KINDERGARTEN MATH OVERVIEW

Counting and Cardinality, CC
  • Know number names and the count sequence
  • Count to tell the number of objects
  • Compare numbers
Operation and Algebraic Thinking, OA
  • Understanding addition as putting together and adding to, and understanding subtraction as taking apart and taking from

Number and Operations in Base Ten, NBT

  • Work with numbers 11-19 to gain foundations for place value

Measurement and Data, MD

  • Describe and compare measurable attributes
  • Classify objects and count the number of objects in categories

Geometry, G

  • Indentify and describe shapes
  • Analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes
Mathematical Practices
  1. Make sense of problems and persevere in problem solving

  2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively

  3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others

  4. Model with mathematics

  5. Use appropriate tools strategically

  6. Attend to precision

  7. Look for and make use of structure

  8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
