Fourth Grade Color Math Curriculum


McRuffy 4th Grade Color Math is available only, directly,
from McRuffy Press.

The McRuffy 4th Grade Color Math Curriculum trains children to use a combination of skill, logic, and knowledge to interpret mathematical concepts evident in the world around us. Using a spiraling approach that keeps concepts fresh, the 4th grade math curriculum covers a wide range of topics and concepts.

McRuffy 4th Grade Color Math Curriculum includes:

Teacher's Manual

Daily lesson plans give examples, teaching tips, and lightly scripted lessons to introduce concepts. The easy-to-use plans follow the same format as previous levels of the Color Math curriculum. Workbook answers are included after each math lesson. The manual is bound in two parts. The coil binding allows for fold flat use.


The colorful math workbook includes three or four activities per daily lesson. The activities include much more than a sheet of problems to solve. A variety of concepts are offered daily to teach, reinforce, practice, and review concepts. The coil binding allows for fold flat use.

Resource Pack

The resource pack includes a variety of unbound sheets. With the exception of a few sheets, the pack can be fully consumable, but can also be reproduced. The resource pack includes over 100 sheets including testing materials, additional workbook-like activities, graphing and grid sheets, and shape models (geometric solids). Included with the resource pack is a precut card set.

Several laminated posters and game boards are a part of the pack, as well as unique overlay system for comparing fractions.

Response Book

As with other levels, students grow in mental math skills and listening skills using our unique Response Book. Students record responses to teacher read auditory exercises. The format is self-checking and non-consumable. It now includes a basic skills section for mastering multiplication and division skills that ties the two skills together by building an understanding of number families.
