An Overview of the Math in Fifth Grade
Number and Operations: Whole Numbers Students practice and refine the strategies they know for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers as they improve computational fluency and apply these strategies to solving problems with larger numbers. They expand their knowledge of the structure of place value and the base-ten number system as they work with numbers in the hundred thousands and beyond. By the end of the year, students are expected to know their division facts and to efficiently solve computation problems involving whole numbers for all operations.
Number and Operations: Fractions, Decimals, and Percents The major focus of the work
with rational numbers is on understanding relationships among fractions, decimals, and percents.
Students make comparisons and identify equivalent fractions, decimals and percents. They order
fractions and decimals, and develop strategies for adding fractions and decimals to the
Geometry and Measurement Students develop their understanding of the attributes of 2-D
shapes, examine the characteristics of polygons, including a variety of triangles, quadrilaterals,
and regular polygons. They also find the measure of angles of polygons. In measurement,
students use standard units of measure to study area and perimeter and to determine the volume
Patterns and Functions Students examine, represent, and describe situations in which the rate
of change is constant. They create tables and graphs to represent the relationship between two
variables in a variety of contexts and articulate general rules using symbolic notation for each
situation. Students create graphs for situations in which the rate of change is not constant and
consider why the shape of the graph is not a straight line.
Data Analysis and Probability Work focuses on comparing two sets of data collected from
experiments developed by the students. They represent, describe, and interpret this data. In their
work with probability, students describe and predict the likelihood of events and compare
theoretical probabilities with actual outcomes of many trials. They use fractions to express the
probabilities of the possible outcomes.
