Common Core State Standards require children leaving 5th grade to be able to understand and solve multi-step word problems using all operations, analyze patterns and relationships, and employ a variety of problem solving strategies. Summer Solutions Grade 5 Problem Solving is an excellent mathematics resource for students entering 6th grade. Each summer workbook provides a way to bridge the summer learning gap while developing fluency with a range of problem-solving strategies. Some of these include Making a Table, Solving a Simpler Problem, Writing a Number Sentence, Drawing a Picture or Diagram, and Logical Reasoning. The workbook provides instruction and practice with fifth grade math skills, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, patterns, geometry, data, and measurement. By completing 30 lessons of mixed review over the summer (one lesson, three days a week), students enter 6th grade, ready to tackle word problems with highly effective strategies. These summer workbooks include Help Pages and a complete answer key.
