Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely with others by...  Stating the meaning of the symbols they choose (greater than, less than, equal...).  Using the equal sign consistently and appropriately to represent balance.  Use more and less appropriately  Difference between a digit in a place vs. the value (5 is in the tens place in 59, but its value is 50. SMP 7 Look for and make use of structure. Mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure by...  Notice repeating patterns on a number line or hundreds chart.  If the tens place is equal, know to look to the ones when comparing numbers.  Decade numbers, the zero represents that there are zero ones. The zero represents zero no matter where it is located.  Teen numbers represent one group of ten with a certain amount of ones.  Position of numbers determines the value of the number. (17 vs. 71) Prior Learning: In Kindergarten, students counted to 100 by 1s and 10s. They began at any given number within the known sequence. They wrote and represented numbers from 020 and represented a number of objects with a written numeral from 020. Students compared the number of objects in one group to the number of objects in another group. Students also compared two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals. Current Learning: This is a critical area in Grade One. Read the overview of K5 Number and Operations in Base 10 Learning Progressions for background information for this unit. Teachers may create numeral lists and visual supports as teaching tools (p.6). Throughout the year, students write and read numerals up to 120. The reading, writing and representing numerals are being taught at a developmental level in this unit. Also, students compare two 2digit numbers using concrete models and oral discussion. The emphasis for students is on understanding the concept of equality, not limited to the appropriate use of the equal symbol in comparing numbers. See CCSS Glossary p.90 Table 4 for the properties of equality, in particular the Reflexive Property of Equality. Future Learning: In grade two, students will read and write numbers up to 1,000. They will compare threedigit numbers using symbols for greater than, less than and the equal symbol. Notes from Progressions Document: Kindergarten:  The English language causes students to struggle with teen numbers  can use both.  Number bond diagrams  Layered place value (sometimes called arrow cards) Grade Two:  Comparing 3digit numbers (viewing 10 tens as a hundred)  Don’t differentiate until they can justify two numbers like Student A from the NC document

How do you know when you are When adding/subtracting 2, how is that like counting?  SMP 1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.  Understand the meaning of the problem.  Use concrete objects or pictures to solve a problem.  Know and flexibly use different properties of operations and objects. SMP 2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively.  Decontextualize and recontextualize.  Use concrete objects or pictures to solve a problem.  Attend to the meaning of quantities.  Use objects, drawings or equations to represent the problem. Prior Learning: In Kindergarten, students represented addition and subtraction word problems with pictures, sounds and mental images or equations. Students also decomposed numbers ten and less into pairs more than one way. They used pictures or objects and recorded the decomposition by a drawing or equation. When given any number 19, students found the number that made 10 by using objects or drawings. Students fluently added and subtracted within 5. Current Learning: This is a critical area in Grade One. Subtraction is a developmental concept as this is the first experience students will have this year. They use subtraction to solve word problems  refer to p.88, Table 1 in the CCSS for addition and subtraction situations and problem types. Another developmental skill with a strong connection to Unit One is understanding the meaning of the equal sign involving addition and subtraction. Later in the year, students will demonstrate fluency with addition and subtraction within 10. They will determine if equations are true or false. They will work with unknowns in all positions and the associative property of addition. Future Learning: In grade two, students will use addition and subtraction within 100 in all situations to solve one and twostep word problems with unknowns in all positions. Students will fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. They will know, from memory, all sums of two onedigit numbers.

Understand and apply properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction. 1.OA.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.2 Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
Add and subtract within 20. 1.OA.6 Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 – 4 = 13 – 3 – 1 = 10 – 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Work with addition and subtraction equations. 1.OA.7 Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false? 6 = 6, 7 = 8 – 1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 +
 What is the relationship between addition and subtraction? Explain with pictures, words, or equations: What are the Fact Families? How does a Fact Family help you solve math problems? Use manipulatives to commute a number sentence for: Addition and Subtraction  SMP 8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. Mathematically proficient students notice if calculations are repeated, and look both for general methods and for shortcuts.  Notices that 3+7 and 7+3 are equal  Notices that 2+3+5=8+2  Composes and decomposes numbers to 20 using pictures and objects Prior Learning: In kindergarten, students solved addition word problems within 10 using objects, fingers, mental images, simple drawings, sounds, acting out, verbal explanations, or equations. Students used drawings or equations to decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 (5 = 2 + 3; 5 = 4 + 1). For any number 1–9, students found the number that made 10 when added to a given number by using objects or drawing and recorded answers with an equation or drawing. Students became fluent adding and subtracting within 5. Kindergarten students were exposed to equations and the equals sign symbol (=), and were encouraged to write equations, but writing equations was not required. Current Learning: This is a critical area of learning in Grade 1. In this unit, students relate counting to addition to solve word problems within 20 using strategies involving adding to and putting together using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number. Working with the commutative property of addition (8 + 3 = 11; 3 + 8 = 11) encourages students to use counting on strategies when combining quantities. As the year goes on students will add within 20 using a variety of strategies to include: counting on, making a ten, and creating equivalent, but easier known sums. They develop understanding of the meaning of the equals sign (=). This is taught at the developmental level. Future Learning: In second grade, students will develop understanding of odd and even within 20 and will fluently add within 20 using mental strategies. Students will add and subtract within 1,000 using concrete models, drawings, and strategies based on the properties of operations, place value, and the relationship between addition and subtraction; they will fluently add and subtract within 100 using these strategies. Third grade students will generalize these strategies to larger numbers, and in fourth grade students will be expected to fluently apply the standard algorithm for addition and subtraction.

(Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
1.OA.4 Understand subtraction as an unknownaddend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
Add and subtract within 20. 1.OA.6 Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 – 4 = 13 – 3 – 1 = 10 – 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13). • Apply the commutative property to add and subtract (e.g., if 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11, 11 – 3 = 8 and 11 – 8 = 3 is also known—“fact family”).  Apply the associative property to add (e.g, if 3+4+7 is the given expression, than students can rearrange the addends to (3+7) + 4 or 4 + (7+3) to take advantage of the 10 and simplify the calculation). • Understand subtraction as an unknown addend problem. (e.g., subtract 10 – 8 by finding a number that makes 10 when added to 8.) • Relate counting to addition and subtraction. • Add and subtract within 20 using multiple efficient strategies (e.g., counting on, making ten, relating addition to subtraction, etc.)  What strategies can we use to add?

Prior Learning: In kindergarten, students decomposed numbers ten and less into pairs more than one way. They used pictures or objects and recorded the decomposition by a drawing or equation. When given any number 1–9, students found the number that made ten by using objects or drawings. Students fluently added and subtracted within 5. Current Learning: This is a critical area in Grade 1. Subtraction is a developmental concept as this is the first experience students will have this year. They use subtraction to solve problems and understand subtraction as an unknown addend problem. Refer to p. 88, Table 1 in the Common Core State Standards Mathematics for addition and subtraction situations and problem types going forward. In the CCSS, strategies such as counting on, making ten, decomposing a number leading to a ten, and using the relationship between addition and subtraction are used. Students create equivalent but easier known sums. (Students do not need to know/use formal names for commutative and associative properties, however, modeling appropriate math language and connecting it to studentfriendly language is always optimal). Future Learning: In grade 2, students will use addition and subtraction within 100 in all situations to solve one and twostep word problems with unknowns in all positions. Students will fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. They will know, from memory, all sums of two onedigit numbers.

Students also wrote numbers 0–20 and represented a number of objects with a written numeral 0–20. Students began to build the foundation for place value by composing and decomposing numbers from 11–19 into ten ones and some further ones by using objects or drawings or equations. Students compared the number of objects in one group to the number of objects in another group. Students also compared two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as a written numeral. Current Learning: Place value is a critical area of instruction in first grade. Students understand that the two digits of a 2 digit number represent bundles of tens and some ones.

Measure lengths indirectly and by iterating length units. 1.MD.1. Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object. 1.MD.2. Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of samesize length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps. • Compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object (if a > b and b > c then a > c; transitivity). • Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units (by laying multiple copies of a shorter object end to end). • Understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of samesize length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.  Which one of these three objects is the longest/shortest? How do you know? What is the length of this object? How do you know? (Use familiar materials.) Explain how to use this measuring tool (ruler, blocks, etc.)  5. Use appropriate tools strategically. Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a measurement problem. Prior Learning In kindergarten, students did direct comparisons by comparing two objects with a measurable attribute in common (taller/shorter). They classified objects into given categories, counted the numbers in each category (up to 10) and sorted the categories by count. Current Learning Students order three objects by length.. In this unit, these concepts are taught at the reinforcement level. In this unit, students compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object (see Additional Findings below on transitivity). Refer to CCSS (p. 90), Table 4 for further information on the transitive property of equality (if a = b and b = c then a = c) and Table 5 for the properties of inequality (if a > b and b > c then a > c). Students express the length as a whole number of length units. These skills are taught at the developmental level. Future Learning In grade 2, students will select and use appropriate tools to measure objects. They will be measuring to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the difference in terms of a standard length unit. Students will also estimate lengths using inches, feet, centimeters, and meters. Students will measure the same object using different units of measure.

• Understand defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and threesided). • Understand nondefining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size). • Distinguish between defining and nondefining attributes. • Build shapes to understand defining attributes. • Draw shapes to understand defining attributes.  What are some attributes that don’t define shapes? What shape is this? How do you know?
How do you draw a ______?
How did you sort these shapes? (What is your sorting rule?)
What do all _______ have that are not the same? (Example: Triangles are closed and threesided.)  7. Look for and make use of structure. Make connections by sorting shapes according to defining and nondefining attributes. Make connections using manipulatives. Prior Learning Students named objects in the environment using names of shapes. They also named shapes correctly regardless of orientation. Students analyzed and compared two and threedimensional shapes describing their similarities and differences using informal language. Students built and drew shapes as well as composing simple shapes to form larger ones. Current Learning In this unit, students distinguish between defining (number of sides, number of vertices) and nondefining (color, size, orientation) attributes and use this formal language to describe shapes. They expand knowledge of twodimensional shapes (square, circle, triangle, hexagon, rectangle, and trapezoid) using defining attributes and they draw and build shapes to distinguish defining attributes (draw/build closed shape with four equal sides). This is being taught at the developmental level. Later in the year, students will compose twodimensional and threedimensional shapes to make composite shapes. Future Learning In second grade, students will use their knowledge of attributes to recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes (number of angles or faces).

