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.
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) videos are designed to support states, schools, and teachers in the implementation of selected math standards. Each video is an audiovisual resource that focuses on one or more specific standards through examples and illustrations geared to enhancing understanding. The intent of each content-focused video is to clarify the meaning of the individual standard rather than to be a guide on how to teach each standard, although the examples can be adapted for instructional use.
This task presents a real-life application of dividing a whole number by a unit fraction. The first two parts can be solved using reasoning and the third part will bring about more divergent thinking for classroom discussion. The context of this task also provides for the development of the connection between multiplication and division.
The purpose of this task is to provide students with a concrete situation they can model by dividing a whole number by a unit fraction.
Students will determine ways to ensure correct amounts of various ingredients are added to a recipe given a limited supply of measuring cup sizes. 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 write a story to illustrate problems and determine each quotient using a diagram. Students use multiplication and division to check their work.
This workbook was created through the efforts of three instructors at Scottsdale Community College in Scottsdale, Arizona. Any individual may download and utilize a digital copy of this workbook for free.
This short video and interactive assessment activity is designed to teach fifth graders about dividing whole numbers by fractions.
This task requires students to recognize both "number of groups unknown" and "group size unknown" division problems in the context of a whole number divided by a unit fraction.
This task requires students to reason through different contexts of story problem to determine whether or not 3 divided by 1/2 would be a correct solution equation. The situations in these story problems allow for the discussion of the common misconception about when 3 divided by 2 or 3 divided by 1/2 is an appropriate solution path.
CK-12's Grade 5 Elementary Math is a series of videos and interactive videos designed to teach basic math concepts to 5th graders. Concepts covered include Multiplication and Division, Place Value, Multiple Operations and Grouping, Decimals, Time, Fractions, Money, Measurement, and Geometry.
The task requires students to arrange a given set of numbers (each used only once), operations, quotients, and products to make all the equations true. Students are then required to explain how they determined the correct number arrangements without performing the operations. 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.
In this lesson, student explore fractions using themselves as manipulatives. Teacher reads the students a story about a King that divides his "subjects" into different groups creating fractions. Students discuss the fractional parts that are created and work in pairs to place small squares into equal groups.
