• Grade 5 Math Overview

    The Grade 5 Math curriculum is based on the New York State Learning Standards.

    Fifth grade 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. Key Areas of Focus for 3-5: Multiplication and division of whole numbers

     

    The curriculum is divided into 6 learning units or modules:

    Module 1: Place Value and Decimal Fractions

    • read and write numbers from the millions to the thousandths place
