**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
