Using Wixie to meet math standards in 5th grade

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Jan 24, 2022 6:15:00 AM

Students in 5th grade are deepening their understanding of place value, fractions, and decimals, as well as building fluency with operations and expressions and the coordinate plane. 

Wixie's curriculum library includes a range of math-focused templates you can use for formative assessment purposes or to support student thinking as they tackle complex math tasks in your classroom.

Teachers can assign Wixie activities directly to students, or customize any template to differentiate them for specific learners in their classroom. Instructions, both written and recorded, also show in Wixie for each template. You can also ask students to record their voice to explain their mathematical thinking.

Posted by Scott Loomis on Apr 5, 2021 5:15:00 AM

Second and third graders begin to demonstrate their knowledge of fractions by recognizing that fractions represent equal-sized parts of a whole. They do this with both numerical representations as well as models. Identifying and representing fractions is the first step toward comparing, identifying equivalent fractions, fractional computation and working with mixed numbers and improper fractions.
