5th Grade Math at CMS

Week of September 21-25

Upcoming Unit 1 Assessment

We will begin reviewing for the Unit 1 Assessment this week. The assessment will be on Friday. The concepts below will be assessed.

  • Order of Operations
  • Multiplication (multi-digit factors) any strategy can be used
  • Division (multi-digit divisors and dividends) any strategy can be used.
  • Number Pattern Recognition

To review for the assessment, assignments have been made in Moby Max. The website for that is www.mobymax.com. Your child has a username and password for this website.

If your child is not fluent with the basic multiplication facts, please help you child study them at home. Moby Max also offers practice in this area. We will be working a lot with multiplication and division this year, and it is extremely important that all students know the basic facts.

After the Unit 1 Assessment is complete, we will move on to Unit 2, which is decimals. We will use all four operations when working with the decimals.
