There are a wide variety of skills and concepts that will be taught in fifth grade. With the newly adopted Common Core Standards, fifth graders will be expected to be proficient in many areas of math. We will focus on three critical areas: 1) developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions, and developing understanding of the multiplication of fractions and division of fractions, 2) division with 2 digit divisors, decimals and 3) developing an understanding of volume. This isn't your old fifth grade math anymore, but we look forward to the new challenges ahead.
