Learning Topics

 

 

Topic 9: Apply Understanding of Division to Divide Fractions

 

5.NF.B.3, 5.NF.B.7a, 5.NF.B.7b, 5.NF.B.7c

 

In this topic, your student will be learning how to interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator and show quotients as fractions and mixed numbers.  He or she will solve real-world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions.  A fraction with a numerator o 1 is a unit fraction.

Topic 10: Understand Volume

5MD.C.3a, 5.MD.C.3b, 5.MD.C.4, 5.MD.C.5a, 5.MD.C.5b, 5.MD.C.5c

In this topic, your student is learning about volume.  He or she will  learn how to find the volume of a rectangular prism, then use that understanding to formulate a plan to find the volume of a solid figure that is the combination of two or more rectangular prisms.  You student will also use models to develop the formula for volume and to recognize a cube with a side length of one unit as a unit cube having one cubic unit of volume.  This will give them the skills necessary to solve problems involving volume, the area of the base of a prism multiplied by the height of the prism.

 Topic 11: Convert Measurements

5.MD.A.1, 5.NBT.A.2, 5.NBT.B.5, 5.NBT.B.6

Your student is continuing to develop his or her understanding of customary and metric units of length, capacity, weight, and mass.  This topic focuses on converting among different sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system.  Your student will use this understanding in solving multi-step and rea-world problems.
