Mathematics  Grade 5


Representations and Ordering

The learner will:
Represent place
values from units through billions using powers of ten and decimals through
thousandths.
Order, compare, and
solve equations using whole numbers up to a billion and decimals through
thousandths.
Represent
multiplication as repeated addition.
Recognize, translate
between, and model multiple representations of decimals, fractions less
than one, and percents.
Solve problems
involving descriptions of numbers, including characteristics and
relationships.
Identify fractional
pieces that have the same value but different shapes.
Compare and order
fractions and decimals efficiently and find their approximate position on a
number line.
Solve problems
involving the commutative, distributive, and identity properties of
operations on whole numbers.
Identify prime and
composite numbers.
Explore and use
divisibility rules.
Determine the least
common multiple and the greatest common factor of a set of numbers.
Estimate,
demonstrate and model situations involving addition, subtraction and
multiplication of fractions, whole numbers and decimals.
Simplify arithmetic
expressions with rational numbers using the field properties and the order
of operations.
Recognize and use
the inverse relationships of addition and subtraction, multiplication and
division to simplify computations and solve problems.
Solve multiplication
number sentences and word problems with whole numbers, decimals, and
fractions.
Compute with 10,
100, 1000, and other powers of 10.

change in one quantity affects the other in a functional relationship
involving whole numbers and unit fractions.

Writing, Interpreting, and
Solving Equations

The learner will:
Create, model, and solve
algebraic equations using concrete materials.

Properties of Single Figures and
Coordinate Geometry

The learner will:
Identify, draw,

lines and develop vocabulary to describe the attributes.
Perform simple
constructions with appropriate tools.
Determine and
describe the relationships within a circle. (e.g., pi, the diameter, the
radius, and the circumference)
Determine unknown
angle measures using angle relationships and properties of a triangle or a
quadrilateral.
Classify and
identify two or threedimensional shapes according to their properties
(e.g., regular and irregular, concave and convex, types of quadrilaterals,
pyramids, and prisms)

Relationships Between and Among Multiple Figures

The learner will:
Demonstrate
congruence and similarity of plane figures using transformations.
(translation, rotation, reflection)
Determine the
relationships between the number of vertices or sides in a polygon, the
number of diagonals, and the sum of its angles.
Match a front, right
side, and top view drawing with a threedimensional model built with cubes.
Identify and
describe the five regular polyhedra.
Create regular and
semiregular tessellations using pattern blocks, other manipulative, or
technology.

Probability

The learner will:
Create double bar
graphs, double line graphs, and stem and leaf plots with and without
technology, using given data.
Select an
appropriate graph format to display given data.
Read and interpret,
infer, predict, draw conclusions, and evaluate data from any graph.
Determine mean,
median, mode, minimum value, maximum value, and range, and discuss what
each does to help interpret a given set of data.
List all possible
outcomes of a single event and tell whether an outcome is certain,
impossible, likely, or unlikely.
Record probabilities
as fractions, decimals, or percents.
Demonstrate that the
sum of all probabilities equals one.
List outcomes by a
variety of methods (e.g., tree
diagram).
