Mrs. Glossar's Math Goodies
This may not be on your unit test, but I bet it's on the MSA. It's one of those skills you skipped if you didn't take 5th grade math.
This video will explain divisibility rules.
Use this site to practice finding missing addends.
This PPT does a great job of illustrating the rules of divisibility, explaining what they are and why they're importantgiving, and giving practice questions.
Scroll down for links to practice the rules of divisibility in isolation.
Learn to write equations and expressions from sentences.
This site explains the commutative, associative, and distributive properties with graphic examples.
This is a great place to practice solving equations because it gives step by step help if you get stuck. It does have equations with negative numbers, but these can be skipped if you're not ready.
Print this worksheet to get extra practice.
This site has a fun game that's pretty tough to crack! Good for enrichment when kids have mastered the SLE and need more rigor.
Type in an equation, and the computer will solve it for you! It's a great way to check your homework.
This PPT can be used as a teaching tool with examples for the kids to work for each rule. I would recommend having them use individual dry erase boards so that teachers can do a quick visual assessment of understanding.
Set the type of equation and race the clock to solve.
Students will be shown a five square net and must click another square to make a net that forms a cube. A recording sheet may be printed. This would be great practice after students have completed a hands on folding activity. This SLE isn't addressed in Saxon.
This SLE is not taught in Saxon and must be covered with other resources. This site is a great resource for introducing nets that form a cube. Other nets need to be explored besides the one shown.
On this site you can practice the different addition and multiplication properties as well as find good explanations and examples.
Use this online balance to model solving equations. This SLE is not covered in Saxon
This site is great practice for rules of divisibility.
Select nets that form a cube.
Practice equations. You should have the Shockwave download for this site to operate properly.
This site lets you type in an equation and then shows you step by step how to solve for any variable. It's a great way to get unstuck on homework problems. How cool is that?
This site allows students to type in a number between 1 and 1,000, then watch as it factors the number to determine divisibility. There's a print off to go with the activity.
This is a paid site, but the first twenty problems are free.
This site has several activities that allow you to solve equations and evaluate expressions. You can select the difficulty level and number of steps, which makes it great when you're first learning.
This is an SLE not addressed in Saxon. Work mentally or by cutting and folding the net to figure out what color faces would be opposite if the net formed a cube.
Lexington Public Schools
Review and practice the associative property with this PPT.
Solve one step equations. There is also a printable worksheet for follow up. The skill will have to be modeled for students to successfully complete the activity. This is an SLE not addressed by Saxon.
This site allows you to work basic equations and shows you step by step how to solve the problems if you get stuck.
See 4th grade Q 1 for websites to teach this SLE. This part of the SLE is not addressed in Saxon.
