Math


5th grade is the beginning of taking math concepts that were previously taught and learned and applying them to new skills. 
Unit 4: Multiplication of Whole Numbers and Decimals
  • Students will multiply whole numbers and decimals
  • Students will multiply whole numbers and decimals 
  • Solve real world problems 
  • Students will use a variety of multiplication strategies and estimation to determine reasonableness of an answer (how accurate their answer is)
  • Key Vocabulary: exponent, power of 10, equivalence, decimal, estimation, rounding, shift patterns (reference base 10)





Unit 5: Division of Whole Numbers and Decimals
  • Students will continue to build on their knowledge of dividing multi-digit numbers by one-digit divisor (learning from 4th grade)
  • Students will build off that knowledge to divide multi-digit numbers by two-digit divisors
  • Students will solve division problems with whole and decimal numbers in both the dividend and divisor
  • Students will communicate how to interpret the remainder 
  • Students will use estimation and multiplication to check the accuracy of their answers
  • They will solve and create real world problems 
  • Key Vocabulary: Dividend, Divisor, Quotient, Inverse 
Unit 1: Addition and Subtraction of Fractions with Unlike Denominators

  • Students apply equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with different denominators in mathematical and real world situations.
  • Apply number sense of fractions to assess the reasonableness of a sum or difference mentally (Example: recognize an incorrect result, 1/2 + 2/5 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2)
  • Use benchmark fractions to estimate sums and differences
  • Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions with like denominators (Example: 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12)
  • Solve fraction and mixed number problems that are represented both vertically and horizontally
  • Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators (Example: by using equations or visual fraction models such as number lines, grids and fraction bars to represent the problem.)
  • Key Vocabulary: fraction, equivalent fractions, benchmark (landmark) fractions, unit fraction, common denominator, simplify, reasonableness, estimation

This link will lead you to basic math fact recall. Students can enter their answer and the computer will grade it. The link will open up multiplication, but there are the options for division, adding, and subtracting.  Oct 6, 2016, 10:44 AM Rebecca Farley
