5th Grade Math Tutoring Course

Our tutoring and learning center offers three types of math programs designed for students attending 5th grade.

  1. Individual tutoring: one-on-one tutoring in-home or on-campus tutoring sessions.
  2. Small group tutoring. Our regular small group tutoring programs (2 - 5 students) are one hour long and held throughout the academic year from September to June. They provide an excellent combination of individualized instruction with one of our math tutors and the benefits of collaborative study with others. Students may bring the homework assigned by their respective teachers to their learning center classes and our tutors will help them with their specific assignments. In addition, our math tutors can cover the missed skills and provide additional instruction on challenging material in our own classes. Students enroll in our small group math tutoring programs by completing an application and returning it to the Columbia Academy tutoring and learning center. Enrollment is open throughout the year. A monthly commitment is required.
  3. Classroom math program. The entire classroom math program is divided into three consecutive sessions and covers the following topics:
  • Fractions, decimals, and percents
  • Computational fluency with fractions and decimals
  • Algebraic thinking
  • Developing understanding of volume
  • Data analysis and probability
  • Problem solving

Upon completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Write and interpret numerical expressions
  • Analyze patterns and relationships
  • Understand the place value system
  • Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths
  • Add and subtract fractions
  • Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions
  • Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system
  • Represent and interpret data
  • Geometric measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition
  • Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems
  • Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties

Each session is 12 weeks long. The class meets once a week for one hour. Separate registration for each session ensures that the session you have chosen best meets your child's needs and it will not interfere with his/her other after-school activities during the year. Please refer to the Schedule page for specific dates when the sessions begin and end.
