UnboundEd## Grade 5 Standards Guide: Number & Operations in Base Ten

Description: Explanations and examples of how to implement the Number & Operations in Base Ten standards in Grade 5. Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multistep, real world problems. This standard builds on work with conversions in Grade 4, where students convert from larger to smaller units. In Grade 5, students build on this understanding to convert measurements from a smaller unit to a larger unit. The given example involves converting from a smaller unit to a larger unit.
