These were incredible videos and incredible teachers! I can't wait to watch these again and take notes. I have one question about the 5th grade concept of "surface area".As far as I can see, this is not a 5th grade common core skill. In 5th grade we are working on volume. If it is a skill that 5th graders need to be working on....I need to know! I will investigate further.

Hi Shelly, Good catch! Surface area first appears in the 6th grade CCSS. The 5th graders in this video are working on the practice standard having to do with perseverance while tackling a challenging topic (so challenging that it's actually in the 6th grade standards!). Thanks for asking about this... and no need to feel pressure to teach your 5th graders about surface area :-)
