Introduction

Thank you for visiting my web page.  My name is Gordon Petronsky.  This is my 20th year teaching 4th grade at Robert C. Lindsey Elementary.  I earned my bachelor's degree from John Carroll University in 1997 and went back to get my masters degree in 2000.  I am married and have one child - Aldyn.  I am the high school fall, winter and spring faculty manager.  I coached basketball for 18 years.  I have also coached baseball and softball at all levels at WGHS.  I enjoy yoga, eating and watching the Steelers beat the Browns.
4th Grade Math Standards

Overview

Operations and Algebraic Thinking

  • Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.
  • Gain familiarity with factors and multiples.
  • Generate and analyze patterns.

Number and Operations in Base Ten

  • Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers.
  • Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.

Number and Operations—Fractions

  • Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering.
  • Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers.
  • Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions.

Measurement and Data

  • Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.
  • Represent and interpret data.
  • Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles.

Geometry

  • Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.

Mathematical Practices

    1.      Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

    2.      Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

    3.      Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

    4.      Model with mathematics.

    5.      Use appropriate tools strategically.

    6.      Attend to precision.

    7.      Look for and make use of structure.

    8.      Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

assignments turned in late can earn 90% of the 5 points.

      Tenmarks
Very valuable practice done during I/E time and at home
Not calculated into their percentage grade, but used as a form of assessing the standards
