Math Mammoth Grade 5 International Version Complete Curriculum


Math Mammoth Grade 5 International Version is a complete math program (curriculum) for 5th grade mathematics studies. It consists of two student worktexts (A and B), a separate answer key for each, tests, cumulative reviews, and an additional worksheet maker (Internet access required) to make extra practice worksheets when needed.

This curriculum is essentially the same as the version of Math Mammoth Grade 5 sold in the United States (US version), only customised for international use. The US version is aligned to the “Common Core” Standards, so it may not be properly aligned to the fifth grade standards in your country. However, you can probably find material for any missing topics in neighbouring grades. For example, let’s say that your country mandates the study of percentages in grade (year) 5. That material is not found in Math Mammoth Grade 5, but it does appear in Math Mammoth Grade 6. So, you can simply re-order the material to solve most incompatibilities between different standards.

The International version of Math Mammoth differs from the US version in these aspects:
The curriculum teaches metric measurement units, not customary (imperial) units.
The currency used in word problems is the Australian dollar.
The spelling conforms to British international standards.
The format is adapted for printing on the setting of A4.
 Large numbers are formatted with a space as the thousands
separator (such as 12 394).

(The decimals are formatted with a decimal point, as in the US version.)
The fifth grade is time for fractions and decimals, in particular. In part 5-A, we study decimals in depth and with substantial detail. Students also deepen their understanding of whole numbers, learn much more problem solving, and get introduced to the calculator.

The year starts out with a study of whole numbers, their operations, and problem solving. Students get to revise multi-digit multiplication and long division. Then we study equations with the help of a balance and bar models (simple diagrams). The main idea is to get students used to the idea of an equation and what it means to solve an equation.
In the second chapter, the focus is on large numbers and using a calculator. This is the first time a calculator is introduced in Math Mammoth complete curriculum—so far, all calculations have been done mentally, or with paper and pencil. I want students to learn to be critical in their use of the calculator—use it with good judgment. Every exercise where calculator use is to be allowed is marked with a little calculator symbol.
The fourth chapter is about decimals and their operations. It is a long chapter because now is the time to learn decimal operations well. It is assumed that the student already has a solid foundation for decimal place value, as taught in Math Mammoth 4th grade curriculum. That is the true means of preventing common misconceptions, or students resorting to rote memorisation of the decimal operations.

We study graphing in a coordinate grid, line and bar graphs, and average and mode. Today’s world has become increasingly complex, with lots of data in the media, so our children need a good grasp of graphs to be able to make sense of all that information.

Chapter 6 is about the addition and subtraction of fractions—another focus topic for 5th grade, besides decimals. Students learn to add and subtract unlike fractions, using the technique of first converting them to equivalent like fractions. In chapter 7, we study the multiplication and division of fractions (division only in special cases), relying first on visual models, and then proceeding to the abstract shortcuts.

Chapter 8 takes us to geometry, starting with a revision of angles and polygons. From there, students will learn to draw circles, to classify triangles and quadrilaterals, and the concept of volume in the context of right rectangular prisms (boxes).

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
