Welcome to EOG Parent Night! 5th Grade Math and Science March 1, 2012
What are 5th Grade Math Objectives?
COMPETENCY GOAL 1: 24% • The learner will read, write, model, and compute with non-negative rational numbers: (Numeration) • 1.01 Develop number sense : 0.001 through 999,999 • 1.02 Develop fluency in adding and subtracting • Relationships non-negative numbers involving • Halves • Fourths • Eighths • Thirds • Sixths • Twelfths • Fifths • Tenths • Hundredths • Mixed numbers • 1.03 Solve problems using models, diagrams, and reasoning
Problem Example: Goal 1 Jackie, Morgan, Kyle, and Chung ran the 100-meter dash. Jackie finished in 17.6 seconds, Morgan finished in 17.06 seconds, Kyle finished in 17.66 seconds, and Chung finished in 17.066 seconds. Which runner finished in the least amount of time? A Jackie B Morgan C Kyle D Chung
COMPETENCY GOAL 2: 12% • The learner will recognize and use standard units of metric and customary measurement. • 2.01 Estimate the measure of an object in one system given the measure of that object in another system. • 2.02 Identify, estimate, and measure the angles of plane figures using appropriate tools.
Problem Example: Goal 2 1. Mrs. Aldridge has asked her students to predict how many liters of water it will take to fill a 10-quart bucket. Which prediction is close to 10 quarts? A 80 liters B 40 liters C 20 liters D 10 liters
Competency Goal 3: 28% • The learner will understand and use properties and relationships of plane figures. (Geometry) • 3.01 Identify, define, describe, and accurately represent triangles, quadrilaterals, and other polygons. • 3.02 Make and test conjectures about polygons involving: • A. Sum of the measures of interior angles. • B. Lengths of sides • 3.03 Classify plane figures according to types of symmetry • Symmetry (line) • Rotational
Competency Goal 3: 28% • 3.04 Solve problems involving properties of triangles, quadrilaterals, and other polygons. • A. Sum of interior angles. • B. Lengths of side and diagonals. • Parallelism and perpendicularity of sides and diagonals.
Problem Example: Goal 3 5. A triangle has two 45° interior angles. Which term correctly describes the triangle? A regular B scalene C equilateral D isosceles
Competency Goal 4: 12% • The learner will understand and use graphs, probability, and data analysis. (Data) • 4.01 Collect, organize, analyze, and display data (including stem and leaf plots) to solve problems. • 4.02 Compare and contrast different representations of the same data; discuss the effectiveness of each representation. • 4.03 Solve problems with data from a single set or multiple sets of data using mode, median, and range.
Problem Example: Goal 4 1. The principal asked each classroom to report the number of bags of newspapers collected for the recycling project. Bags of Newspapers Collected 1 3 7 7 9 2 3 3 7 8 8 3 3 6 7 4 2 4 9 5 1 2 6 1 3 How many classrooms collected 40 or more bags of newspapers? A 7 B 6 C 5 D 3
Competency Goal 5: 24% • The learner will demonstrate an understanding of patterns, relationships, and elementary algebraic representations. (Algebra) • 5.01 Describe, extend, and generalize numeric and geometric patterns using tables, graphs, words, and symbols. • 5.02 Use algebraic expressions, patterns, and one-step equations and inequalities to solve problems. • 5.03 Identify, describe, and analyze situations with constant or varying rates of change.
Problem Example: Goal 5 Maria’s family drives 328 miles from Asheville to Wilmington every summer. Maria’s father drives at a constant speed of 50 miles per hour. About how much driving time does it take Maria’s family to get to Wilmington? A 6 hours B 6.5 hours C 7 hours D 7.5 hours
EOG Math Questions: • Total number= 82 • 54 Calculator Active • 28 Calculator Inactive • Test is not a test for speed, but for higher order thinking skills: NOT a timed test
What Parents Can Do: • Check homework nightly: • Go over the work by checking that the answers are correct and problems are worked out completely by following problem solving steps • Practice multiplication and division facts • Make sure that your child studies their notes nightly • Use resources like – Study Island, Study Jams and IXL Math to help your child at home.
What Else Can Parents Do? • Allow time for real opportunities to learn: • Grocery store: • Weighing produce • Counting money • Comparing best buys • Multiplying costs of more than one item • Many more ways….. • Recipes: • Measuring
More……. • Log on to Department of Public Instruction (DPI) for sample problems & work these with your child before the test: http://www.ncpublicschools.org/accountability/parents/ • Allow your child computer time at home to go to websites to practice math: • www.studyisland.com • www.aaamath.com
And More……. • Discuss the importance of EOG tests, especially in fifth grade. • There is no summer school. • The scale scores are different from 4th grade, and they continue to increase each year. • One chance to do OUR BEST and be the Number One 5th Grade Math Class in the county and the state!!!
Together We Can… Reach our goals!!!!
Administered at grades 5 and 8 • Measures student understanding and knowledge of principles, concepts, interpret laboratory activities and relate scientific information to everyday situations • Administration allows calculators on the test and students at grade 8 will also use periodic tables during administration of the test
Calculator Active • Grades 5 and 8 • 80 Questions
Content Areas • Weather and Climate • Force and Motion • Ecosystems and Biomes • Landforms
