Math Curriculum » First Grade
In first grade, math instructional time focuses on: 1) developing strategies for adding and subtracting numbers within 20; 2) developing an understanding of number relationships and place value for numbers to 99; 3) developing basic understanding of measurement of length using common objects of the same length; 4) recognizing and knowing the value of coins; 5) telling time to the half hour; 6) understanding and showing simple data; and 7) exploring 2D and 3D shapes.
