5th Grade Math

Grade 5 math uses the Envisions Math Program (Common Core version). The program also has an online component for home study.
The following topics will be the areas of focus:

Topic 1- Place Value (millions to thousandths)
Topic 2- Adding/Subtracting Decimals
Topic 3- Multiplying Whole Number
Topic 4- Dividing by 1 digit Divisors
Topic 5- Dividing by 2 digit Divisors
Topic 6- Multiplying Decimals
Topic 7- Dividing Decimals
Topic 8- Numerical Expressions, Patterns, and Relationships
Topic 9- Adding/Subtracting Fractions
Topic 10- Adding/Subtracting Mixed Numbers
Topic 11- Multiplying/Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers
Topic 12- Volume of Solids
Topic 13- Units of Measure
Topic 14- Data
Topic 15- Classifying Plane Figures
Topic 16- Coordinate Geometry

6th Grade Math

Curriculum Frameworks established by the Massachusetts Department of
Education. Students will use mathematical standards for problem solving,
communicating, reasoning and making connections to real world situations.

Mathematical terms and symbols will be reviewed and is a major part of the
course
• Making estimation will determine the reasonableness of an answer
• We use number sense and operations that relate decimals and fractions
• Major focus is on the relationships between decimals, fractions, ratios,
percent and proportions
• Patterns relationship to algebraic thinking is encouraged
• Data will be collected and organizing into charts and graphs that relate to
everyday life situations
• Appreciation of geometry and measurement as seen in our world is explored
• Statistics and probability as it relates to games and choices is practiced
• Problem solving strategies will be formulated to attack a wide variety of
situations
