Please make sure that you try to practice your math skills at least ONCE a week!
In particular, be sure to keep your multiplication & division skills sharp.
On Thursday, June 14th, we had our last minute math on Division Mixed 3.
My recommended goal for students entering 4th grade:
You should be able to complete our last minute math in under 2 minutes per side:
The other side of our last minute math is a really cool minute math involving fact families.
Math Magician Multiplication Madness! -Are you a math magician? In this activity, see if you can correctly answer 20 multiplication questions in one minute.
Math Magician Division Madness! -Are you a math magician? In this activity, see if you can correctly answer 20 division questions in one minute.
Ultimate Math Magician! -Are you a truly awesome math magician?? This is the ultimate test! In this activity, see if you can correctly answer 50 questions in 2 1/2 minutes or 100 questions in 5 minutes.
Math Flash Cards:
Quick Flash Cards - This is a great place to start when using online flashcards. To begin, first select which factor you wish to work on. After you have successfully completed 3 rounds, you get to change the theme background for the game!
Mr. Martini's Flash Cards -Click on any one of the flash card pictures to begin your adventure. Be sure to click on the check mark on the bottom of the first flash card that comes up to get the answer to each flash card.

More Challenging Multiplication Activities:
Sum Sense Multiplication -Drage and drop the number cards to make a multiplication sentence that works. Before you start, select the number of questions and the time that you want to be given to answer each challenge.
More Advanced Multiplication:
2-Digit by 1-Digit Multiplication -Either take out a piece of paper and pencil OR try your hand at your mental math skills and see if you can get the correct products for each 2-Digit by 1-Digit multiplication problem in this activity. Once you've done that, type the product in and then click the check box to see if you got the correct answer!
3-Digit by 1-Digit Multiplication -This is a fun activity to help you practice your multiplication skills! I would recommend using paper and pencil to determine the product. Once you've done that, type the product in and then click the check box to see if you got the correct answer!
More Challenging Division Activities:
Sum Sense Division -Drag and drop the number cards in the places which will create a division sentence that makes "Sum Sense!" When you think that you have the cards in the correct positions, click the "Next" button for another question. Interestingly, you may very well discover that the number cards could actually go in more than one place in order for the division sentence to make sense! Also, don't forget that you are able to adjust the number of questions and the time needed to answer those questions before you begin your challenge.
Bracket Basics-I LOVE this activity! Once you've really mastered your times tables, see if you can be a good number detective to complete these equations. Remember, when an equation has a bracket around any numbers, you do that operation FIRST! Once you've done the operation(s) within each bracket, then do the operation(s) outside of the brackets to determine the answer. In this activity, they give you the answer to the equation. You just need to determine where the numbers go to make that equation equal the answer that is given.
More Advanced Division:
Here are some activities to help you with long division:
Division Practice with Remainders -This activity gives you even more practice with your division. For each problem, your quotient will more than likely have a remainder. If you are having difficulty doing these division problems in your head, I HIGHLY recommend that you solve them on paper first before clicking on the "check" button to check your work.
Dividerama -Try this activity to give you help in practicing your long division. If you're having difficulty, be sure to click on the "Help" box. If your browser is having difficulty with the game, please try the game with Google Chrome.
Dividerama with 3-Digit Dividends! -Here's an even more challenging version of Dividerama. If you're having difficulty, be sure to click on the "Help" box. If your browser is having difficulty with the game, please try the game with Google Chrome.
Thinking Blocks Model & Solve Word Problems with Fractions -This is a great site that gives you practice working with bar diagrams to model fraction word problems. In particular, I would focus on "Find a Part," "Find the Total," "Find the Other Part," and "Same Denominators." If you really want a challenge, try the 5th activity called "Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators."
Thinking Blocks Modeling of Addition Word Problems -A really good strategy that can help you solve word problems is by using bar diagrams. Bar diagrams help you to visualize the information that you know and how that information can help you to solve the problem. This site does an awesome job of modeling addition and subtraction word problems using bar diagrams.
Thinking Blocks Model & Solve Multiplication Problems - This site also does an awesome job of helping you develop the skills in drawing a bar diagram and using that bar diagram to help you solve multiplication problems. I recommend that you start with "Parts and Whole" to help you with using bar diagrams to solve multiplication problems.
Subtraction Regrouping Activity using Squid! -Just scroll down to the bottom of the page under the heading of 4th Grade Addition & Subtraction. Click on "Subtraction Algorithm." Then click on "View Teacher Tool."
Fraction Golf -Did you enjoy playing fraction golf with a partner in class? If so, be sure to download and print your very own copy of this game. You will need 2 six sided dice to play this game. OR... for more fun, why not try using your ten-sided die if you got one for bringing in your very own bump bag from earlier in the year!
