In fifth grade math the emphasis is on fractions, decimals and volume: (1) developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions and multiplication and division of fractions and whole numbers, (2) decimal operations to hundredths and whole number division with 2-digit divisors, and (3) volume.
Math Galaxy’s Fifth Grade Common Core Math covers all of the Common Core math standards for fifth grade as listed below.
The concepts are presented in bite-size pieces with an unlimited supply of practice problems, with numbers chosen randomly.
Illustrations are used throughout to reinforce the concepts.
By solving problems students earn robots to use in a maze game, plus there are several other games involving math practice.
Certificates and summaries of scores can be emailed to be printed.
