What does numerical reasoning involve and what does it demonstrate about God’s world?
Numerical reasoning with whole numbers and fractions demonstrates dependability and order in God’s world.
Use place value understanding of multi-digit whole numbers to round to any place up to millions. (4.NBT.1,3)
Read, write, compare, and understand whole numbers using standard, number name, and expanded forms. (4.NBT.2)
Add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers; multiply up to 4 digits X 1 digit and 2 digits X 2 digits; divide using a one-digit divisor and up to a four-digit dividend with and without a remainder. (4.NBT.4,5,6)
Understand, express, and order fractions with different numerators and denominators; numerically express equivalent fractions. (4.NF.1,2)
Add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with common denominators; multiply fractions by whole numbers. (4.NF.3,4)
Understand, compare, and use decimal notation for fractions with denominators of 10 or 100. (4.NF.5,6,7)
How do numerical patterns link us to an infinite God?
Exploring numerical patterns through problem solving links us to an infinite God by demonstrating His order and constancy.
Memorize and fluently multiply using the multiplication facts through 12.
Solve multi-step word problems including remainder interpretation and estimate to check; create equations with a letter for the unknown. (4.OA.1,2,3)
Find all factor pairs for a whole number within 100; identify whole numbers as prime or composite. (4.OA.4)
Understand the basic concepts of least common multiple (LCM) and greatest common factor (GCF).
Generate and analyze number and shape patterns. (4.OA.5)
What do the attributes of measurement reveal about God?
The attributes of measurement reveal God’s accuracy, dependability, and precision.
Solve problems involving measurement (time, volume, mass, money, simple fractions, decimals, distance). (4.MD.2)
Convert measurement from a larger unit to a smaller unit (km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz; L, mL; hr, min, sec). (4.MD.1)
Apply area and perimeter formulas. (4.MD.3)
Read a Fahrenheit and Celsius thermometer knowing the significance of 32°F, 212°F, 0°C, and 100°C.
Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common end point; understand concepts of angle measurement and measure angles in whole-number degrees. (4.MD.5,6,7)
Know how to count up to make change.
What does geometry reveal about God?
God is revealed as the Master Designer when geometry is used as a means of describing the attributes of the physical world.
Draw and identify points, lines, line segments, rays, angles, and perpendicular and parallel lines. (4.G.1)
Classify figures with perpendicular and parallel lines, and angles of a specified size. (4.G.2)
Recognize and draw lines of symmetry with two-dimensional figures. (4.G.3)
How can we quantify our findings in a way that pleases God?
God has at various times commanded men to count, measure, and record their findings.
Solve addition and subtraction problems using a line plot to display a data set of measurement in fractions of a unit (halves, fourths, and eighths). (4.MD.4)
