Ms. MacAskill's Classroom: Math Resources

Overview

There are 6 Eureka math modules that we will work through this school year.  These modules build upon each other and it naturally provides students with opportunities to work towards mastery in the 5th grade math standards through the course of the year.  Students will tackle complex word problems using the Read, Draw, Write strategy.  Special emphasis of this strategy and what it looks like at the 5th grade level will be showcased in class and referenced often.

Module 1: Place Value and Decimal Fractions

Module 2: Multi- Digit Whole Number and Decimal Fraction Operations

Module 3: Addition and Subtraction of Fractions

Module 4: Multiplication and Division of Fractions and Decimal Fractions

Module 5: Addition and Multiplication with Volume and Area

Module 6: Problem Solving with the Coordinate Plane

Eureka Family Support

Below are Parent Tip Sheets that have been created by Eureka.  These sheets provide an overview of each topic and include suggested strategies and models, connections to previous learning, key vocabulary, and tips to support learning at home.


Module 1 

Students continue to deepen their understandings of the patterns in the base ten system from Grade 4.  5th graders will work with place value that includes decimals to the thousandths place.  Students will extend their knowledge of the relationships between and among adjacent places on the place value chart.  Towards the end of the module, 5th graders will apply new understandings as they reason and perform decimal operations through the hundredths place. 

 

ST Math

Just like in previous years, students will journey through ST Math with Jiji.  In 5th grade, students should be spending 90 minutes (between home and school) a week on ST Math.  They should also be averaging at least 60 puzzles a week.  In order for students to stay on target with ST Math and complete the program by the end of the school year, students will work towards the monthly puzzle and objective goals that have been set by the district's math coaches.
