The learning standards in the Mathematics Curriculum Framework are numbered and organized using a unique

    identifier, such as 4.P.2, that indicates:

    First, the grade level: Second, the abbreviation of the strand: Third, the number of each

     learning standard within

    K = grades PreK K N = Number Sense and Operations each strand.

    2 = grades 1 2 P = Patterns, Relations, and Algebra

    4 = grades 3 4 G = Geometry

    6 = grades 5 6 M = Measurement

    8 = grades 7 8 D = Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability

    10 = grades 9 10

    For example, learning standard 4.P.2 is the second learning standard in the Patterns, Relations, and Algebra strand at grades 3-4.

    PreK K CONTENT Mathematics STRAND Number Sense and Operations

    Grade Level: PreK K

    Number K.N.1 Count by ones to at least 20. ? Begin to count, group, sort, and Sense match quantities of numbers ? Use the ―language‖ of numbers (both K.N.2 Match quantities up to at least 10 with numerals and verbal and written) words.

    ? Identify coins ? Learn concepts of whole and half K.N.3 Identify positions of objects in sequences (e.g., first, second) up to fifth.

    K.N.4 Compare sets of up to at least 10 concrete objects using

    appropriate language (e.g., none, more than, fewer than,

    same number of, one more than) and order numbers.

    K.N.5 Understand the concepts of whole and half.

    K.N.6 Identify U.S. coins by name.

    Operations K.N.7 Use objects and drawings to model and solve related ? Represent operations of addition and

    addition and subtraction problems to ten. subtraction concretely

    Estimation K.N.8 Estimate the number of objects in a group and verify ? Use objects and manipulatives to

    results. estimate numbers in group

     ? Compare exact answer with estimates
