This math course is offered to 5th graders. Students will cover 5th and 6th grade TEKS in one school year using McGraw Hill's Course 1 curriculum. This course is quickly paced and of rigorous content.The primary focus is on Algebra.

It is expected that students entering this course have a deep understanding of fractions (which is heavily covered in 5th grade level math) and absolutemastery of multi-digit multiplication and long division as we begin the year with rational numbers and dividing decimals.

Students must maintain at least an 80% on assessments without extra homework and tutoring per district requirement. Students unable to maintain grade expectations/keep up with the material will be moved to grade level math. Students are notified of a test at least a week in advance and are provided a study guide.

This year students in this course will take the 5th Grade Math STAAR Test in the spring.
