and angle measurement

*use concepts of angle measurement to classify angles

*use a protractor to measure and draw angles to the nearest degree

*solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real-world and mathematical situations

*classify triangles based on angle measure and describe triangles using their attributes

*classify quadrilaterals using their attributes

*identify figures with line symmetry and draw lines of symmetry

 

 At the beginning of each chapter, students will receive a family letter that will give you an overview of the chapter concepts and various strategies that will be used in class. 

 

Please continue to practice basic addition and multiplication facts. Students who can recall from memory basic addition facts are much more successful. Helping your child memorize these facts, rather than counting on fingers, will be most beneficial. Also, fourth graders are expected to have basic multiplication facts committed to memory.  

 

 

Science:  Life Cycles

Students will demonstrate an understanding of life cycles, including familiar plants and animals.
