We have come to the end of chapter 5 which is dividing decimals. Students took the test for this and we will be moving on to our next big concept in fifth grade – fractions. The chapter 6 books on adding and subtracting fractions have been distributed. We will follow this chapter with a chapter on multiplication of fractions and end with a chapter on division of fractions. Students usually find multiplication and division easier, since it requires fewer steps to solve.
