K-5 CCSS Math Standards
Major Work of Fourth Grade
Not all of the content in a given grade is emphasized equally in the standards. Some clusters require greater emphasis than others based on the depth of the ideas, the time it takes to master,
and/or their importance to future mathematics. Some things have greater emphasis is not to say that anything in the standards can safely be neglected in instruction. Read more to learn about
the Major Work of the Grade.

Fourth Grade Unpacking Document
Updated July 2013
The Unpacking Documents are designed to help North Carolina educators teach the Common Core State Standards (Standard Course of Study). NCDPI staff are continually updating and improving
these tools to be helpful and specific. We believe that as this document is used, teachers and educators will find ways in which the unpacking can be improved and made ever more useful. Based on your feedback, revisions to this document are made on a continual basis.
In order to determine if you have the most
current version, please refer to the date located on the first page of the Unpacking Document.

3-5 Instructional and Assessment Tasks for the CCSS in Mathematics
These state-developed assessment materials are aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and may be adopted or modified as appropriate for individual school districts. This resource is currently in draft form, and additional tasks are being developed. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction appreciates any suggestions and feedback, which will help improve upon this resource.
Lessons for Learning
Selected tasks from the DPI Week-by-Week and Strategies Document rewritten to align to CCSS. This document was created by selecting high leverage tasks from the DPI Week-by-Week and
Strategies for Instruction Documents and rewritten to align to CCSS. These lessons incorporate the Standards for Mathematical Practice to support teachers with the implementation of the content
standards. The intent of this document is not to replace teachers’ resources but be used to support teachers’current resources. Because of the high demand for support materials, a first draft has been posted on the wiki. More of these lessons will be forthcoming. Once additional lessons are written and the documents complete then the documents will be finalized (table of contents, etc…). Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on support materials.

4th Grade Games
Academically and Intellectually Gifted Learners
AIG~IRP provides teachers with instructional resources to challenge their advanced learners. These resources bring together gifted education best practices and standards in Mathematics. Teachers developed these resources in partnership with content and gifted education expert.
This alignment document highlights lessons within the NCTM Navigations series to the Common Core State Standards.
Navigations - Algebra
Navigations- Number and Operations
Additional Math Resources
While not directly aligned to the Common Core State Standards, these resources contain high leverage tasks that could be used to supplement your existing resources.
Problem Solving Decks
These Parent documents provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning. They show how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school.
