Fifth graders have math learning expectations in the areas of Number Sense, Measurement, Geometry, Algebraic Thinking, and Data Analysis. Our website contains a list of the specific expectations from each area in the links to your left. Feel free to click the links in order to learn more about these math learning expectations, as well as the activities that can help your fifth grader understand more complex mathematical problems.
When students reach fifth grade, they are close to being ready for middle school - which is why strong math skills are important at this stage. They must learn how to perform operations on decimals, as well as recognize the relationships between fractions, decimals, and percentages. Fifth grade students are also more perceptive at this stage, enabling them to solve more complex mathematical problems.
