    Synopsis of Curriculum

    The First Grade Mathematics curriculum is divided into five general areas: Numbers and Operations; Algebraic Concepts; Measurement, Data and Probability; Geometry; and Problem Solving.  First grade students learn to extend the counting sequence. The students will use place value to represent tens and ones, to compare two digit numbers, and, to add and subtract within 100.  First grade students will learn to represent and solve problems using addition and subtraction within 20.  The students will also learn to apply the properties of the operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.  The students will learn to compose and distinguish between two and three dimensional shapes based on their attributes, and, will use fractions to partition shapes into halves and quarters. First grade students will learn to order lengths and measure them indirectly and by repeating length units.  The students will tell time to the nearest half hour using both an analog clock and a digital one.  The students will also represent and interpret data using charts and tables.
