• Math Benchmarks
3rd Trimester

Number Sense
-understand relationship between numbers and quantities
-compare two or more groups of objects and can id which group has the same, more, or less than other groups
-read, write, and count numbers and objects up to 30 and put them in order
-know that larger numbers describe groups with more objects and smaller numbers describe groups with fewer objects in them
-use real objects to figure out the answers to addition and subtraction
-estimate strategies in computation and problem solving that involve numbers that use the ones and tens place
-recognize when to estimate

Algebra and Functions
-sort and classify objects
-put objects in groups by deciding the ways they are alike or different

Measurement and Geometry
-understand the concept of time and units of time and how to measure it (length, weight, capacity)
-compare the length, weight and how much objects will hold by comparing them
-know about time and meaning of time words (morning, afternoon, evening, today, yesterday, tomorrow, week, year, clock, and calendar)
-know the names of the days of the week
-tell time to the nearest hour and average times of day when things occur
-ID common objects in environment and describe the geometric features (shapes)
-name and describe objects such as circles, triangles, square, rectangle, cube, sphere, and cone
-name and describe flat and solid objects by things they have in common

Mathematical Reasoning
-make decisions about how to set up a problem
-figure out how to solve math problems and what they need to solve them (objects and pencil and paper)
-draw my answers or use objects to solve them
-solve problems in reasonable ways and justify their reasoning
-explain answers to others using drawings or objects
-solve problems and check my answers to make sure they are correct
