In fifth grade, math is a useful tool for exploring and understanding the world around us. We can use it to construct and build, answer questions, and do sophisticated calculations. At the same time, math concepts are more abstract. While Wild Math Fifth Grade contains many hands-on outdoor activities like in the younger levels of Wild Math, it also balances the need at this level to practice more abstract computations in writing.
The skills typically covered in fifth grade math are listed, followed by extensive explanations on how to teach the concept. The fifth grade contains more guidance on how to teach each topic than prior levels because the math skills are more complex and complicated than in prior levels. These more complex topics often have several examples and have a new feature called “quick practice problems”. These problems are an easy way to practice computations (sometimes in a hands-on way and sometimes written practice depending on skill and method) and check comprehension of the new skill before moving on to activities. Most chapters also have several sections with activities, projects, and word problems to further practice each skill. The word problems can be acted out or done solely in the math notebook depending on the student’s needs.
