Kindergarten

In kindergarten math, your child will:

count objects and tell how many there are

write numerals 0-20

compare numbers or sets of objects to tell which has more or less

add & subtract quickly and easily to 5

add & subtract within 10 using objects, fingers, drawings, numbers, or equations

solve addition and subtraction story problems

understand that teen numbers are 10 and some more

identify and describe shapes

understand length and weight as something that can be measured

1st Grade

In grade 1 math, your child will:

solve addition and subtraction story problems

count by ones and tens to 120 read and write numbers to 120, and represent a number of objects up to 120 with a written numeral

understand place value by describing what the digits mean in two-digit numbers; use this knowledge to add and subtract

add two-digit numbers using at least two different strategies and explain how the strategies work

subtract two-digit numbers that are multiples of 10 using at least two different strategies and explain how the strategies work

compare two numbers using the symbols >, =, and <

add and subtract numbers within 10 efficiently and accurately

read or construct a graph and answer questions about the data

measure length using non-standard units such as Popsicle sticks, linking cubes, and so on

tell and write time to the hour and half-hour on analog and digital clock

2nd Grade

In grade 2 math, your child will:

solve two-step addition and subtraction story problems to 100

add and subtract to 20; know addition facts to 20 by memory

read and write 3-digit numbers using numerals, words, and expanded notation (726 = 700 + 20 + 6)

understand that the three digits of a 3-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones

use symbols >, =, < to compare two 3-digit numbers

add and subtract 2-digit numbers accurately and efficiently, and explain strategies for doing so

add and subtract 3-digit numbers using models, sketches, and/or numbers, and explain strategies for doing so

estimate and measure length in centimeters and meters, inches and feet.

divide circles and rectangles into two, three, and four equal parts and describe the parts

recognize, draw, and analyze 2- and 3-D shapes

solve money problems involving dollars, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies

3rd Grade

In grade 3 math, your child will:

use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to solve story problems

solve multiplication and division facts accurately and efficiently

multiply 1-digit numbers by multiples of 10, e.g., 3 x 70

add and subtract 2- and 3-digit numbers

compare, recognize, and generate equivalent fractions and place them on a number line

tell time to the minute

estimate and measure liquid volume and mass in metric units

solve area and perimeter problems

identify and construct different kinds of quadrilaterals

sort and classify shapes

4th Grade

In grade 4 math, your child will:

understand factors and multiples, e.g., 1,2,4,5,10, and 20 are all factors of 20, and 20 is a multiple of each of those numbers

understand that a prime number has only 2 factors—1 and itself, while a composite number has more than 2 factors

multiply multi-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations

divide 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and the relationship between multiplication and division

read, write, and compare multi-digit numbers and round multi-digit numbers to any place

add and subtract multi-digit numbers accurately and efficiently

recognize and generate equivalent fractions

compare two fractions with different numerators and denominators

measure and sketch angles with a protractor

classify 2-D shapes

identify and draw lines of symmetry

5th Grade

In grade 5 math, your child will:

use models and strategies to divide 2- and 3-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers, with and without remainders. (Students are not expected to use the standard long division algorithm until sixth grade.)

add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators

multiply fractions and divide fractions in simple cases
