# Elementary School Curriculum. Fourth and Fifth Years: Grade V. Arithmetic

In its power to sustain interest the arithmetic of the fifth grade may properly be placed with geography, history, or nature-study. The children come from the fourth grade with a good working knowledge of whole numbers. By a working knowledge is meant that they can read and write numbers up to billions, that they know the multiplication tables, and can add, subtract, multiply, and divide. In the fifth grade they use fractions and decimals. The outline of the work is as follows: Special work: Common and decimal fractions. 1. Counting. By 7's, 9's, 12’s, etc., as a rapid review of addition and multiplication. 2. Integers. Oral: Rapid drill in review of the four operations. Written: Abstract and concrete problems involving the four operations. Emphasis upon proof of work, upon accuracy and rapidity.
