MAFS.5.NBT.1.4

Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.

General Information

Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 5
Domain-Subdomain: Number and Operations in Base Ten
Cluster: Level 1: Recall
Cluster: Understand the place value system. (Major Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

Lesson Plans

Rounding Decimal Numbers - Lesson #3:

This is the final lesson in the Rounding Decimal Numbers Unit and will bring together the mathematical concepts in lesson 1 and 2. This lesson then bridges the computer science coding and mathematical thought process together as students dissect code that rounds decimal numbers as well as building their own code to make rounding an automated process.

Type: Lesson Plan

Rounding Decimal Numbers - Lesson #2:

This is lesson 2 of 3 in the Rounding Decimal Numbers unit. This lesson introduces Traditional Rounding method to determine an estimated value rounded to a specific place value. This lesson bridges the concepts of fractions to decimals and powers of ten as well expanded notation to rounding methods.

This lesson uses flowchart model to describe the method in which the rounding is performed. Rounded numbers are verified using a Scratch activity in this lesson.

Beach on a Budget:

Topic Overview:This 5th grade MEA asks students to work in teams to determine from which store they will buy beach equipment for a new beach rental business, after considering several criteria. After the students have created a proposal based on given data, a twist is added which may vary their results.

Type: Lesson Plan

Which Cell Phone for Mia?:

This engaging MEA requires students to help a 5th grade student decide which cell phone she will ask her parents for as her birthday present. Students must use a chart to analyze information and make conclusions based upon their own ranking system within their cooperative group. They then must write a letter to the student justifying their conclusions.

Type: Lesson Plan

Which Sweets for the Bakery?:

This MEA gives students the opportunity to use real world data to rank proposed product lines from most likely to be profitable to least likely to be profitable. There are two sequential tasks; the second task adds a component of complexity to the original task. Students will apply multiplication and division skills in problem solving, write a procedure with grade-appropriate organization and conventions, and participate in group collaboration to complete this task.

Type: Lesson Plan

Getting Dry:

This MEA asks the students to compare hand drying products based on: initial cost, replacement cost and absorbency. Students will provide the "top choice" to the principal of the school and explain how they arrived at the solution. In the twist, students will be asked to consider the environmental impact of the products and reevaluate their conclusions.
