Hello! I am excited to be your 5th grade math teacher! I have a feeling that this is going to be a fun year that is full of learning. You will find some important information about my class below.

The following are TOPICS that we cover in 5th grade.
  • Multiplying Multi-digit whole numbers
  • Dividing with two-digit divisors
  • Understanding the place value system (Base-10 relationships, multiplying/dividing by powers of 10, etc.)
  • Comparing, ordering, and rounding decimals.
  • Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals
  • Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions
  • Converting units within the Customary and Metric systems of measurement
  • Classifying polygons based on various attributes
  • More

My goal is to make sure that students leave my class knowing concepts that are not only essential to the rest of their education, but also essential in life. With that said, there are certain EXPECTATIONS that I have for the students in order for them to get what the need and deserve from me.
  1. Students are expected to come to school with a positive attitude for learning.
  2. Students are expected to come to to school with the necessary tools to complete their daily responsibilities.
  3. Students are expected to come to school willing to respect themselves and others including all school personnel and students.
  4. Students are expected to be prepared to complete all assignments and turn them in on time.

This is not an I task. This is not YOU task. This is an WE task. It it important that WE (teachers, students, and parents) work together to make sure that the STUDENTS are successful. I like to keep the line of communication open between all stakeholders involved. If you ever feel there is a need to contact me, please do so. My email address is deloach.gary.n@muscogee.k12.ga.us.
