BJU Press Math Grade 5 (4th Ed.)
Following the same scope and sequence as the 3rd edition Math 5, the publisher has expanded teaching strategies, added teacher helps and integrated STEM lessons and group activities. Families who used the 3rd edition will appreciate the compatibility between the editions, and families new to Bob Jones Math will appreciate the comprehensive approach to math from a Biblical worldview. The teacher’s edition provides lesson overviews, teaching notes, lesson problem solutions and answer keys for the student activities pages. Manipulatives are still important for concept understanding. Numerous instructional aids previously found in the Teacher Toolkit CD are now included in the back of the teacher edition. Reduced student pages are slightly larger than the previous edition in response to customer input. The student worktext encourages mastery, while chapter opening articles and word problems emphasize a biblical worldview. STEM lessons with corresponding activities are also included. The daily review pages and cumulative reviews have been removed from the 4th edition student worktext. The activities book provides spiral review of concepts from previous chapters, with cumulative reviews. Daily reviews are available online (link is found in the teacher edition). Answers to the activities book are included in the teacher edition. The assessments include a test for each chapter. Answers are found in the assessments answer key. All student materials are consumable, and not reproducible. Components are available individually or in a homeschool kit, which includes the Teacher’s Edition, Worktext, Activities Book, Assessments and Assessment Answer Key.
