• 5th Grade Math Fluency

Students should come to 5th grade with a great foundation of the concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  5th graders will be expected to fluently multiply multi-digit numbers (2X2, 3X2, 4X2, and 3X3) (5.NBT.5) and fluently divide with two digit divisors. (5.NBT.6)

Each test will be given as a timed test.   The results are interpreted as follows:
 Multi-Digit Multiplication  2X2 (4) , 3X2 (4) 1st nine weeks  8 problems in 16 minutes Rubric 7 – 8 Correct Exceeds Standards 4 5 – 6 Correct Satisfactory 3 3 – 4 Correct Needs Improvement 2 2 or less Correct Unsatisfactory 1 Multi-Digit Multiplication  2X2 (1),  3X2 (1), and 4X2 (4), and (4 digit dividend by a 2 digit divisor) with and without fractional remainders (2) 2nd nine weeks 8 problems in 16 minutes 7 – 8 Correct Exceeds Standards 4 5 – 6 Correct Satisfactory 3 3 – 4 Correct Needs Improvement 2 2 or less Correct Unsatisfactory 1 Multi-Digit Multiplication         2 X 2 (1), 3 X 2 (1),      4 X 2 (1), 3 X 3 (1), and (4 digit dividend divided by a 2 digit divisor) with or without fractional remainders (4) 3rd nine weeks 8 problems in 16 minutes 7 – 8 Correct Exceeds Standard 4 5 – 6 Correct Satisfactory 3 3 – 4 Correct Needs Improvement 2 2 or less Correct Unsatisfactory 1 Multi-Digit Multiplication     4 x 2 (4)  Double Digit Division (4 digit dividend divided by a 2 digit divisor) with or without fractional remainders (4) 4th nine weeks 8 problems in 20 minutes 7 – 8 Correct Exceeds Standard 4 5 - 6 Correct Satisfactory 3 3 – 4 Correct Needs Improvement 2 2 or less Correct Unsatisfactory 1

*We want students entering the 6th grade to have fluency of the 4 operations (+, -, X, and ÷) including fractions and decimals.*

Students should be flexible in their number sense and be able to apply their knowledge to mathematical problems and situations.
