In fourth grade, Math in Focus lessons emphasize developing a conceptual understanding of math. Concepts are taught by moving through a sequence of activities that develop understanding from concrete to pictorial to abstract. Students develop concrete understanding through hands-on activities with manipulatives such as counters, coins, or base ten blocks. Pictorial understanding happens through pictures, drawings, or other forms of illustrations. Then, concepts are practiced in the abstract with numbers and symbols.
