• General Course Information

    We will continue following the Florida Standards.


    Mathematics: We have finished focus standard MAFS5.G.2.3 and MAFS5.G.2.4, we will be working on focus standard MAFS5.MD3.3, MAFS5.MD3.4 and MAFS53.5 which all relate to VOLUME

    Curent Focus Standard:

    MAFS.5. MD 3.3-  Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures nd understand concepts of volume measurement.

    a. A cute with side length 1 unit is called a unit cube

    b. A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units.

    MAFS.5.MD 3.4 - Measure volumes by counting cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft. and improvised units.

    MAFS.5.MD 3.5 - Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solv real world and mathematical problems involving volume

    a. Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with whole number side lengths by packing it with unit cubes, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths, equivalently by multiplying the height by the area of the base.

    b. Apply the formulas V = l x w x h and V = B x h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole number edge lengths in the context of solvng real world and mathematical problems.

    c. Recognize volume as additive. Find volumes of solid figures composed of two nonoverlapping right rectangular prisms by adding the volumes of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.


    Mathematics: We have finished focus standard MAFS5.MD1.1 and MAFS5.MD.2.2, we will be working on MAFS5.G.2.3 and MAFS5.G.2.4 

    Curent Focus Standard:

    MAFS.5.G.2.3 - Undertand the attributes belonging to a category of two-dimentional figures also belonging to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.

    MAFS.5.G.2.4 - Classify and organize two-dimensional figures into Venn diagrams based on the attributes of the figures.

    Focus Standard:

    MAFS.5.MD.2.2 - Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems invlving information presented in line plots.

    MAFS.5.MD.1.1 - Convert among different-sized standard measurement units (i.e., km, m, cm,; kg g; lb, oz; l, ml; hr, min, sec) within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to .05 m), and use these conversions in solving multistep, real world problems.


    Science:  We have finished all of our standards, so now we will do some review on Nature of Science.

    We have finished adaptations and environmental changes

    Focus Standard:

    SC5.L.17.1 - Compare and contrast adaptations displayed by animals and plants that enable them to survive in different environments such as life cycle variations, animal behaviors, and physical characteristics.

    SC5.L.15.1 - Describe how, when the environment changes, differences between individuals allow some plants and animals to survive and reproduce while others need to move to a new location.
