To find these links in IXL, students need to either:
1) Log into www.ixl.com/signin/klsd using username and password (example pretend student login is: username: jfisher22 and password: 284453Jf), click on the ‘State Standards’ tab, choose NY, and choose their grade level, click on the link as titled below.
2) Directly click on a link below (this will be easier for students). However, if clicking directly on the link below, this will take you to www.ixl.com the general website, not the URL specific to KLSD. Therefore, if clicking directly on the link below there is a slightly different method of logging in. Instead of simply using username to log in, student needs to enter username@klsd in the username field (example pretend student login is: username: jfisher22@klsd and password: 284453Jf).
Student MUST log in. If student does not log in, then his/her responses to the math questions do not get logged, and the student will face a limit of only being able to answer 20 questions per day. If the student logs in, then s/he can solve an unlimited number of problems.
Login box is at the top, towards the left. Again, student MUST log in. Even though they can solve problems without being logged in, they need to log in so that they don't face the 20 question limit and so that their progress in each module can be logged in the Reports tab of IXL (that's a tab on the top navigation bar of IXL).
Modules should be followed in consecutive order as listed below.
The following are modules in IXL.com that correspond with EngageNY’s 4th grade Common Core Math module 1 http://www.engageny.org/resource/grade-4-mathematics-module-1
Grade 4 Module 1: Place Value, Rounding, and Algorithms for Addition and Subtraction
4NBT.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
4NBT.2 Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
4NBT.3 Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
4OA.3 Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
4NBT.4 Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

Grade 4 Module 2: Unit Conversions and Problem Solving with Metric Measurement
4MD.1 Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table.
4MD.2 Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
