Math

Goals 

  • Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems by using objects, drawings, and equations and add and subtract within 20 using a variety of strategies such as counting on or back, making a ten, and doubles plus or minus 1 or 2.

  • Understand place value: the two-digit numbers of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones.

  • Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories and ask and answer questions about the data.

  • Identify basic shapes by their attributes and partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares describe the resulting shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters.

We use Everyday Mathematics (Edition 4), which is a comprehensive Pre-K through grade 6 mathematics program developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project and published by McGraw-Hill Education.
