Rainier Elementary uses Bridges in Mathematics as a district upper elementary curriculum.
This year, in fifth grade, students will focus on the three critical areas specified by the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics in Grade 5: (1) developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions, and developing understanding of the multiplication of fractions and of division of fractions, and developing understanding of the multiplication of fractions and and of division of fractions in limited cases. (2) extending division to two-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system and developing understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with the whole number and decimal operations; and (3) developing understanding of volume.
Please use the resources below at will to help motivate and encourage your student to become fluent with 5th grade math concepts and skills. I truly believe with more practice students are paved an easier pathway to success!
Your fifth grade student has access to Xtramath. I have created a class and given login information in our greet and grab bags. Please log in weekly with your student to have them work on their math fluency in fifth grade. This is one of the most important foundations in math. Your student will need continues practice to keep their skills fresh and fast. When logging in, please make sure you have actually logged in. The website will allow you a few rounds with out logging in and they will not be counted on my end as complete unless you are fully logged in.
The fifth grade team has purchased IXL again! We are true believers in this program and have used it both at home and in class for years now. This program gives your student access to various standard aligned practice questions. It also offers your student explanations of questions they need more help or practice with. I have used this program with my own kids and have seen huge growth sense introducing it. I will assign standards for students to complete throughout the school year. Progress reports will be generated from here as well. Please feel free to have your student work problems from the 4th grade session if they need more or want more practice.

click above for math games from The Math Learning Center. these are thought provoking games that are intended to deepen your students understand of mathematical concepts, building on previous mathematical knowledge. Please decide to either start with the previous games as a review / reminder, then move on to your grade level games only.
