    Hi everyone! I have a question. What are fourth, fifth, and sixth graders learning in math at those grade levels? I have a differentiated lesson plan due at the end of the month and need to know what is taught in these grades to do my lesson. Thanks! :)

    I teach 4th and we spend most of the year getting the kids really fluent in multiplication and division of larger (thousands) numbers. We also do fractions, geometry, probability, and graphing. Our 5th grade moves into decimals, percents, and more in-depth frations (converting, simplifying, etc.)

    paheidi, there's probably some kind of document on the PA dept. of education Web site that spells out what it is that kids are supposed to learn in what grades. In California one consults the Content Standards document in math, which breaks the curriculum down by grade.

    Your state Department of Ed is really your best bet, as the specifics of what is taught in which grade can vary widely from place to place.

    I teach 5th Math in Alabama and we have to do Place Value to the billions, two/three digit multiplication, two divisor division, add/subtract/multiply/divide decimals, perimeter, area, measurement, probability, and a lot of things with fractions (multiplying, simplifying, etc)

    Thanks everyone! I never thought to look at the standards, but that would probably work the best. Thanks!
