EQ – How do we divide by a 2-digit divisor?

Online Extra Credit Opportunity (Available 12/6-12/13)

The next math extra credit assignment is a review for next Thursday’s test (12/13). If your child completes the Topic 5 Test (earning over an 80%), they will receive 5 extra credit points on their test. I am including the website and sign in information below.

Website – https://www.pearsonsuccessnet.com/

•        Username- Add “srcs” to the end of the student’s AR username.

•        Password- Add math to the end of the student’s AR password.

•       Capitalization matters, so make sure to keep everything lowercase.

•        For example, for Patricia Pitman…

Username – ppitmansrcs

Password – 1616math

If your child cannot find the paper that was sent home with their user name and password, please let me know. It should be behind the math tab in their binder.

Once your child is signed in they will click “To Do” in the top right corner.  They will then click on Topic 5 Test  The assignment is open until Thursday (12/13).  They do not need to print off the test. I will be able to see who has completed the test when I login.  This a wonderful weekend assignment (if you have extra time) OR Wednesday afternoon/evening review before Thursday’s test. 

Data –

Graphs and Analyzing the Data

Mean, Median, Mode, Range, and Outliers

EQ – How do I find the mean, median, mode, and range?

EQ – How can line plots be used to represent data and answer questions?
EQ – How can numbers be used to describe certain data sets?

 

Online Extra Credit Opportunity

Multiplication Properties & Exponents

1.) Associative Property of Multiplication – You can change the grouping of the factors. The product stays the same.  (3 x 4) x 4  = 48               3 x (4 x 4) = 48

2.) Commutative Property of Multiplication – You can change the order of the factors. The product stays the same.  7 x 4 = 28              4 x 7 = 28

3.) Zero Property of Multiplication – When one of the factors in 0, the product is always 0.   3 x 0 = 0                0 x 3 = 0

4.) Identity Property of Multiplication – When one of the factors in 1, the product is always the other factor.

5.) Exponential Form – A way to write a number or expression in a more compact structure using exponents.

6.) Squaring a Number – When you multiply a number by itself.

7.) Base Number – A number that is to be raised to a power.

8.) Perfect Square – A number that is the product of two identical factors.

9.) Exponent or Power – A number used to indicate how many times to multiply the base by itself.

 

 

Unit 2

Adding & Subtracting Whole Numbers and DECIMALS

1.) Digits – The symbols used to show numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

2.) Value – The number a digit represents, which is determined by the position of the digit.

3.) Standard form – A common way of writing a number with commas separating groups of three digits (a period) starting from the right. Example 3,458

4.) Expanded form – A way to write a number that shows the place value of each digit. Example 3,000 + 500 + 60 + 2

5.)  Word form – A way to write a number using words. Three-thousand, five-hundred, sixty-two

6.) Equivalent decimals – Decimals that name the same amount. Example: 0.7 = 0.70

7.) Commutative Property of Addition – the order of addends can be changed and the sum remains the same.         2 + 3.7 = 3.7 + 1.2

8.) Associative Property of Addition  – addends can be regrouped and the sum remains the same.   1 + (3 + 5) = (1 + 3) + 5

9.) Rounding is a process that determines which multiple of 10, 100, 1,000, etc., a number is closest to.

 

Unit 1 – Order of Operations

Order of Operations Vocabulary

  1. Order of Operations – a mathematical rule that determines the order in which to compute. 1.) Parentheses  2.) Exponents  3.) Multiplication/Division 4.)Addition/Subtraction
  1. Equation – a number sentence with equal amounts on either side of the equal sign.
  2. Parentheses – a grouping symbol used in expressions to indicate an operation that should be completed first when solving. 4 + (9 x 12)
  3. Brackets – a grouping symbol that is used in pairs to indicate to the mathematician which computation to perform first. [2 + (3 x 4)]
  4. Braces – a grouping symbol used to indicate numbers in a set. {3, 6, 9, 12, 15}
  5. Expression – a number sentence without an equal sign. 11 x 4 + 2
  6. Variable – a symbol to represent a number you do not know yet. 19 – n = 12
  7. Term – a number, variable, product, or quotient in an expression or equation 9 x 8 = n
  8. Evaluate – to find the value of a numerical expression 12 x n = 36, n = 3

 

Mathematics—Mrs. Pitman

In the Fifth Grade Mathematics course students review and advance in general concepts: whole numbers, place values from billions to thousandths, graphing, decimals, fractions, measurement, and geometry.  The course gives an introduction of algebraic concepts and further development of ratio, variables, probability, averages, and order of operations.  Real-world applications and problem-solving logic are used to build math confidence and provide an enjoyable learning environment.  EnVision Math and numerous learning manipulatives are the primary resources used. First in Math is also available to reinforce solid foundational mathematical skills.

Math Grading:Classwork/Homework = 35%

Quizzes = 30%

Tests = 35%

Teaching Strategies: 

Differentiation: Whole group, small group discussion, one-on-one conferencing, peer tutoring, shared inquiry, graphic organizers, reading aloud, vocabulary fold and cut, note cards, and illustrations.

Technology Integration: Smartboard applications and ELMO for peer review.

Biblical Concepts for Math:

  • Two-step equations remind us that we live in an intelligently designed and ordered world.
  • God is the ultimate designer of symmetry, and lines of symmetry reveal His love for balanced design and orderliness.
  • God’s attribute of infinity is seen in mathematics.
  • Mathematics reminds us that we live in an intelligently designed and ordered world.

Student Work: Student will learn through lots of collaborative learning, small group and independent math tasks, math games, homework, exemplars, formative assessments through the use of manipulatives, quizzes and end of unit tests.
