5th Grade Unit 7 – Multiplication and Division


Unit Overview

Content Focus –

This unit focuses on multiplication and division and continues the development of computational fluency.  The main mathematical focus is becoming fluent with division strategies.

Looking Back…

The work in this unit assumes that students should be carrying out multiplication fluently and efficiently.  They have had opportunities to work with representing and solving problems involving division, but they may still be working toward fluency.

Looking Forward…

This is the final 5th grade unit in the number and operations strand of Investigations.  Students will have more opportunities to refine and practice their multiplication and division strategies during routines and other practice times.
