    Pioneer Central Schools have adopted the New York State Common Core for Math. If you have had a child in 5th grade previous to this year, our curriculum has changed! Our new focus in math will be:
    70% of our time will be spent on:
    * number sense
    * place value
    * decimals and decimal place value
    * fractions
    * division, addition, subtraction, and multiplication of fractions
    * whole number place value
    * decimal place value
    * arithmetic: addition and subtraction to 1/100ths, multiplication and division by a one digit whole number

    20% of our time will be spent on:
    * multi digit whole number operations
    * geometry
    * measurement and data
    * extensions and applications of multiplication and division of fractions
    * addition and multiplication with volume and area
     
    10% of our time will be spent on:
    * addition and multiplication with volume and area
    * graph points on the coordinate plane to solve problems

     
    My goal is to best prepare your child for our 4 benchmarks we will take through out the school year at 10 week intervals, our many unit tests, and ultimately, the NYS Math test in late April.
