This course will focus on many different aspects of a student’s learning experience and the ability to apply the mathematical practices. The first emphasis is on study habits, including homework, note-taking, study skills, and test taking. Mastery of basic skills in arithmetic is second. The third point of emphasis and most challenging is the ability to apply the processes and proficiency addressed in the Mathematical Practices.

Fifth grade mathematics is about (1) developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions, and developing understanding of the multiplication of fractions and of division of fractions in limited cases (unit fractions divided by whole numbers and whole numbers divided by unit fractions); (2) extending division to two-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system and developing understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with whole number and decimal operations; and (3) developing understanding of volume.

Key Areas of Focus for Grade 5: Multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions—concepts, skills, and problem solving
*Required Fluency:* 5.NBT.5 Multi-digit multiplication.

Mathematical Practices: 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4. Model with mathematics. 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision. 7. Look for and make use of structure. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
