Math Mammoth Grade 4 International Version is a complete maths program (curriculum) for 4th grade mathematics studies. 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.


This curriculum is essentially the same as the US version of Math Mammoth Grade 4. The program is customised for the international audience in these aspects: The curriculum teaches the metric measurement units. Imperial units, such as inches and pounds, are not taught. The spelling conforms to British international standards (British English). It is formatted to be printed on A4-sized paper. Large numbers are formatted with a space as the thousands separator (such as 12 394). (The decimals are formatted with a decimal point, like in the US version.)


In money-related word problems, the symbol  it uses is "$" (dollar).


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 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 1 000.


The third chapter is all about multiplication. After briefly revising 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 metric measuring units and to convert between some metric 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 revise 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 practise 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 maths, 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.


Some main features of Math Mammoth complete curriculum (Light Blue series) are: it focuses on understanding of mathematical concepts; it uses clear explanations, lots of visual exercises and pattern exercises; it is mastery oriented: concentrates fairly long on a topic, with very few topics per grade; emphasizes mental maths and developing number sense; and it requires very little teacher preparation.

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.
