This is a task from the Illustrative Mathematics website that is one part of a complete illustration of the standard to which it is aligned. Each task has at least one solution and some commentary that addresses important asects of the task and its potential use. Here are the first few lines of the commentary for this task: The table shows four people who earn the typical amount for their education level.

These family letters provide an overview of the mathematics content and strategies in 5th Grade Cluster 5. This is remixable and can be modified based on your own school's and district's contexts.
This resource accompanies our Rethink 5th Grade Math course. It includes ideas for use, ways to support exceptional children, ways to extend learning, digital resources and tools, tips for supporting English Language Learners and students with visual and hearing impairments. There are also ideas for offline learning.
This choice board will work best after teaching all of the NBT standards as it includes choices for multiplying whole numbers, dividing whole numbers, adding and subtracting decimals, and dividing decimals.
Day 1- Teacher will begin lesson by going over the learning purpose - that the weight of an object after an interaction is the same weight it would be before (the sum of parts equals the whole). Students will be given a small canvas (i.e. - small cloth canvas, cardstock, cardboard, etc.). Teachers will allow students to use various materials to create a masterpiece (i.e. - paint, buttons, pom poms, etc.). Each group would be tasked to weigh objects BEFORE adding them to their masterpiece (for paint or other consumables - weight bottle before and after use). Students would TRY to prove the teacher wrong by saying that the sum of their masterpiece was greater or less than the sum of its parts. Day 2 - Students would present whether they proved the teacher right or wrong, then peers would analyze their work by asking clarifying questions.

For this practice worksheet, students are computing and solving real-world problems using addition of decimals to the thousandths place. Answers are located here: https://corbettmathsprimary.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/adding-decimals-answers.pdf
In this lesson, students apply their knowledge of addition & subtraction of decimals in order to create a holiday wish list given a budget. Students will then find an estimated price and the exact price for the items on their list, which they compare to their budget amount.
This lesson focuses on subtraction of quantities to the thousandths place. The context of this lesson involves the batting averages of players. This is remixable if you add supports for the range of learners in classrooms.
This activity requires that students have an understanding of the impact (x10/÷10) the movement of a decimal left or right has on a quantity. Students explore the standard algorithm for multiplication of decimal numbers as they begin the task by solving various equations that utilize the same digits, which elicits the same digits for a product. The second part of the task involves analysis of a calculation error when adding sales tax. This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
Students create their own anemometers instruments for measuring wind speed. They see how an anemometer measures wind speed by taking measurements at various school locations. They also learn about different types of anemometers, real-world applications, and how wind speed information helps engineers decide where to place wind turbines.
