 ## Mathematics

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.

## LEARNING OBJECTIVES

#### Concept

• 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.

#### Confidence

• 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.

#### Clarity

• 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.

#### Application

• 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.

#### Innovation

• 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.

#### Compassion

• 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.
