5th Grade Mathematics

5th Grade Mathematics

Academic Year Mathematics

Students complete their study of the arithmetic of fractions, decimals, and negative integers. They are also introduced to topics in geometry, number theory, statistics, and beginning algebra through lessons on three-dimensional solids, factors and multiples, statistics and data, sequences, and ratios. As with our earlier elementary school classes, we include challenging word problems and puzzles to teach students mathematical modeling and deductive reasoning.

After completing Grade 5 Mathematics, students are ready to start building a solid foundation for algebra in Prealgebra.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our 5th Grade Mathematics course.
"General coaching classes at many academic training centers stress repetition of the concept until a student grasps it thoroughly. At AoPS Academy, they go far beyond repetition. Their highly qualified instructors do a great job at teaching fundamental concepts to students at much greater depth, and challenge them to walk that extra mile by presenting them with more complex problems to solve. It provides a great learning experience in a friendly, fun, yet competitive and challenging environment. They provide their students with a combination of excellent instructional curriculum along with amazing online tools. AoPS Academy also encourages students to take part in various competitions. Overall they do an incredible job imparting a deep knowledge of both math and language arts to all of their students, and AoPS Academy sets them on a path towards their career goals. We are happy to be part of AoPS Academy family!"
