1. Place Value, Power of 10, and Expanded Notation
We start the year discussing Place Value to the billions place. We also discuss the value of each digit increasing by a power of tenas we go to the left. Students also need to understand place value as it relates to expanded notation. The following video covers all of these concepts.

3. Decimals, base ten number system, comparing fractions to decimals, expanded form, and hundredths place
Next we discuss decimals. The video "Math Antics  Decimal Place Value" covers the place value concepts of decimals, including our base ten number system, each place gets 1/10 smaller as we go to the right, comparing fractions to decimals, and expanded form. Fourth graders only need to know values to the hundredths place.
4. Fractions Song  Review numerator and denominator examples
5. Converting base 10 fractions to decimals
Next we spend time converting base 10 fractions to decimals. The video "Math Antics  Converting Base 10 Fractions" covers this concepts well. Fourth graders only need to know how to convert fractions of tenths and hundredths to decimals.
