Developing Numeracy in Year 4

In Year 4 children solve problems with increasingly large positive numbers. They learn all their times tables up to 12x12 and how to add and subtract 4 digit numbers using formal written methods. They learn to identify acute and obtuse angles and start to understand that fractions have decimal equivalents. Children find out how to calculate perimeter of shapes and find the area by counting squares. When working with time children are taught to understand the 12 and 24 hours clock.
