# 4th Grade Math FCAT: Help Preparing for the Test

The FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test) is administered to all Florida 4th graders in math. Your 4th grader can prepare for the FCAT by reviewing 4th grade math concepts.

## Online Math Lessons from AAA Math

Here are free 4th grade math lessons and practice problems that you can have your child complete at home. Targeting specific skills by clicking on a math unit (there are many sections, so each one focuses pretty narrowly on a given topic) can help your son or daughter build confidence in one type of FCAT problem. It may be worthwhile to first check the Florida Department of Education website for specific test information, and then look at AAAmath.com for targeted math practice.

Each section begins with a written explanation; many of them come with a single-question generator, so your child can practice before moving on to the next section. Some of the math units covered are estimation, multiplication, division and metric measurements.

Once your child has reviewed math topics, he or she can complete standards-based activities. These free, interactive activities and games will help your child master FCAT topics. Since the FCAT test varies from year to year and features a wide variety of math units, it may be helpful to have your child review each topic taught in 4th grade. Some of the topics you will find are story problems, multiplication and division, fractions and coordinate planes.

## Florida Dept. of Education Practice Tests from fcat.fldoe.org

Once your child has reviewed all the 4th grade math topics that will be on the FCAT, he or she can take the practice test provided by the Florida Department of Education. The sample questions involve many different types of math, such as recognizing geometrical shapes (e.g., pentagons and hexagons), finding the mean and median numbers in a list and identifying greater than or less than inequalities. This sample test comes as a PDF file and can be printed out with or without answers shown.
