MathGrade 5
In grade 5, mathematics is about (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 two-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. http://www.pta.org/parents/content.cfm?ItemNumber=2909 |
A Sample of What Your Child Will Be Working on in 5th Grade
■ Adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators (e.g., 21⁄4 – 11⁄3), and solving word problems of this kind
■ Multiplying fractions; dividing fractions in simple cases; and solving related word problems (e.g., finding the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths; determining how many 1⁄3-cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins; determining the size of a share if 9 people share a 50-pound sack of rice equally or if 3 people share 1⁄2 pound of chocolate equally)
■ Generalizing the place-value system to include decimals, and calculating with decimals to the hundredths place (two places after the decimal)
■ Multiplying whole numbers quickly and accurately, for example 1,638 × 753, and dividing whole numbers in simple cases, such as dividing 6,971 by 63
■ Understanding the concept of volume, and solving word problems that involve volume
■ Graphing points in the coordinate plane (two dimensions) to solve problems
■ Analyzing mathematical patterns and relationships
