Description

Eureka Math is a comprehensive, content-rich PreK–12 curriculum that follows the focus and coherence of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) and carefully sequences the mathematical progressions into expertly crafted instructional modules. The companion Study Guides to Eureka Math gather the key components of the curriculum for each grade into a single location, unpacking the standards in detail so that both users and non-users of Eureka Math can benefit equally from the content presented. 

Each of the Eureka Math Curriculum Study Guides includes narratives that provide educators with an overview of what students should be learning throughout the year, information on alignment to the instructional shifts and the standards, design of curricular components, approaches to differentiated instruction, and descriptions of mathematical models.  The Study Guides can serve as either a self-study professional development resource or as the basis for a deep group study of the standards for a particular grade. For teachers who are new to the classroom or the standards, the Study Guides introduce them not only to Eureka Math but also to the content of the grade level in a way they will find manageable and useful.  Teachers familiar with the Eureka Math curriculum will also find this resource valuable as it allows for a meaningful study of the grade level content in a way that highlights the coherence between modules and topics.  The Study Guides allow teachers to obtain a firm grasp on what it is that students should master during the year.

The Eureka Math Curriculum Study Guide, Grade 4 provides an overview of all of the Grade 4 modules, including Place Value, Rounding, and Algorithms for Addition and Subtraction; Unit Conversions and Problem Solving with Metric Measurement; Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division; Angle Measure and Plane Figures; Fraction Equivalence, Ordering, and Operations; Decimal Fractions; and Exploring Measurement with Multiplication.
