Common Core Math: Grade 5: Geometry
In fifth grade, students define a coordinate grid as a pair of perpendicular number lines intersecting at their zeros (the origin). Students learn how to plot ordered pairs on the coordinate grid, developing a new tool for representing and interpreting two-dimensional data. Students also categorize shapes and define hierarchies between categories, concluding, for example, that all squares are rectangles and that all rectangles are quadrilaterals.
