 Teacher and child talking about Geometry task.

SMCPS uses Bridges in Mathematics, 2nd Edition, as a primary resource for teaching your child the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.

In grade 5 math, your child will:
  • use models and strategies to divide 2- and 3-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers, with and without remainders. (Students are not expected to use the standard long division algorithm until sixth grade.)
  • add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators
  • multiply fractions and divide fractions in simple cases
  • measure volume
  • explain patterns in the number of zeros and the placement of the decimal point in the answer when multiplying or dividing by powers of 10
  • read, write, round, compare, add & subtract, multiply & divide decimals
  • multiply multi-digit whole numbers
  • locate and graph points on a coordinate plane
