This problem reinforces the telling of time on a digital clock, and it requires students to work systematically. The number of 'times' the digit 5 appears in a 24-hour period is a matter of a solver's assumptions. Ideas for implementation, extension and support are included along with a printable poster. A link to an interactive Class Clock (cataloged separately) is provided.

This 68-page pdf document demonstrates the connections between the CCSS content standards and the mathematical practice standards. It is a compilation of research, standards from several states, instructional strategies, common misconceptions, and examples for each standard at the grade 5 level. It is intended to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. Additional flip books are cataloged separately for grades K-4.

This web page provides links to resources aligned to the CCSS that guide and support fifth grade mathematics teaching and learning. Tasks developed by the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS), Problems of the Month, (POM home page is cataloged separately) and videos of public lessons and number talks developed by the Noyce Foundation are included. The tasks were designed to measure students' ability to solve non-routine problems, explain and justify their solutions, and promote high level thinking skills. They include the scoring rubric, student responses, and discussion of student understanding and misconceptions. Resources are listed for specific grade 5 standards and are also organized by progression for an alternate search route.

In this series of three hands-on activities, students develop an understanding of the relationship between fractions, decimals, and percents based upon models of hundredths. Each activity requires students to display their one hundred pieces of candy in a different way: linear model, grid model (rectangular area), and region model (circle graph/pie chart). This lesson includes student worksheets, assessment questions, extension suggestions, and a link to a circle graph tool.

This interactive Java applet allows users to explore many types of polyhedra including the Platonic and Archimedean solids, as well as prisms and pyramids among other more advanced shapes. The shape can be rotated and viewed as a solid or a frame. Other tabs allow the user to use slider bars to animate cutting, unfolding to form nets, and other modeling options including truncating the shape. A link is also provided for a printable net of the shape. The resource loads on PC's only.
