Students in 4th grade are expanding their number sense to include fractions and decimals as well as building fluency with operations. They are ready to build foundations for algebraic thinking as well as geometric reasoning.

Wixie's Curriculum library includes a range of math-focused templates you can use for formative assessment purposes or to support student thinking as they tackle complex math tasks in your classroom.

Teachers can assign Wixie activities directly to students, or customize to differentiate them for specific learners in their classroom. Written and voice instructions for students show in the Wixie interface. You can also ask students to record their voice to explain their mathematical thinking.

# Math Standards

Here are a few examples of the types of templates you will find in Wixie for specific math learning targets.

## Use place value and properties of operations to solve problems.

Assign templates like these to get students to apply number sense and understanding of place value to solve problems using the properties of operations.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Numbers and Operations > Computation folders.

You can also find these using the search field at the top with keywords such as: multiplication, factors, and operations.

## Order, compare, and decompose fractions and decimals.

Assign templates like these to get students to practice and apply newfound knowledge of fractions and decimals.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Numbers and Operations > and then the Numbers/Computation/Fractions folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keywords such as: decimal and fraction.

## Generate and analyze patterns.

Assign templates like these to get students to play with patterning and build algebraic thinking.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Algebra > Patterns folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with the keyword: pattern.

## Measure angles, area, and perimeter.

Assign templates like these to get students to work with measurement. Wixie also includes a range of grid templates and virtual measuring tools such as rulers and protractors.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Measurement folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keywords like: area, perimeter, time, length, and measurement.

## Identify and draw lines of symmetry.

Assign templates like these to get students to recognize lines of symmetry and use mirror symmetry for design and artistic purposes. Click here for additional ideas for using Wixie to explore line symmetry.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Geometry folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keyword: symmetry.

## Classify shapes by their properties.

Assign templates like these to get students to evaluate your students geometric reasoning. Students can also use Wixie's paint tools to create shapes that follow geometric rules you have specified.

At your Wixie home page, open the Templates folder to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Geometry folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keyword: shape, classify, and sort.

## Represent and interpret data.

Assign templates like these to get students to represent and interpret data through bar, plot, and line graphs. Wixie also includes a range of math templates like number lines and coordinate planes.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Data Analysis > Graphing folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keyword: graph, data, and probability.

## Open-ended Math Projects

Wixie is way more than a template tool. With Wixie, students can write, draw, and record to demonstrate their mathematical understanding and comprehension in creative ways. For example, students can capture images of math in the real world, write math stories, and create math designs that use measurement and geometry.

Explore creative math lessons that get fourth-grade learners making and applying their math knowledge.
