• 5th Grade EPP (2020-21)

    Math Resources 

    • ST Math (online)
    • First in Math (online) 
    • Khan Academy (online)
    • SeeSaw (online platform- homework assignments will be posted here). 
    • Stepping Stones Journal (student workbook)


    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. OurStepping 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. 


    Homework Expectations 

    Homework assignments will be posted on SeeSaw. This is a new online digital platform that has been purchased for students in grades K-5.  Students will have daily assignments posted in Seesaw for their “At Home” days. These activities will include math practice problems, problem solving activities, ST Math, First in Math, watching online math videos, and/or online math games.


    Students can access our weekly assignments list by checking thier "Inbox" in Seesaw. 


    Trimester 2 Math Topics (Modules 12,  5-8)

    • Addition and Subtraction with Decimals  
    • Addition and subtraction with Fractions and Mixed Numbers
    • Classifying Triangles 
    • Exponents 
    • Multiplying Fractions and Mixed Numbers 
    • Customary System 
    • Division with the Standard Algorithm 


    Current Math Topics

    I am amazed at how well students adapted to our Remote Learning and Hybrid Learning Model for the first trimester!  

    We are working on two lessons a day during our hybrid model. We are working on an easier lesson and more challenging lesson each day. In November and December, we will work on Module 5 (Decimals/Shapes) and Module 12 (Long Division).  

    After Thanksgiving break, we will wrap up our Robotics Enrichment Unit and begin our Home Design Project. Students will be drawing a scale model of their Dream House! 


    Ohio Learning Standards

    Below are some standards we will focus on during Trimester 2

    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.
