Year 4 Maths Worksheets at URBrainy
We are still working hard here and you will be pleased to hear that we now have over 100 new year 4 maths worksheet sets. That equates to over 600 worksheets covering all areas of year 4 maths (that’s children aged 8 – 9) including:
In Year 4 children will continue to work with number patterns, counting on and back in steps of constant size. Being able to partition numbers is important as is understanding negative numbers. Money and measurement are two great subjects for learning about numbers with up to two decimal places. Ratio and proportion are introduced for the first time and calculators begin to play an important part in solving problems.
Having a good knowledge of adding pairs of single digit numbers now leads on to adding pairs of multiples of 10, 100 or 1000. Plenty of practice is still needed with adding two or three small numbers, leading towards the end of the year to adding 2-digit numbers mentally. Written methods of addition are explained, including adding decimals, working towards the use of the standard written method, which we all recognise and love!
Finding the difference between pairs of multiples of 10, 100 and 1000 as well as subtracting from whole 1000s are introduced in Year 4. Children are expected to use their knowledge to rapidly subtract single digit numbers as well as taking away 2-digit numbers. Written subtraction is introduced, including crossing the tens and hundreds boundaries, in preparation for using the standard written method.
Children will continue to practise doubling and use this to double multiples of 10 and 100. This is really the learning tables year, and by the end of the year all tables up to 10 x 10 should be known ‘off by heart’ (e.g. say a whole table in around 12 seconds). Written methods of multiplication are also developed, but not yet the standard method.
Children should be able to divide numbers up to 1000 by 10 or 100 (whole buy generic ambien online no prescription number answers) and understand the effect of this. Written methods of division of 2-digits by 1-digit are developed, including writing remainders as fractions. Calculators are also used to help with understanding division. Understanding simple equivalent fractions, at first by using diagrams, is very important this year. Children will also be expected to order fractions and mixed numbers on a number line and find pairs of fractions which total one.
As children become more accurate with their drawing great fun can be had with 2D and 3D shape work. Polygons are drawn and classified and nets of 3D shapes are introduced. Lines of symmetry, as well as reflections and translations are introduced. Children will be expected to know that angles are measured in degrees and they will begin to compare and order angles.
There is a lot of emphasis on measurement during Year 4. Greater accuracy is expected when measuring and recording length, weight and capacity. Children will know the meaning of ‘kilo’, ‘centi’ and ‘milli’ and record results using decimals. Reading scales where divisions are only partially recorded becomes trickier and, of course, children should become proficient with reading the time on analogue and digital clocks.
Collecting, sorting and organising data becomes more sophisticated in Year 4, with the use of pictograms, bar charts and graphs. Interpreting results of surveys is important, with children making simple and sensible predictions about what might happen if the survey was taken in slightly different circumstances.
This category is all about children choosing the most appropriate method to achieve a quick and accurate answer and to be able to explain their methods and reasoning. Problem solving involves measures, shape, time and money. Children should be able to read and understand the problem, see what processes are needed to solve it and lay out their working and answers clearly.
These great maths worksheets will really help you help your child and allow them to improve and enjoy their maths.
