Grade 5 Advanced


The Year at a Glance provides an overview of the mathematics content taught in the course.

IM 6–8 Math is a problem-based core curriculum rooted in content and practice standards to foster learning and achievement for all. Students learn by doing math, solving problems in mathematical and real-world contexts, and constructing arguments using precise language. Teachers can shift their instruction and facilitate student learning with high-leverage routines that guide them in understanding and making connections between concepts and procedures.

Instructional time should focus on

  • connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems;
  • completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers;
  • writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and
  • developing understanding of statistical thinking.
