Introduction to 5th Grade Math Standards

 The academic rigor continues to increase when students reach Grade 5. Students will need to apply their knowledge of different mathematical concepts across the entire curriculum and increase their proficiency of the 8 Mathematical Practices. With United 4 Math, you'll have no problem assisting your student reach mastery in all of these challenging concepts. 3 Critical Areas in Grade 5 Mathematics Develop fluency and deepen their understanding of Fractions and fraction models to represent the Addition, Subtraction, and Multiplication of Fractions Extending Division to 2-Digit Divisors, while integrating the Decimal Place Value System Develop an Understanding of Volume

Problem Solving Review

Overview:

Before diving into the rigorous 5th Grade content, it's a good idea to review the basics of Problem Solving. The next 2 lessons, which focus on Keywords and the steps to solving word problems, will be extremely helpful throughout the entire year.

Students need to have a strong understanding of which keyword is associated with which operation. That lesson is followed by a detailed explanation of the CUBES Method, a strategy that helps students focus on the important aspects of each world problem. This Method is used throughout all of the United 4 Math grade-level series and is an excellent way for students to get comfortable working on word problems.

Lessons:

• Lesson 1: Keywords for Problem Solving
• Lesson 2: CUBES Method for Problem Solving

Resources:

Series 1: Multi-Digit Multiplication

Overview:

Until this point, students have been gradually learning how to Multiply Multi-Digit Numbers using partial products, area/array models, and place value strategies. When they enter 5th grade, students should have a thorough understanding of the multiplication process and are ready to learn the Standard Algorithm to fluently multiply multi-digit numbers.

This series will explain the steps of the standard algorithm and how to find an unknown factor in a multiplication equation.

Lessons:

• Lesson 1: Multiplication using the Standard Algorithm
• Lesson 2: Determine the Unknown Factor in a Multiplication Equation

Series Resources:

Series 2: Order of Operations

Overview:

Series 2 focuses on the Order of Operations, which is the correct Sequence to solve Multi-Step/Multi-Operational Problems. This will include how to use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions and how to know which operation to solve first. If problems are solved out of sequence, students will not find the correct answers. Our lesson provides several examples of this skill so you can walk away with a great understanding.

Once students are comfortable using the Order of Operations, they will apply their new sequencing knowledge when Evaluating Errors in problems that have already been completed, and when learning to Write and Interpret Expressions from word problems.

Lessons:

• Lesson 1: Order of Operations: PEMDAS
• Lesson 2: Evaluating Errors using the Order of Operations
• Lesson 3: Write and Interpret Expressions
