I kind of don't have a unit for teaching data analysis and graphing. Technically, I do have one (here it is), but I don't teach it lesson by lesson. Instead, I try to incorporate the graphing lessons within my other math units. The reason I do this isn't because of some profound

## Teaching the Concept of Division

Division can be a tricky and confusing concept for many students. When I was teaching 3rd grade, this was the unit when a large group of students would begin to fall behind. There are so many potential reasons for this struggle: lack of number sense, multiplication facts, and not

## Multiply Fractions by Whole Numbers

When you throw the terms "multiply" and "fractions" in the same standard, it can sound a bit daunting. Fortunately, if students have a sound understanding of multiplication and fractions, this is somewhat natural for students. This post includes some of my favorite lessons for

## Add and Subtract Fractions

Adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators typically isn't introduced until fifth grade, so this concept isn't too difficult for fourth graders. The most common mistake is for students to add or subtract the denominator, because they aren't thinking about the

## Comparing Fractions

This post includes some of my favorite lessons for teaching students to compare fractions with strategies such as: common numerator, common denominator, benchmark numbers, the missing piece, and equivalent fractions. The goal of the lessons is to help students develop concepts of

## Equivalent Fractions

The next portion of my Fraction Unit involves equivalent fractions. As students develop their fraction number sense, they typically come to the realization that some same-size fractions have different names. This gives a natural transition to teaching equivalent

## Fractions on a Number Line

This post highlights four of my favorite lessons for teaching fractions on a number line. These are lessons I use with my fourth grade students. When I was teaching third grade, I used very similar lessons and incorporated a bit more practice. You can read more about third grade

## Lessons for Teaching Fraction Concepts (in person and digitally)

In this post I've shared some of my favorite lessons for teaching fraction concepts (face-to-face and digitally). These lessons are designed to introduce fractions in a conceptual and meaningful way that doesn't overly rely on rules or procedures.
Most of these lessons can be

## Teaching Multi-Digit Multiplication

Teaching multi-digit multiplication is a major component of fourth grade math. Before teaching this unit there are many concepts that are essential for student success. You can read more about those lessons here. You can think of those lessons as transitional lessons that aren't

## Lessons to Teach BEFORE Introducing Multi-Digit Multiplication

Most curriculums and textbooks make a lot of assumptions. That's especially true in math. For instance, in fourth grade, students jump right in to multiplying a 4-digit number by a one-digit whole number and then multiplying 2-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers. Years of experience
