5th EPP Curriculum Overview

You will be amazed at the mathematical skills your child learns this year! We will work on Ohio Math 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.  The curriculum will spiral and students will work on a variety of math skills in each Module.

Homework Expectations

Homework will be passed out every Friday and is due on Friday the following week.  Homework is assigned to help students review concepts and prepare for tests.

Trimester 2 Math Topics (Modules 7, 8, 9, and 10)

• Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division with Fractions and Mixed Numbers

• Exponents

• Multiplying Fractions and Mixed Numbers

• Customary System

• Multiplying Decimals

Current Math Topics

Our big focus for Trimester 2 will be adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions and decimals.

For our current enrichment project, we are working on multiplying fractions and using scale factor to enlarge or reduce images. When your child told you he/she needed a candy wrapper for math class, your child was telling you the truth! We will be using math to draw an enlarged picture of the candy wrapper.

We will take our Winter MAP test for math this November/December during the testing window of November 28-December 16th.

In January, we will work on our Robotics Challenges, which include: Autonomous Parking, Reversing Safely, Automatic Headlights, Line Detection, Object Detection, Cruise Control, and Obstacle Course. The students will prepare for Bot Maze and  Bot Battles later on this winter.

Critical Area 1: Developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions and developing understanding of the multiplication of fractions and of division of fractions in limited cases (unit fractions divided by whole numbers and whole numbers divided by unit fractions)- Students apply their understanding of fractions and fraction models to represent the addition and subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators as equivalent calculations with like denominators. They develop fluency in calculating sums and differences of fractions, and make reasonable estimates of them. Students also use the meaning of fractions, of multiplication and division, and the relationship between multiplication and division to understand and explain why the procedures for multiplying and dividing fractions make sense. They apply their understanding of fractions to solve real-world problems. (Note: this is limited to the case of dividing unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.)

Critical Area 2: Extending division to 2-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system and developing understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with whole number and decimal operations-- Students develop understanding of why division procedures work based on the meaning of base-ten numerals and properties of operations. They finalize fluency with multi-digit addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. They apply their understandings of models for decimals, decimal notation, and properties of operations to add and subtract decimals to hundredths. They develop fluency in these computations, and make reasonable estimates of their results. Students use the relationship between decimals and fractions, as well as the relationship between finite decimals and whole numbers (i.e., a finite decimal multiplied by an appropriate power of 10 is a whole number), to understand and explain why the procedures for multiplying and dividing finite decimals make sense. They compute products and quotients of decimals to hundredths efficiently and accurately.
