How can a 5th Grade Math tutor help your child?
Fifth grade is, for many students, the culminating year of elementary school. They are about to take the next big step in their education by moving to a new school, having a new schedule, and working with new teachers. With this imminent transition in mind, fifth grade teachers often stress the importance of refreshing previously learned skills and applying them to new situations. Fifth grade math covers multiplication, division, and fractions, requiring students to begin applying these concepts in tandem. Students will begin to solve equations that require them to add or subtract fractions, as well as multiply or divide them. Using fractions within equations enforces the importance of fundamentals in factoring and number relationships.
While students may have been introduced to fractional multiplication and division in fourth grade, adding and subtracting fractions can be a much more difficult skill set. Finding the lowest common denominator and interconverting fractional quantities can pose a challenge even to the brightest students. With the topics in fifth grade math often bringing together numerous concepts from previous coursework, many students find themselves confused or bewildered by the resurgence of material that they may have forgotten or learned differently with another teacher.
