The fifth grade math curriculum will extend many of the topics and problem-solving techniques introduced at the fourth grade level. Students will continue to use estimation strategies as one method to solve problems. Students will also study multiplication and division of fractions and decimals. Areas of geometry will continue to be studied and connections to other disciplines will be made to make mathematics more relevant. Basic facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division will be mastered by the end of fifth grade. Problem solving, communication, thinking skills and technology are embedded in all six of the following strands.

Number and Operation




Data Analysis and Probability

Communicating Mathematically

Students will be using the McDougal Littell textbook MATH Thematics, Book One.
