Math in 5th Grade

5th grade math is designed to prepare students for Pre-Algebra in middle school. While students still problem-solve in groups and work together frequently to tackle mathematical challenges, 5th grade math also readies students to work independently, persevere through challenges, and go beyond calculation to conceptualization of the math they are encountering. Utilizing Math in Focus, Engage New York, and various manipulatives and Place value charts, throughout the year in math, students will practice:
  • Number Sense
  • Whole Number Multiplication and Division
  • Fractions and Mixed Numbers
  • Multiplying and Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers
  • Multiplying and Dividing Decimals
  • Percent
  • Area
  • Ratios
  • Graphs and Probability
  • Angles
    Properties of Triangles and Four-Sided Figures
    Surface Area and Volume
