In this math unit we learned about rounding, comparing numbers, Place value, adding subtracing numbers, and different forms of numbers. We did a lot of activities in this unit including Number talks, and making card games. Also, we had a math website called Khan academy. We had assignments on the website and our 4th grade mission. I am proud of my addition and subtracting with algorithm. I can add and subtract very fast. Then we also learned how to compare big numbers. In Place value we had a x10 model it made me very easy to understand place value. We also learned different kinds of forms for example in standered form is 143. in expanded form its 100 + 40 +3. In word form it’s one hundred and forty three. Finally, at the end of the unit I got a good test score I got 94% correct. I am proud of my test score. This was a big unit I learned alot of things.
