This web page will be a great place to check for Math and Science updates, resources, and assignments. Please check back weekly for updates.
The students will engage in a variety of learning activities in our mathematics classes, including large group math lessons, small group hands-on activities, independent written work, and activity sheets in order to provide students with a balanced math program and inquiry activities to deepen their understanding of mathematical concepts. Emphasis will be placed on developing a conceptual understanding of essential mathematical strands, including Number Sense, Patterns and Relations, Statistics and Probability, and Shape and Space. Application of their understanding will also be applied to develop problem solving strategies. This year, students will focus on developing their basic fact fluency. We aim for students to fluently, flexibly, and efficiently solve basic addition facts to 20 and the corresponding subtraction facts as well as multiplication facts to 9x9. Students will be provided with a variety of opportunities to develop all of the above skills. Further ways for you to support at home will be provided as we progress through the units on our Grade 5 website
