Number and Operations
Understand numbers, ways of representing numbers, relationships among numbers, and number systems.
Understand meanings of operations and how they relate to one another.
Compute fluently and make reasonable estimates.
Kindergarten Curriculum Focal Points
Number and Operation: Representing, comparing, and ordering whole numbers and joining and separating sets
Geometry: Describing shapes and space
Measurement: Ordering objects by measurable attributes
Connections to the Kindergarten Focal Points
Geometry: Children integrate their understandings of geometry, measurement, and number. For example, they understand, discuss, and create simple navigational directions (e.g., 'Walk forward 10 steps, turn right, and walk forward 5 steps').
Understand patterns, relations, and functions.
Represent and analyze mathematical situations and structures using algebraic symbols.
Use mathematical models to represent and understand quantitative relationships.
Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships.
Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems.
Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations.
Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems.
Understand measurable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and processes of measurement.
Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements.
