# 5th Grade Math Review: Day 1

Welcome to the first day of a twelve-day review of 5th grade math. Let's jump right in!

Rounding Decimals

One of the first things that 5th graders need to learn is how to round decimals. They learned how to round to the nearest 10 or 100 in 3rd grade and extended that all the way to the hundred thousands place in 4th grade. Now, students need to take the same skill and apply is to decimal places to the hundredths. Watch the video below for a short recap.

Once you've learned how to round decimals, why not take a crack at this problem from a released STAAR test?

Comparing and Ordering Decimals

Another large part of 5th grade math is comparing and ordering decimals. Students have been comparing numbers since kindergarten but only in 4th grade did they begin comparing and ordering decimals. Now, in 5th grade, students need to know how to compare two decimals up to the thousandths place. Watch this short video for a refresher.

This is an important standard, called a readiness standard by the state of Texas, because it directly builds to what students need to know for 6th grade. Go ahead and try these two problems from the same released STAAR test.
