##### 5th Grade Math Standards

Overview: Students extend their Grade 4 pattern work by working brieﬂy with two numerical patterns that can be related and examining these relationships within sequences of ordered pairs and in the graphs in the ﬁrst quadrant of the coordinate plane. This work prepares students for studying proportional relationships and functions in middle school. Analyze patterns and relationships. Mathematically proficient students communicate precisely by engaging in discussion about their reasoning using appropriate mathematical language. The terms students should learn to use with increasing precision with this cluster are: numerical patterns, rules, ordered pairs, coordinate plane. Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems. Mathematically proficient students communicate precisely by engaging in discussion about their reasoning using appropriate mathematical language. The terms students should learn to use with increasing precision with this cluster are: coordinate system, coordinate plane, first quadrant, points, lines, axis/axes, x-axis, y-axis, horizontal, vertical, intersection of lines, origin, ordered pairs, coordinates, x-coordinate, y-coordinate. The Critical Areas are designed to bring focus to the standards at each grade by describing the big ideas that educators can use to build their curriculum and to guide instruction. This cluster goes beyond the Grade 5 Critical Areas of Focus to address Modeling numerical relationships with the coordinate plane. Based on previous work with measurement and number lines, students develop understanding of the coordinate plane as a tool to model numerical relationships. These initial understandings provide the foundation for work with negative numbers, and ratios and proportional relationships in Grade Six and functional relationships in further grades.
