Are you smarter than a fifth grader? When it comes to math, dealing with numbers and variables can often get tricky. But what about if we bring it back to fifth grade? From mental math to word problems, could you ace this 5th-grade math quiz?

When you're in fifth grade, there's a host of classes you're focused on taking. There's English, Science, Reading, and Social Studies. Who could forget about the student "favorite," math? Your math education started with addition and subtraction before moving on to multiplication and division. The topics grew to include recognizing patterns to plotting points on a coordinate plane. When it comes fifth grade math, can you remember all the concepts?

From fractions to the volume of shapes, how much do you remember from fifth-grade math? Put down those calculators and get your brain ready!
