Standard Identifier: 4.NF.5
Content Area: Mathematics
Grade: 4
Domain: Number and Operations—Fractions

Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions.

Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.

Students who can generate equivalent fractions can develop strategies for adding fractions with unlike denominators in general. But addition and subtraction with unlike denominators in general is not a requirement at this grade.
