Our 5th Grade Math Goals

By the end of 5th grade, child can:
-add mixed numbers with like denominators
-complete a word problem that has 1 unnecessary bit of information (This means that the child can identify the unnecessary information in the word problem, and knows to disregard it.)
-divide a 4-digit number by a 1-digit number
-subtract money (with regrouping)
-solve word problems involving subtracting money with regrouping
-solve a word problem with a variable (Example of an expression: x + 3 = 28, what is x?)
-understand fractions and their relationship to division (1/3 of 36 = 36 divided by 3 – wp)
-round to the nearest hundred
-add 2 numbers after rounding to the nearest 100 (Example 463 + 321 = ~500 + ~300 = ~800)
-write a number in standard form, when given word form (up to six digits)
-add money (dollars and cents, three prices)
-multiply 3 numbers
-multiply a 4 digit number by a 1 digit number
-divide a 4 digit number by a 1 digit number
-subtract up to 5 digits from 5 digits (with regrouping)
-pre-algebra: solve for a variable when given a multiplication expression (30m = 6000)
-divide a 4 digit number with zeros by a two digit number with 0 in 10s place
-apply order of operations (3 operations, use of parentheses, addition and subtraction
processes only)
-calculate equivalent fractions
-calculate half of a number up to 100 (including odd numbers) (Example: half of 49 is 24 1/2)
-know how many sides various polygons have
-count by hundreds (2700, 2800, 2900…)
-solve a multi-step word problem involving perimeter
-measure a line segment in millimeters
-solve a multi-step word problem (Example: Total – Part A = Part B, when given Total and Part B)
