Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Grade(s) 5 resources related to the following standard:
Measurement and Data
Represent and interpret data.
2. Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. For example, given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers, find the amount of liquid each beaker would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally.

This 68-page pdf document demonstrates the connections between the CCSS content standards and the mathematical practice standards. It is a compilation of research, standards from several states, instructional strategies, common misconceptions, and examples for each standard at the grade 5 level. It is intended to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. Additional flip books are cataloged separately for grades K-4.

This web page provides links to resources aligned to the CCSS that guide and support fifth grade mathematics teaching and learning. Tasks developed by the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS), Problems of the Month, (POM home page is cataloged separately) and videos of public lessons and number talks developed by the Noyce Foundation are included. The tasks were designed to measure students' ability to solve non-routine problems, explain and justify their solutions, and promote high level thinking skills. They include the scoring rubric, student responses, and discussion of student understanding and misconceptions. Resources are listed for specific grade 5 standards and are also organized by progression for an alternate search route.

This page provides examples of 5th Grade Measurement and Data activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. A CCSS standard is stated and the possible activities are listed below and linked. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group or whole class settings and are designed to elicit a range of responses and provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. Instructions for each task are typed in large print and written in child-friendly language to enable students to work on activities independently after a brief introduction to the task. All files for 5th Grade Measurement and Data Activities listed are in PDF format.

In this line plot activity students measure circular buttons to the nearest eighth of an inch and then measure again the same buttons to the nearest quarter inch. Learners create two line plots of their length and draw conclusions about these line plots. Key concepts involved in this task are measuring to a quarter and an eighth of an inch, creating a line plot, and determining which line plot is more accurate.

This Flash applet allows students to create a variety of graphs: line graph, pie chart, bar graph, area graph and x-y plot. Each type provides a variety of layout and design options. Users enter data and labels and choose data parameters. Completed graphs may be printed, saved, and/or emailed. The accompanying tutorial provides general information about graphs and explains how to use the applet.

This narrative document describes the progression of Categorical and Measurement Data across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for data collection, display, and analysis; beginning with categorical data in grades k-2 and progressing to measurement data in grades 2-5.

This task provides an opportunity for learners to practice adding unit fractions whose denominators is a factor of the others. Two random cards are chosen, added using equivalent fractions and their sums recorded on a line plot. At the completion of the task students reflect on the results. and make predictions about how the activity could be altered to get different results.

This document provides descriptions and examples of what each Mathematics Common Core standard means a Grade Five student will know, understand and be able to do. This "unpacking" of the standards provides instructional guidelines and was developed to assist North Carolina educators teach the Mathematics Common Core (Standard Course of Study).
