Grade 5

The grade five program will help you and your child become comfortable with the underlying principles of mathematics.  You and your child will become familiar with the evidence of math in daily life through a deeper understanding of number sense.

Everything Included:

  • Grade 5 Resources Books
  • Dominoes
  • Ruler
  • Playing Cards
  • Dice
  • Calaculator
  • Angle Ruler
Grade 5 Resource Books are supplied for both children and adults providing a year's worth of material and enrichment problems and clear explanations of each solution.
Videos are available to registered customers and provide additional support for using the program and all of its components.
Dominoes are used at each grade level to generate whole numbers, fractions, and decimals to be used in numerous problems.
Playing Cards are used to generate numbers for calculations, and to predict probabilities of events.
Ruler is used to demonstrate linear measure, to find fractional parts of inches, and to estimate and calculate lengths.
Dice are used in generating numbers for calculations, fractions, and ratios. A 6-sided cube with numbers instead of dots is used to help the younger child in generating numbers.
Calculator is used to check answers and to solve equations.
Angle Ruler used to measure and construct angles in geometry problems.
