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 lesson gives students practice in classifying triangles and measuring angles. Despite its title, the lesson explains, compares and contrasts acute, obtuse, right, scalene, isosceles and equilateral triangles. Students are given practice using a virtual protractor to aid in the classifications. A Teacher Guide (pdf) is available [see #5 at MathActive Lessons for Grades 5-6, cataloged separately]. The lessons list also includes links to Spanish, Navajo, and non-voiced versions of this lesson.

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 lesson and interactive applet lets students explore geometric relationships and make and test conjectures. The main task centers on identifying what distinguishes a rectangle from a more general parallelogram. Students manipulate both figures and look for comparisons. Suggestions for implementation and supplemental tasks are provided.

This interactive Java applet allows users to explore tessellations made from quadrilaterals. The user deforms a square into another quadrilateral, which then tiles the plane. The user can choose two colors for the tessellation. An information window provides data about the shape to be tiled, including: area, perimeter, coordinates for vertices, and side lengths.

This iOS app is an open-ended tool for exploring a variety of mathematical topics. Learners stretch colored bands around pegs to form line segments and polygons in order to make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, and fractions. Users can switch from a 25-peg board to an expanded 150-peg board and fill in the interior of shapes with transparent color.
