Math Mammoth Grade 4 Complete Curriculum is a complete math program for 4th grade that is aligned to the Common Core Standards. It consists of two student worktexts (A and B), a separate answer key for each, tests, cumulative reviews, and an additional worksheet maker (Internet access required) to make extra practice worksheets when needed.

In the fourth grade, students focus on multi-digit multiplication and division, learning to use bigger numbers, solving multi-step word problems that involve several operations, and they get started in studying ,b>fractions and decimals. This is of course accompanied by studies in geometry and measuring.

The year starts out with a review of addition and subtraction, patterns, and graphs. We illustrate word problems with bar diagrams and study finding missing addends, which teaches algebraic thinking. Children also learn addition and subtraction terminology, the order of operations, and statistical graphs.

Next come large numbers—up to millions, and the place value concept. At first the student reviews thousands and some mental math with them. Next are presented numbers up to one million, calculations with them, the concept of place value and comparing. In the end of the chapter we find out more about millions and an introduction to multiples of 10, 100, and 1000.

The third chapter is all about multiplication. After briefly reviewing the concept and the times tables, the focus is on learning multi-digit multiplication (multiplication algorithm). The children also learn why it works when they multiply in parts. We also study the order of operations again, touch on proportional reasoning, and do more money and change related word problems.

The last chapter in part A is about time, temperature, length, weight, and volume. Students will learn to solve more complex problems using various measuring units and to convert between measuring units.

In part B, we first study division. The focus is on learning long division and using division in word problems. In geometry, we first review area and perimeter, and then concentrate on the topic of angles. Students measure and draw angles, solve simple angle problems, and classify triangles according to their angles. They also study parallel and perpendicular lines.

Fractions and decimals are presented last in the school year. These two chapters practice only some of the basic operations with fractions and decimals. The focus is still on conceptual understanding and on building a good foundation towards 5th grade math, where fractions and decimals will be in focus.

When you use these books as your only or main mathematics curriculum, they can be like a "framework," but you do have some liberty in organizing the study schedule. Chapters 1, 2, and 3 should be studied in this order, but you can be flexible with chapters 4 (Time and Measuring) and 6 (Geometry) and schedule them somewhat earlier or later if you so wish. Chapter 3 (Multiplication) needs to be studied before long division in Chapter 5. Many topics from chapters 7 and 8 (Fractions and Decimals) can also be studied earlier in the school year; however finding parts with division should naturally be studied only after mastering division.

Please also see the table of contents for 4-A and 4-B (in the sample files), which will let you see the topics covered in more detail.

Some main features of Math Mammoth complete curriculum (Light Blue series) are:

  • focuses on understanding of mathematical concepts
  • uses clear explanations, lots of visual exercises and pattern exercises
  • mastery oriented: concentrates fairly long on a topic, with fairly few topics per grade
  • emphasizes mental math and developing number sense
  • very little teacher preparation needed

Additional features

This downloadable product includes a worksheet maker (Internet access required) that lets you make extra practice worksheets for many of the topics in the curriculum.

The PDFs in the download are enabled for annotation. This means that if you prefer, your student can fill them in on the computer, using the typewriter and drawing tools in Acrobat Reader version 9 or greater.

Manipulatives

Here is a list of manipulatives that are needed or recommended for grade 4. Measuring tapes are only used in the measuring chapter.

  1. A ruler that measures in inches (for 4-A and 4-B).
  2. A ruler that measures in centimeters (for 4-A and 4-B).
  3. A measuring tape that measures in feet (for 4-A).
  4. A measuring tape that measures in meters (for 4-A).

This is a very comprehensive package complete with tests, review sheets and a full set of answers for those days when you really don't have time to work out the answers for yourself to score your child's work! It's not as "exciting" as some [...]

This is our fourth year using Math Mammoth and we love it. The teaching text means that the instruction in included in the flow of the problems. I find that it's good to go over the concepts with my son, although the older he gets the more self-teachin [...]

This math is hard and confusing to both me and my son, and I have a college degree!! I thought maybe we just needed to take some time to get into the groove of this very different approach but we have yet to catch on. My son, whose favorite subject use [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
