5th Grade Mathematics
Students complete their study of the arithmetic of fractions, decimals, and negative integers. They are also introduced to topics in geometry, number theory, statistics, and beginning algebra through lessons on three-dimensional solids, factors and multiples, statistics and data, sequences, and ratios. As with our earlier elementary school classes, we include challenging word problems and puzzles to teach students mathematical modeling and deductive reasoning.
After completing Grade 5 Mathematics, students are ready to start building a solid foundation for algebra in Prealgebra.
