This workbook is supplemental, and provides additional practice for the topics in the curriculum. I recommend you only purchase it once you are sure the student does need supplemental practice. Learn more.
At the heart of the curriculum are two student worktexts (A and B), each covering about half a year of maths 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 children (if they can read) to teach themselves and to learn directly from the books.
You will also get separate answer keys, chapter tests, additional cumulative revisions (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.
This curriculum is essentially the same as the US version of Math Mammoth Grade 5, only customised for the international audience in these aspects:
In moneyrelated word problems, the symbol used is "$" (dollar).
The US version of the curriculum is aligned to the Common Core Standards, which means this curriculum may not be properly aligned to the fifth grade standards in your country. However, you can probably find material for any missing topics in neighbouring grades, which means you can simply reorder the material to solve most incompatibilities between different standards.
The fifth grade is time for fractions and decimals, in particular. We study fractions and decimals and operations with them 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 and 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 pan balance. Students also do a fair amount of problem solving using the visual bar model.
The fourth chapter is about decimals and some of the operations with decimals (the rest will be studied in chapter 6). Fifth grade is the time when students learn all the basic operations with decimals. In this chapter, we focus on place value with decimals, addition and subtraction of decimals, and multiplication and division of decimals by whole numbers. Multiplying decimals by decimals and dividing decimals by decimals is covered in chapter 6.
In chapter 5, students graph points and patterns in the coordinate grid, and learn about line graphs and average (mean). These topics tie in both with graphing in the context of algebra, and with statistical graphs.
Chapter 6 continues our study of decimals. The focus is on multiplying decimals by decimals, dividing decimals by decimals, and conversions between measuring units.
Chapter 7 covers the addition and subtraction of fractions — another topic of focus for 5th grade, besides decimals. The most difficult topic of this chapter is adding and subtracting unlike fractions, which is done by first converting them to equivalent fractions with a common denominator.
In chapter 8, we study the multiplication and division of fractions from various angles.
Chapter 9 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).
Please also see the table of contents for 5A and 5B (in the sample files), which will let you see a detailed list of the topics covered.
Here is a list of manipulatives that are needed or recommended for grade 5.
