Reviewer Comments:

This is an outstanding resource for teachers to use to support their mathematics curriculum. The information provided here supports the NCTM Standards, specifically the 5th grade math focal points. There are resources for teachers to use to develop their own background knowledge. In addition, there are resources to use for teaching each of the 5th grade focal points: division, fractions, and geometry. One link, "Math: Number: Short and Long Division" says that it is "not available." Otherwise, all of the links work and they are great resources for students to use to further develop their understanding of the mathematics concepts.
