Fourth graders are ready for complicated theories, and the practice of mathematics should be tailored to take advantage of their greater understanding at this stage of their development. While decimals were introduced in third grade, along with the concepts of place values for tenths, hundredths, thousandths and beyond, students now need to grasp such advanced notions as rounding decimals, decimal comparison, fractions and start to make the connection between procedural math and real-world math. Students can draw these type of comparisons when you introduce ideas with receipts and interaction with money in real life, or through interactive teaching tools such as 4th grade decimal games. Estimation can be a powerful tool to help children understand how decimals and fractions relate to each other-simply breaking a cookie in half and then in half again and showing students how each piece relates to the whole can be a great visual to support their understanding.