Prior Learning In kindergarten, students counted to 100 by 1s and 10s. They began at any given number within the known sequence. They wrote and represented numbers from 0–20 and represented a number of objects with a written numeral 0–20. Students compared the number of objects in one group to the number of objects in another group. Students also compared two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals. Current Learning This is a critical area in Grade 1. Read the overview of the K–5 Number and Operations in Base 10 Learning Progressions for background information for this unit. Teachers may create numeral lists and visual supports as teaching tools (p. 6). Earlier in the year, students write and read numerals 0 to 30. The reading, writing, and representing of numerals 31–60 are being taught at the developmental level in this unit. Also, students compare two 2digit numbers up to 30 using concrete materials and oral discussion. In this unit, students compare two 2 digit numbers up to 60 at the developmental level. Continue to reinforce comparing numbers within the range of 0–30. The emphasis for students is on understanding the concept of equality, not limited to the appropriate use of the equal symbol in comparing numbers. The concept of equality is reinforced, but using the equal symbol to compare two 2digit numbers is at the developmental level. See CCSS Glossary p. 90 Table 4 for the properties of equality, in particular the Reflexive Property of Equality. Later in the year, students use the symbols for greater than and less than to compare numbers up to 120. Students also read, write, and represent numbers up to 120 based on meanings of tens and ones. Future Learning In grade 2, students will read and write numbers up to 1,000. They will compare threedigit numbers using the symbols for greater than, less than, and the equal symbol.

Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares. • Partition circles into two and four equal shares. • Partition rectangles into two and four equal shares. • Describe the shares using the word halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. • Describe the whole as two of or four of the shares. • Understand that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.

Mathematically proficient students understand and use stated assumptions, definitions, and previously established results in constructing arguments. Use concrete objects, pictures, diagrams, and actions to solve and understand problems and solutions.
Prior Learning In kindergarten, students composed simple shapes to form larger shapes. They identified shapes as two or threedimensional. They also built and drew shapes. Current Learning Earlier in grade 1, students compose simple shapes to form larger shapes, so they understand that a whole can be composed of smaller parts. This is taught at the reinforcement level. In this unit, students build on this concept by recognizing that fractional parts of a whole must be equal in size. They can decompose these shapes into two or four equal shares. Students use mathematical terms to describe the whole and its fractional parts (half of, fourth of, quarter of, halves, fourths, equal share, whole). This is taught at the developmental level. These skills are not considered a critical area of focus for grade 1. According to A Research Companion to Principles and Standards for School
Mathematics, a conceptual breakthrough for students is to understand that the magnitude of a quantity (e.g., the whole) is unchanged when the size of the shares changes. (p. 101) conceptualizing fractions is based on conceiving two quantities as being in a reciprocal relationship of relative size. For example, if a share is one half of the size of the whole, then the whole is twice as large as the share. (p. 107) Future Learning In grade 2, students will decompose circles and rectangles into thirds and describe the whole as three of the shares. The shares are equal and smaller. Students will partition a rectangle into rows and columns of samesize squares and count to find the total number of them. In addition, students will partition circles and rectangles into three equal shares and describe the shares using the words thirds and a third of, and they will describe the whole as three thirds. Finally, they will recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape. Grade 3 will be the first time students represent equal shares of a figure using fraction notation (e.g., 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 3/4).

Now, how can you use this new shape to form more (2D) shapes? How can these shapes fit together to form larger shapes (i.e., 3D shapes)? Now how can you use this new shape to form more (3D) shapes?  3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Mathematically proficient students understand and use stated assumptions, definitions, and previously established results in constructing arguments.
Prior Learning In kindergarten, students composed simple shapes to form larger shapes (e.g., Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?) They also identified shapes as twodimensional or threedimensional. Current Learning In grade 1, students put together 2D shapes (such as triangles) to compose other geometric shapes (such as a trapezoid). They put together 2D shapes (such as a square and a rectangle) to create a composite shape (such as a house). These are being taught at the reinforcement level in grade 1. At the developmental level, students take apart a 2D composite shape to make a new shape. Also, students put together 3D shapes (such as cubes) to compose other geometric shapes (such as rectangular prisms). They put together 3D shapes (such as cubes and a cone) to create a composite shape (such as a rocket). Students take apart a 3D composite shape to make a new shape. These skills are being taught at the developmental level. Teachers can reference van Hiele Theory of Geometric Thought for the levels of understanding. Also, reference Elementary and Middle School Mathematics (p. 353) by John A, Van De Walle for the four types of tangram puzzles that illustrate the range of difficulty levels. Future Learning In second grade, students will recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes (e.g., number of angles or a given number of equal faces). They will identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
