5th-6th Grade Mathematics
  • Number Sense Operations
  • Multiplication Division (1-2 digit)
  • Fractions (equivalency, reducing,
  • Adding/subtracting/multiplying/dividing)
  • Problem Solving (all operations)
  • Patterns (variables, input/output)
  • Data Analysis Probability
  • (proportion, statistics, graphs, charts)
  • Measurement (geometric, time, capacity
    distance)
  • Geometry (3-D shapes, points, 4-quadrants)

8
  • Good mathematics teaching does not stop at
    introducing a rule good mathematics teaching
    encourages learners to master the why so that
    they can confidently and accurately apply a
    rule. (Intel Mathematics Teacher Manual, Page
    395)
  • Concrete Pictorial
    Algorithm or Equation

9
Critical Areas of Instruction
  • Develop fluency with addition and subtraction of
    fractions, and understand the multiplication and
    division of fractions in limited cases
  • Extend division to 2-digit divisors, integrate
    decimal fractions into place value system,
    develop understanding of operations with decimals
    to hundredths, and develop fluency with whole
    number and decimal operations
  • Develop understanding of volume.

10
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.

11
  • How can parents help
  • Word problems may appear complicated and
    advanced.
  • Students will need support in their thinking
    before they begin to solve, so ask them
  • What do you know about the problem?
  • What do you know about the answer?
  • Have you seen a problem like this before?
  • Does that make sense?
  • Teachers may delay showing students short cuts or
    standard algorithms.
  • Please honor that delay and refrain from teaching
    them short cutsIt is by design to develop a deep
    understanding of math concepts ?
