About the Math Sorts

  • This resource includes 28 math sorts, one for each standard/substandard for 5th grade common core.

  • The math sorts are included in printable format and a digital format for use with Google Slides.

  • Answer keys for the math sorts are included in the PDF file.

About the Printable 5th Grade Math Sorts

Each printable math sort is 2 pages: 1 page for the pockets and directions and one page for the sorting cards.

Using the Printable Math Sorts

These sorts work perfectly in an interactive notebook, but would also work in a center. You could even glue the pockets to a file folder and create an instant sorting game for fun review. I have included a few generic recording sheets if you wish to go with this option.

Printing Tip: Print the sorts with four pockets at 70% and the sorts with three pockets at 80% to fit all the pockets on one page in a spiral notebook.

About the Digital 5th Grade Math Sorts

The digital math sorts are included for use with Google Slides.

The math sorts are all separated by skill. The links to access the digital math sorts can be found on pages 3 and 4.

A digital answer key is also included for easy grading of the math sorts or to have students self-check.

The digital math sorts can be used as a digital math center, digital homework option, or for distance learning.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 0, and given the rule “Add 6” and the starting number 0, generate terms in the resulting sequences, and observe that the terms in one sequence are twice the corresponding terms in the other sequence. Explain informally why this is so.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘢/𝘣 + 𝘤/𝘥 = (𝘢𝘥 + 𝘣𝘤)/𝘣𝘥.)
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
