5th grades geometry emphasis is on triangles and quadrilaterals. Your fifth grader must be able to identify the different types, calculate the area
and perimiter with ease, and have the ability to identify the other polygons, that are not being studied in detail.
The use of the cartesian coordinate system is continued from 4th grade, with the introduction of coordinates as decimals and negative numbers.
A good understanding of numbers and operations is essential here. You don't want your child to struggle with geometry, because they don't understand
the concept of different types of numbers.
