Did you ace fifth-grade math? Take this quiz to find out how much of your elementary math skills you remember.
Were you one of those students who did every problem of the math homework even though the teacher told you to do only the odd or even ones? If you did, you were either a math whiz or a nerd... probably both, but that's ok. Or were you one of those students who cried "when will I ever use this stuff" every time you opened up your math textbook?
If you were the latter, you might be having a hard time helping your own child with his or her math homework, especially with all of the new changes in the way math is taught.
But, if you were the former, you either became a math teacher, or you realize that your fellow students who wanted to know when they would ever use that stuff might be kicking themselves because they use math every day without even realizing it.
So, if you know a little more than two plus two equals four and that a prime number is a number that can be divided only by the number one and itself, take this quiz to test your fifth-grade math knowledge.
Gotta start out with a little math vocab. Volume is a measure of space inside a solid figure.
12 + 4 is inside the parentheses. The answer to the equation is 21.
A composite number is the opposite of a prime number. The number 16 is a composite number.
The number on the outside of the division bracket is called the divisor. In the equation 20/4=5, the number 4 is the divisor.
An exponent is a shorthand way of indicating how many times to multiply a number. An exponent is displayed as a superscript number.
Factors are numbers that are multiplied together to create a new number. In the equation 4 x 5 = 20, the numbers 4 and 5 are factors.
One and two tenths can be displayed as 1.2. The .2 means two tenths.
The smallest multiple of each denominator is the least common denominator. It is abbreviated LCD.
A fraction is called improper when its numerator is bigger than its denominator. The fraction 15/4 is improper.
A number that includes both a whole number and a fraction is a mixed number. The number 3 3/4 is a mixed number.
An angle's vertex is the point where two rays, lines, or line segments meet. This is basic fifth-grade geometry.
A prime number is a number that cannot be divided by any numbers other than one and itself. The numbers 3, 5, 17 and 29 are all prime numbers.
Lines that run alongside one another without ever crossing are parallel. The = is made up of two parallel lines.
1.5 + 2.46 = 3.96. Just line up the decimals to solve.
Lines that cross each other, forming a right angle, are perpendicular. Perpendicular lines form 90-degree angles.
A common denominator is a multiple of the denominators of two or more fractions. Common denominators are necessary for addition and subtraction.
1.92 is greater than 1.29. The "greater than" symbol is >.
Fractions that have an equal value are called equivalent fractions. The fractions 5/10 and 1/2 are equivalent.
A multiple is a number that can be divided by another number evenly. The number 25 is a multiple of 5.
This is true. A fifth grader should have a grasp of reading and writing both dates and times.
4.7 > 4.07. We can say this as 4.7 is greater than 4.07.
You can buy nine candy bars. But you probably shouldn't eat them all at once.
This is true. A fifth grader should have a grasp of how to use money correctly.
The point where line segment AB meets line segment BD is called the vertex. A vertex is the point where two rays, lines or line segments meet.
All of these choices are multiples of six. A multiple is a number that can be divided by another number evenly.
This is false. A multiple is a number that can be divided into another number evenly, with no remainder. 24 is a multiple of 12.
This is true. A common denominator is a multiple of the denominators of two or more fractions.
This is false. The lowest common denominator for the fractions 3/10 and 4/5 is 10.
1/2 is equivalent to 4/8. Equivalent fractions are fractions that have an equal value.
16/9 is an improper fraction. An improper fraction is a fraction in which the numerator is bigger than the denominator.
In the problem 15 ÷ 5, the number 5 would be called the divisor. A divisor is the number on the outside of the division bracket.
The symbol used in long division is called the division bracket. It is also often simply called a bracket.
448 ÷ 44.8 + 10. This equation combines knowledge of division and decimals.
A protractor is a tool that measures angles. Fifth graders use this tool for geometry.
A right angle measures 90 degrees. A right angle is formed when two perpendicular lines meet.
