The major work of 5th grade math is multi-digit computation, especially multiplication and division, and fractions and decimals. We follow the DCPS Eureka Math curriculum, which breaks the year into 6 modules:
Module 1: Place Value
Module 2: Multiplication and Division
Module 3: Adding and Subtracting Fractions
Module 4: Multiplication and Division of Fractions
Module 5: Volume and Geometry
Module 6: Coordinate Plane
We use several programs in class that students can also access at home. We encourage students to use these programs at home if they are able.
Field Trips and Events
We are excited to partner with Live It, Learn It for two field trips this year, to Ford’s Theater and the Kreeger Museum. In addition, we often visit the museums on the National Mall. This year we also hope to bring students on a “big” trip to Gettysburg, PA. Finally, the highlight of the year for many is the annual overnight trip to Camp Fraser, in Great Falls, VA. This trip is usually in May.
