5th Grade – Math

God created humans with a rational and inquiring mind. He blessed them with the ability to count, tell time and make change. In Mathematics we will explore and develop this God given gift systematically. As the Bible says “precept upon precept, line upon line” (Isaiah 28:10), students will systematically build up their knowledge of Mathematics. As they learn the different disciplines of Mathematics students will recognize the logic and order God imbued in the world and by implication that God is a god of logic and order. They will develop a greater understanding and appreciation of God through their study of mathematics.

Course Objectives
Students will learn to take responsibility for their maths learning thereby learning to take responsibility for their learning action and lives.(RUC) Students will be able to add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers, decimals, and fractions, and they will understand when to use these computations(ET). They will be able to read a maths problem and understand what is being asked. They will also be able to identify the correct operation needed to solve the problem. They will use manipulatives (NLL). They will apply maths to real live(NLL) They will be able to explain mathematical principles both in writing and speaking.(DC) They will interact with each other and learn to play fairly and work together. Learning different currencies and measurements from around the world.(SCW)
