MAFS.4.NBT.1.3

Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
General Information
Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 4
Domain-Subdomain: Number and Operations in Base Ten
Cluster: Level 1: Recall
Cluster: Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers. (Major Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

Kudos for Kicks - MEA:

In this MEA, students will work in collaborative groups to solve multi-step problems with whole numbers and decimals by using different mathematical operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication. The students will be asked to assist a discount shoe store owner, who is planning a one day sale promotion, to choose a famous brand sneaker to feature for the one day sale. Students will determine which one will bring in more customers, as well as provide the most profit. Students will need to read a data table, rank the famous brand sneakers from 1-6, calculate the total profit margin per pair, and the total sales potential profit margin determined by the number of sneakers in stock. A twist is added to the problem when additional stock items are added, plus one of the brands is removed and two new brands are added.

We All Scream for ICE CREAM - MEA:

In this MEA, students will work in collaborative groups to solve multi-step problems with whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percent by using different mathematical operations. The students will be asked to assist an ice cream shop owner, who is planning a promotional program "Flavor of the Month," to rank the ice cream flavors based on the data provided. Students will need to read a data table, rank the flavors, convert the fraction amount to a percent and decimal and per serving costs to a decimal as well. A twist is added to the problem when one of the flavors is too expensive to make because of seasonal availability but two new flavors are added to be calculated. An additional twist is given by adding an adult survey to the second data table. The students will need to recalculate the new percent and decimals for the additional flavors.
