## 5TH Grade Math Curriculum

In fifth grade, students will develop proficiency in conceptual understanding, application, procedural skills, and fluency through the use of the Prentice Hall Mathematics Series, Course 1 series.

We follow the Diocese of Joliet Mathematical Standards Curriculum which are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The math standards include:

* Writing and interpreting numerical expressions.

* Analyzing patterns and relationships.

* Understanding the place value system.

* Performing operations with multi-digit whole numbers and decimals to the hundredths.

* Using equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions.

* Applying and extending previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions.

* Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system.

* Represent and interpret data.

* Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.

* Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

* Classify two-dimensional and three-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties.

* Using mathematical vocabulary.

* Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems.

* Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions.

* Compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples.

* Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the number system of rational numbers.

* Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions.

* Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities.

* Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables.

* Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume.

* Develop an understanding of statistical variability.

* Summarize and describe distributions.

While achieving the math standards, focus will also be placed on the following Catholic standards:

* Develop the mental habits of precise, determined, careful, and accurate questioning, inquiry, and reasoning.

* Develop lines of inquiry (as developmentally appropriate) to understand why things are true and why they are false.

* Recognize the power of the human mind as both a gift form God and a reflection of Him in whose image and likeness we are made.

* Survey the truths about mathematic objects that are interesting in their own right and independent of human opinions.
