Grade 5 Overview

View unit yearlong overview here

Unit 1 begins with a benchmark for standard 5.NBT.5 requiring students to fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm; this standard is repeated in units 3 and 5 to assess for full proficiency.  Students also extend their understanding of place value to decimals and find whole-number quotients of whole numbers (4-digits by 2-digits).

In unit 2 the focus is geometric measures including volume.  Students relate volume to the properties of addition and multiplication and solve problems requiring application of these operations.

Unit 3 extends operations with multi-digit whole numbers to include operations with decimals to hundredths and fractions.  In unit 4 the notion of fraction multiplication is given in the general case and students solve word problems requiring the multiplication of fractions and whole numbers and division of fractions and unit fractions.  Unit 5 involves patterns and plots in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane and the classification of two-dimensional figures as a hierarchy.
