Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems
4.OA.A.1 Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 x 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
4.OA.A.2 Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
Word Problems: Multiplicative Comparison
4.OA.A.3 Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.

Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers
4.NBT.A.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700÷70=10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering
why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (nxa)/(nxb) by using
visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the
parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same
size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.

Equivalent Fractions: Dominoes
Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions
4.NF.C.5 Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.
