Key takeaways

• In year 4 maths, students develop a deeper understanding of multiplication and division, fractions, and measurements.
• Year 4 word problems require more advanced comprehension skills.
• Place Value: Understanding place value helps us read and write numbers correctly and compare their values.
• Look for opportunities for your child to practise their maths at home–worksheets, maths games, or a maths practice app will help strengthen new mathematical knowledge. While consistency is key, maths practice for year 4 should be engaging and fun.

In addition to reviewing and strengthening the skills learned in previous years, year 4 maths students learn multiplication and division, explore fractions, calculate measurements, and more. Also, word problems at this level are often multi-step, requiring students to understand what operations to perform and how to perform them correctly.

This list of year 4 maths questions is intended to reinforce concepts students have already been taught. The list is divided into sections: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, measurement, and multi-step problems. These sections allow students to specifically focus their practice, but feel free to skip around and choose the maths practice problems that best suit your child’s needs.
