**FIFTH GRADE MATH**

**2018-2019 Academic Year**

Fifth grade math curriculum this year will follow the Kentucky Core Academic Standards (KCAS). These standards are more rigorous and require deeper understanding, knowledge, and mastery of each skill.

While working through these standards your child will follow the eight mathematical practices.

- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- Model with mathematics.
- Use appropriate tools strategically.
- Attend to precision.
- Look for and make use of structure.
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

**Topics to be covered this year:**

**1. Operations and Algebraic Thinking:**

a. Use parentheses and brackets in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.

b. Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers.

c. Analyze patterns and relationships.

**2. Numbers and Operations in Base Ten:**

a. Understand the place value system.

b. Explain patterns in the number of zeroes of the product when multiplying a number by the powers of 10.

c. Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.

d. Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.

e. Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

f. Find whole number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors.

g. Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to the hundredths using concrete drawings, models, and/or reasoning.

**3. Number and Operations-Fractions:**

a. Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators using equations and word problems.

b. Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator.

c. Multiply fractions and interpret multiplication as scaling.

d. Divide fractions using equations and word problems.

**4. Geometry**:

a. Graph points on the coordinate plane in the first quadrant to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

b. Identify and classify two-dimensional figures based on their properties.

**5. Measurement and Data:**

a. Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system and solve multi-step word problems.

b. Make a line plot to display a data set.

c. Understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.

**Differentiation:**

Along with differentiated instructional practices, each student will have an individualized Study Island and Front Row Ed account. Both of these websites contain skill work specific for each individual student. Also, students will be completing Math Counts activities and projects during LEAPS instruction.

**Homework:**

Math homework will be on Monday through Thursday nights. It is important that all homework is completed and turned in on time, so your child will be able to ask questions and engage in the mathematical discussions in class. Please let me know by e-mail or phone call if your child is struggling with an assignment or concept at home.

**Tests and Quizzes:**

Tests will be given throughout the year after units of study are completed. A study guide will go home with the student that references notes to study and sample problems to work.

Mental math quizzes will be given throughout the year to increase computation and automaticity skills. PLEASE make sure your child is studying addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts throughout the year. Mental Math Quizzes will be 10 points and other topic quizzes will range from 10-30 points.

**Projects:**

Group and individualized math projects will be worked on throughout the year. On projects that require group work, each student will be graded individually for contribution and participation in the project. These projects will be completed here at school.
