Math Check: 5th Grade Number Sense

This 5th Grade Number Sense Math Check is designed to be a pre and post assessment for number sense standards in your math classroom.

This 5th Grade Number Sense Math Check is designed to be a pre and post assessment for number sense standards in your math classroom.

This set of math checks is designed to help you assess fifth grade standards for number sense.

Because states across the nation have adopted a variety of standards, we have created this assessment without indicator numbers. Our hope is that this will make these assessments materials that can be used regardless of the numbers used on your standards.

In many states, fifth grade number sense begins with an assumption that students have mastered place value skills. Because we know that many students need to begin the year by reviewing these skills, this math check begins with some skills that are carried over from fourth grade.

These assessment pages can be used as pre and post assessment checks to chart growth. You might also use them to check in with your students before a unit test.

Use these problems to help guide your teaching at the beginning of a unit or to help you structure your reteaching groups as you progress.

You will also find an answer key.

You will find problems covering each standard along with the standard listed at the top of the page or section.

Problems for the following standards are included:

  • Understand the place value system.
  • Compare two numbers using >, =, and < symbols.
  • Use place value understanding to round numbers to any given place value.
  • Identify odd and even numbers.
  • Complete number patterns.

The math check created has been designed to touch upon each of the standards.

We will be creating a separate, computation assessment. We do understand that some school districts group beginning number sense with computation. You will be able to pull indicators from each set to fit your school.

We do understand for an end of unit test, you will might need a larger, more in depth test. This resource is not that test. Instead, it is a way for you to take a quick feel of your students understanding of the content.
