COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS:
Describe and compare measurable attributes.
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
Relate addition and subtraction to length.
Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.
Work with Time and Money
Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s.
Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, e.g., by pairing objects or counting them by 2s; write an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes.
Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.
Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division.
Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.
Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths
Analyze patterns and relationships.
Reason about and solve one variable equations and inequalities.
