  • .Hello parents! This week we will begin our lesson in Math on Place Value. Our weeks skill will be 5. NBT.3 

Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.

a. Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and

expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) +

2 × (1/1000).

b. Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place,

using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.


Hello parents and students! This week we begin learning about Division patterns of 10s-Whole and Multiplication, 10-w/Decimals, Powers of 10, Converting among different sized standard measurement units.

 

5.NBT.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left (e.g., "In the number 3.33, the underlined digit represents 3/10, which is 10 times the amount represented by the digit to its right (3/100) and is 1/10 the amount represented by the digit to its left (3)

5.NBT.2 Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.

5.MD.1 Convert among different sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (customary and metric).
