This year in 5th grade math, we will be focusing on the following topics:
Place Value and Decimal Fractions
Multi-Digit Whole Number and Decimal Fraction Operations

This course will ask students to focus on mathematical language to help strengthen tools for picturing, stating, and executing mathematical problems. We will be using the Go Math Textbook, along with additional resources to help guide our learning this year. I encourage students to use the websites listed online to study and review at home as often as possible. Homework will be extremely important in determining your success in this class. Going home and practicing what was learned in class is an excellent tool to strengthen your understanding of the material.

I look forward to an exciting year together as we discover the wonderful world of mathematics and develop the tools necessary to become life-long learners.
