Eureka Math - Pacific 5th grade uses the Eureka (Great Minds) math curriculum, and follows the Common Core Standards. Our daily math lessons use a CGI (Cognitively Guided Instruction) approach which focuses on each student's development of a deeper understanding of both how problems are solved, and why various methods work. The content emphasis in 5th grade includes:- Developing fluency with all operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) with whole numbers and decimals.
- Developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions and developing an understanding of multiplication and division of fractions.
- Understanding volume.
- Interpreting and writing expressions, working with a coordinate plane, finding and evaluating patterns and relationships, interpreting graphs and data, converting measurements, and classifying 2-D shapes.
Throughout the year, students will be asked to demonstrate the following :mathematical practices- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- Model with mathematics.
- Use appropriate tools strategically.
