4th Grade Math Measurement and Data -
The fourth grade Common Core Math Standards for Measurement and Data cover three main subtopics. These include:
- Solving problems that involve measuring and converting measurements between different units. For example convert meters, into centimeters, or ounces into pounds.
- Representing and Interpreting Data. This includes showing data on line plots.
- Geometric measurements of angles. Students will learn what angles are, how to measure angles, and how to find an unknown angle by adding or subtracting related angles.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.A.1|Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.
Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.A.2|Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.

Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.B.4 | Represent and interpret data.
Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.C.5 | Geometric measurement: understand concepts of area and relate area to multiplication and to addition.
Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement:
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.C.6 | Geometric measurement: understand concepts of area and relate area to multiplication and to addition.
Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.C.7 | Geometric measurement: understand concepts of area and relate area to multiplication and to addition.
Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.
