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. | Instructional Strategy, Reference Materials Grade Level: 5 | |

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. | Instructional Strategy, Problem Set, Reference Materials, Video Grade Level: 5 | |

This page provides examples of 5th Grade Number (Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations in Base Ten, and Number Operations-Fractions) 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 the 5th Grade Number Activities listed are in PDF format. | Activity, Game Grade Level: 5 | |

This Java applet displays the multiplication of two fractions as an overlaying of rectangular areas. The left rectangle illustrates the left fraction as a horizontal fraction bar; the right rectangle shows the right fraction as a vertical fraction bar; and the middle rectangle represents their overlay. To change the numerator or denominator of the multiplicands, click a digit slightly off-center (left to decrease, right to increase). | Demonstration, Interactive Media Grade Level: 3, 4, 5 | |
