These 87 lessons accompany and are based on Go Math textbook (5th Grade), with rich content and higher level questions. The lessons can stand on their own even if the instructor does not use Go Math, where alternative practice exercises can be utilized.

Purchasing this bundle will save you 20% versus buying each individual chapters.

Chapter 1

Students will explore multiplication and division by focusing on the relationship that one operation is the inverse of the other. They look for and make use of structure when they find patterns that connect the operations. Consider the following:

40 x 8 = 320 320 ÷ 40 = 8

8 x 40 = 320 320 ÷ 8 = 40

This relationship is an extension of the related facts students learned in previous grades.

Chapter 2

Understanding different meanings of division helps students make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Such understanding gives students strategies to make sense of situations. This, in turn, helps them persevere in finding solutions.

Chapter 3

Students add and subtract decimals using several models. Of particular importance is the place-value model represented with base-ten blocks. As students solve addition problems with base-ten blocks where the flat is equal to one, the long is equal to one-tenth and the small cube is equal to one-hundredth, they are led to see that when adding decimals, the hundredths can be combined with hundredths, the tenths with tenths, and so on. They see that similar reasoning can be applied to subtraction. These experiences help students to look for and make use of structure as they make sense of place-value algorithms for adding and subtracting decimals.

Chapter 4

These lessons, aligned to the Common Core Standard, provide a comprehensive approach to teach multiplying decimals for fifth grade students. Components include the AIM (or Essential Question), objective, common core standard, motivation, model/teach, guided practice, independent practice and summary.

Chapter 5

These lesson plans are recommended for January or February of the school year, to 5th Grade level and are aligned to the Common Core Standards. They cover dividing with decimals and are written utilizing the workshop model and problem-based model.

Chapter 6

**This unit covers dividing decimals to provide students with opportunities to make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Students make sense of problems when they model decimal division. The modeling helps them develop procedures for determining quotients. Eventually, students solve multistep problems involving decimal division. When they encounter difficult problems, they can use models to help them.

**Modeling operations helps students make sense of the procedures. Students make sense of procedures for dividing decimals by estimating the quotient using compatible numbers. This estimate can help the student place the decimal point after dividing. Exploring division with models and contexts and making sense of the placement of the decimal point after dividing will help students to understand how the decimal division algorithms work.

Decimal models can be used to show how to divide decimals by decimals.

Chapter 7

These lessons guide students to use models to multiply fractions, including numbers and then fractions and fractions, including mixed numbers. Students will be asked to use the area model to make sense of the algorithm for multiplying fractions. Students use appropriate tools strategically when they decide if it makes more sense to use an area model or the algorithm to determine the product.

Chapter 8

In this unit students will learn about dividing fractions by whole numbers and dividing whole numbers by fractions, they look for and make use of structure. They do this when they develop connections between whole-number division and fraction division, as well as between division expressions and related multiplication expressions. This builds a foundation for developing the fraction division algorithm.

Chapter 9

In this unit, students will graph number pairs on a coordinate grid. They will analyze patterns and then model those relationships using graphs. These experiences provide meaningful opportunities for students to model with mathematics. Early explorations, such as these, will lead students to make sense of more formal explorations in algebra in later grades like determining the slope of a line.

Chapter 10

Converting units of measure within the customary or the metric system provides students an opportunity to attend to precision. As they make conversions, they need to check the reasonableness of their results. Students who can apply the techniques on this page will be able to evaluate the reasonableness of their results.
