Academic standards list

Mathematics - Grade 1 — Mathematics

Introduction

Academic standards define the expectations for knowledge and skills that students are to learn in a subject by a certain age or at the end of a school grade level. This page contains a list of standards for a specific content area, grade level, and/or course. The list of standards may be structured using categories and sub-categories.

Mathematical Processes

 
Standard 1 — Mathematical Processes
 
Conceptual StrandThe Mathematical Process Standards are embedded in the content standards to reap the learning benefits gained from attention to them. These standards exemplify best teaching practices in mathematical instruction and mirror the NCTM Process Standards as well as the Common Core Mathematical Practices.Guiding QuestionWhat is the role of the mathematical processes standards in formative instruction?
 
Grade Level Expectation
Use mathematical language, symbols, and definitions while developing mathematical reasoning.
Apply and adapt a variety of appropriate strategies to problem solving, including estimation, and reasonableness of the solution.
Develop independent reasoning to communicate mathematical ideas and derive algorithms and/or formulas.
Move flexibly between concrete and abstract representations of mathematical ideas in order to solve problems, model mathematical ideas, and communicate solution
Use mathematical ideas and processes in different settings to formulate patterns, analyze graphs, set up and solve problems and interpret solutions.
Read and interpret the language of mathematics and use written/oral communication to express mathematical ideas precisely.
 
Recognize the historical development of mathematics, mathematics in context, and the connections between mathematics and the real world.
Use technologies/manipulatives appropriately to develop understanding of mathematical algorithms, to facilitate problem solving, and to create accurate and

Number and Operations

 
Standard 2 — Number and Operations
 
Conceptual StrandThe Number and Operations Standard describes deep and fundamental understanding of, and proficiency with, counting, numbers, and arithmetic, as well as an understanding of number systems and their structures.Guiding QuestionHow do students develop number sense that allows them to naturally decompose numbers, use particular numbers as referents, solve problems using the relationships among operations and knowledge about the base-ten system, estimate a reasonable result for a problem, and have a disposition to make sense of numbers, problems, and results?
 
Grade Level Expectation
Understand and use number notation and place value to 100.
Compare and order whole numbers to 100.
Develop strategies for learning basic addition facts and related subtraction facts.
Use multiple representations (including groups of ten) to model two-digit addition and subtraction.

Algebra

 
Standard 3 — Algebra
 
Conceptual StrandThe Algebra Standard emphasizes relationships among quantities, including functions, patterns, ways of representing mathematical relationships, and the analysis of change.Guiding QuestionHow does algebra encompass the relationships among quantities, the use of symbols, the modeling of phenomena, and the mathematical study of change?
 
Grade Level Expectation
Identify, describe, and extend simple number patterns to develop strategies for adding and subtracting whole numbers.
Understand that addition and subtraction are inverse operations.
Extend the strategies for basic facts to include other properties of number and operations.
 

Geometry and Measurement

 
Standard 4 — Geometry and Measurement
 
Conceptual StrandGeometry studies geometric shapes and structures and their characteristics and relationships. Understanding what a measurable attribute is and becoming familiar with the units and processes that are used in measuring attributes are the major emphasis of this standard.Guiding QuestionHow can students make and explore conjectures about geometry and reason carefully about geometric ideas while expanding their understanding of precision in measurement?
 
Grade Level Expectation
Recognize, describe, and draw geometric figures.
Compose and decompose geometric shapes.
Use non-standard units in linear measurement.

Data, Probability and Statistics

 
Standard 5 — Data, Probability and Statistics
 
Conceptual StrandThe Data Analysis and Probability Standard recommends that students formulate questions that can be answered using data and addresses what is involved in gathering and using the data wisely. The basic concepts and applications of probability are also addressed, with an emphasis on the way that probability and statistics are related.Guiding QuestionHow do students experiences with the collection and analysis of data enable them to reason statistically and understand the various purposes of surveys, observational studies, and experiments?
 
Grade Level Expectation
Use various representations to display and compare data.
