(NEXSTAR) — Are you smarter than an Oklahoma fifth-grader taking their annual math assessment test? As another new school year is underway, it’s never a bad idea to know what the kids are learning — or how hard the lessons are.
The following questions were taken from the Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP). The State Department of Education posts practice tests for each grade online.
While students are typically assessed in the spring, it’s time for you to test your skills now with these fifth grade-level math questions. And while the term “easy” is subjective, these are five math problems that don’t require graphing and don’t require a calculator. When testing yourself, try not to use a calculator – they’re only allowed for fifth graders as an approved accommodation.
