Math Curriculum Information


In Grade 5, instructional time focuses on three critical areas: (1) developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions, and developing understanding of the multiplication of fractions and of division of fractions in limited cases (unit fractions divided by whole numbers and whole numbers divided by unit fractions); (2) extending division to 2-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system and developing understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with whole number and decimal operations; and (3) developing understanding of volume.

The primary program used for math instruction in 5th grade is Everyday Mathematics.  I also supplement from several other sources, including Groundworks and ExemplarsMajor topics covered this year will include:

  • Number theory and place value
  • Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of multi-digit numbers, decimals, fractions, and mixed numbers
  • 2-D and 3-D geometry concepts
  • Probability and data analysis
  • Measurement
  • Algebra and algebraic thinking
