• 5th Grade EPP (2023-24)

    Math Resources 

    • Stepping Stones Journals 

    • Math Notebooks 

    • ST Math (online program focussed on math reasoning and modeling with mathematics) 

    • First in Math (online math games designed to promote critical thinking skills and build math fluency)

    • SeeSaw (online learning platform) 


    Fifth  Grade EPP Curriculum Overview 

    We will work on Ohio’s Learning Standards and the 8 Mathematical practices using the program Stepping Stones. We will continue to work on enrichment activities to deepen our appreciation and passion for mathematics. Our Stepping Stones Student Journal is divided into 12 Modules. We will complete 4 Modules per Trimester. The curriculum will spiral and students will work on a variety of math skills in each Module.

    Ohio Learning Standards

     Mathematically proficient students:

    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.


    Understand the place value system.

     5.NBT.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left. 

    5.NBT.2 Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. 

    5.NBT.3 Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.

     a. Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded formG, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) + 2 × (1/1000).

     b. Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. 5.NBT.4 Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place, millions through hundredths.


    Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths. 

    5.NBT.5 FluentlyG multiply multi-digit whole numbers using a standard algorithmG. 

    5.NBT.6 Find whole number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

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

    5.MD.3 Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement. 

    a. A cube with side length 1 unit, called a “unit cube,” is said to have “one cubic unit” of volume, and can be used to measure volume. 

    b. A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units. 

    5.MD.4 Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units. 

    5.MD.5 Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volume.

     a. Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with whole number side lengths by packing it with unit cubes, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths, equivalently by multiplying the height by the area of the base. Represent threefold whole number products as volumes, e.g., to represent the Associative Property of Multiplication.

     b. Apply the formulas V = ℓ × w × h and V = B × h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole number edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

     c. Recognize volume as additive. Find volumes of solid figures composed of two non-overlapping right rectangular prisms by adding the volumes of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real-world problems.
