In Math 4 A, the student will learn mathematical concepts that are organized according to the following categories: number and operations, algebra, and geometry. Within each category, concepts are developed through the mathematical processes of problem-solving, reasoning, communication, connections, and representations. Building both conceptual knowledge and procedural fluency supports the students development of mathematical thinking and reasoning in solving various problems of authentic contexts. The Scott Foresman and Addison Wesley series textbook, enVisionMATH, is the primary resource for this course.The topics that are presented in this semester build upon the concepts that the student previously learned. The student will use his understanding of number concepts to extend the place value of whole numbers into the millions. Basic facts will be used to compute with greater numbers. The student will investigate the concept of numbers through patterns and relationships by translation between a table of values and an algebraic expression.
