5th grade math lessons begin to go into the topic of fractions with a bit more depth. Here are what 5th grades learn on the topic of fractions:

- Understanding the concept of a fraction as a part of a whole or a part of a set.
- Identifying fractions using proper notation, including mixed numbers and improper fractions.
- Compare fractions using symbols such as >, <, and =.
- Adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators using the least common multiple.
- Multiplying fractions.
- Dividing fractions.
- Simplify fractions to lowest terms.
- Convert fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions.
- Fraction use in real-world situations, such as measuring and cooking.

Interpret multiplication as scaling (resizing) by:

- Comparing the size of a product to the size of one factor.
- Explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction greater than 1 results in a product greater than the given number.
