Grade 5


The objective of teaching Mathematics is to develop the skills of problem-solving and logical reasoning within learners. The curriculum is structured in a manner that each student is thoroughly clear of all the core concepts by the end of the grade. The aim of Grade 5 is to provide learners with the understanding of all fundamental principles in mathematics and their subsequent relations with the real world.



  • The learner represents numbers up to six-digits with ease.
  • The learner develops an understanding of fractions and decimals of numbers.
  • The learner effectively analyzes basic  shapes and patterns.


  • The learner builds relationships with comparable objects.
  • The learner gives basic directions to objects and begins to understand the reading of a compass.
  • The learner recognizes quadrangles, pentagons, hexagons etc.


  • The learner identifies and replicates 2-D figures with respect to their attributes such as angle, size and location.
  • The learner understands variables as changing quantities.
  • The learner  is able to find perimeters of squares and rectangles.


  • The learner organizes discrete data consisting of simple digits and sequence.
  • The learner develops the skill of selecting the appropriate type of standardized unit to measure various 2-D figures.
  • The learner predicts growth and drop for basic numeric and geometric patterns.


  • The learner performs on a higher level of DMAS (Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction) problems.
  • The learner develops the skill of answering to mathematical questions within capacities.
  •  The learner can extend and create repeating patterns.


  • The learner motivates peers to solve arithmetic problems within capacities.
  • The learner begins to work with others to promote qualities such as team-work.
  • The learner develops the habit of respecting others.
