5th Grade Common Core Resources
Here you will find all fifth grade resources to guide and support mathematics teaching and learning.
These resources are organized by mathematical strand and refer to specific Common Core math content standards.
Operations and Algebraic Thinking (OA)
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them.Problems of the Month
Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane.Problems of the MonthPerformance Assessment Tasks
Number and Operations in Base Ten (NBT)
Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.Problems of the MonthPerformance Assessment Tasks
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.Problems of the Month
Number and Operations - Fractions (NF)
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators.Problems of the MonthPerformance Assessment Tasks
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.Problems of the MonthPerformance Assessment Tasks
Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (a/b = a ? b). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.Problems of the MonthPerformance Assessment Tasks
Measurement and Data (MD)
Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates.Performance Assessment Tasks
