Fifth Grade

  • In Grade 5, instructional time will focus 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.

    While the content learning goals describe the mathematics students should be able to understand and do, the first eight learning goals (The Standards for Mathematical Practice) describe how students should engage with these mathematical concepts and skills as they grow in mathematical maturity and expertise. Teachers will connect the mathematical practices to mathematical content in all mathematics instruction. These learning goals merit the most time, resources, innovation, and focus necessary to qualitatively improve the instruction, assessment, and student achievement in mathematics.
