Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Grade(s) 5 resources related to the following standard:
Geometry
Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
1. Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g., x-axis and x-coordinate, y-axis and y-coordinate).

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 interactive Flash applet provides practice in locating a specific point in the first quadrant only of the coordinate plane. The student is given the ordered pair and clicks on the arrow keys to guide Billy to the hidden grub at that location. The player races against the clock to feed Billy ten times as quickly as possible.

This interactive Flash applet provides practice locating a specific point in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. The student is given an ordered pair and clicks on the arrow keys to guide Billy to a grub hidden at that location. The player races against the clock to feed Billy ten times as quickly as possible.

This narrative document describes the progression of Geometry across the K-6 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 elementary geometry in three categories, namely, geometric shapes and their categories, composing and decomposing geometric shapes, and spatial relations and spatial structuring.

This interactive Java applet allows users to plot a "house" on a -10 by 10 coordinate plane. A "view" mode allows users to enter an ordered pair and move the house to that location. The "guess" mode randomly plots the house on the plane and the user must enter the ordered pair for its location. An optional scoring feature allows users to keep track of the number correct.

This interactive Java applet lets users explore the coordinate plane through the use of a Geoboard. The user places bands on the board where each peg is at an integer coordinate. Once a band has been placed, the applet outputs the perimeter and area of the shape or, if bands are placed as line segments, the applet outputs the distance and slope of the segment.
