 Fifth Grade District 15 Standards 2012-2013 5.NBT.4 I can round decimals to a specified place value. 5.NBT.5 I can fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm. 5.G.3 5.G.4 I can identify and classify 2-D figures based upon attributes and group into subcategories. 5.NBT.6 I can divide whole numbers with up to 4-digit dividends and 2-digit divisors, and illustrate and explain my solution. 5.NBT.7 I can add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths. 5.NBT.1 I can show the value of a digit and how its value changes as I move one place value to the right and one place value to the left. 5.NF.3 I can interpret a fraction as a division problem and solve word problems, where the answer is in the form of fractions or a mixed number. (Fraction, decimal or percent form.) 5.NBT.3 I can read, write, and compare decimals to the thousandths using expanded notation and/or exponential notation. 5.NF.1 I can add and subtract fractions including mixed numbers with unlike denominators and put into simplest form. 5.NF.2 I can solve addition and subtraction word problems involving fractions and use benchmark fractions to estimate and mentally assess solutions. 5.NBT.2 I can explain patterns when multiplying and dividing by powers of 10 (decimals and exponents.) 5.OA.1 I can evaluate (solve) expressions using Order of Operations. 5.OA.2 I can represent a calculation expressed verbally with a numerical expression and analyze without solving. 5.MD.2 I can make a line plot from a given set of unit fraction measurements and use operations on this data to solve problems. 5.NF.4 I can multiply a fraction or a whole number by a fraction. 5.NF.5 I can interpret and model how the magnitude of products change when multiplying by fractions greater or less than 1. 5.NF.6 I can solve real-world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers. 5.NF.7 I can apply division principles and divide unit fractions by whole numbers, and the reverse. 5.G.1 5.G.2 I can use the basic coordinate graphing system to solve and represent real-world problems. 5.OA.3 I can generate, identify, and graph the relationship between two sets of ordered pairs. 5.MD.3 I can recognize attributes of volume. 5.MD.4 I can measure and calculate volume of solid figures. 5.MD.5 I can relate volume to addition and/or multiplication. 5.MD.1 I can convert measurements within single systems (customary and metric); use to solve real-world problems.

Major clusters require greater emphasis based on depth of ideas, time they take to master, and/or importance to future mathematics.
