5th Grade Math with Mrs. Aldridge
Geometry Essential Vocabulary
Quarter 3: Fractions
Quarter 2: Powers of 10
We started out the year in math reviewing powers of 10 and solving multiplication and division problems using Area Model and Standard Algorithm. Have your child demonstrate the Area Model method and explain the rectangle sections, expanded notations and partial products. We are also spending a lot of time using Math Talk to help students understand the “How” and “Why” of each strategy taught in class.
Quarter 1: Decimals & Place Value
One focus in math is on place value with decimals. Students have used Base 10 blocks and Base 10 Grids to understand place value to the thousands and thousandths. They have compared numbers and written numbers in standard form, word form and expanded form. See the attached parent math guides.
