At the heart of the curriculum are two student worktexts (A and B), each covering about half a year of math work. These worktexts contain all the instruction and the exercises in the same book — which makes lesson preparation a breeze. The worktexts are written directly to the student, and thus they allow many students to teach themselves and to learn directly from the books.
You will also get separate answer keys, chapter tests, additional cumulative reviews (I do recommend you use at least some of them), and a versatile worksheet maker (Internet access required) for those times when your child needs just a bit more practice.
The PDF files are enabled for annotation. This means that if you prefer, your student can fill them in on the computer, using the typewriter and drawing tools in Acrobat Reader version 9 or greater, or on a tablet device using any PDF app with annotation capabilities. (Learn more.)
BONUS! If you purchase the download or CD version, you will also get SoftPak programs completely FREE. The 6 programs in SoftPak (4 math, 1 language arts, 1 list maker) offer both onscreen and printable activities in a lowgraphic, high content format. Read more and see screenshots.

The fifth grade is time for fractions and decimals, in particular. In part 5A, we study decimals in depth and with substantial detail. Students also deepen their understanding of whole numbers, learn much more problem solving, and get introduced to the calculator.
The year starts out with a study of whole numbers and their operations. Students get to review multidigit multiplication and learn long division with twodigit divisors. We also review divisibility and factors from fourth grade, and study prime factorization.
In the second chapter, the focus is on large numbers and using a calculator. This is the first time a calculator is introduced in Math Mammoth complete curriculum—thus far, all calculations have been done mentally, or with paper and pencil. I want students to learn to be critical in their use of the calculator—use it with good judgment. Every exercise where calculator use is to be allowed is marked with a little calculator symbol.
The third chapter is about equations and problem solving. We study simple equations with the help of a balance and bar models. The main idea is to get students used to the idea of an equation and what it means to solve an equation. Students also do a fair amount of problem solving using the visual bar model.
The fourth chapter is about decimals and their operations. It is a long chapter because now is the time to learn decimal operations well. It is assumed that the student already has a solid foundation for decimal place value, as taught in Math Mammoth 4th grade curriculum. That is the true means of preventing common misconceptions, or students resorting to rote memorization of the decimal operations.
In chapter 5 we study graphing in a coordinate grid, line and bar graphs, and average and mode. Today's world has become increasingly complex, with lots of data in the media, so our children need a good grasp of graphs to be able to make sense of all that information.
Chapter 6 is about the addition and subtraction of fractions—another focus topic for 5th grade, besides decimals. Students learn to add and subtract unlike fractions, using the technique of first converting them to equivalent like fractions.
In chapter 7, we study the multiplication and division of fractions (division only in special cases), relying first on visual models, and then proceeding to the abstract shortcuts.
Chapter 8 takes us to geometry, starting with a review of angles and polygons. From there, students will learn to draw circles, to classify triangles and quadrilaterals, and the concept of volume in the context of right rectangular prisms (boxes).
Here is a list of manipulatives that are needed or recommended for grade 5.
