Alignments coming soon

IXL's pre-K skills will be aligned to the D.C. Early Learning Standards soon! Until then, you can view a complete list of pre-K standards below. Be sure to check out the unlimited math practice problems in IXL's 42 pre-K skills.


PK.MT.4.0 Children make sense of the world around them and understand the physical world through mathematics experiences involving number concepts, patterns, functions, and Algebra, measurement, geometry and spatial sense, and data analysis and probability.

  • PK.MT.4.1 Children demonstrate a beginning understanding of number and operations and how they relate to one another.

    • PK.MT.4.1.1 Use one-to-one correspondence.

    • PK.MT.4.1.2 Count with understanding to at least 10.

    • PK.MT.4.1.3 Use numbers to tell how many (number quantity).

    • PK.MT.4.1.4 Use numbers and counting as a means to solve problems, predict, and measure quantities.

    • PK.MT.4.1.5 Recognize and name numerals up to 10.

    • PK.MT.4.1.6 Quickly recognizes quantity of small groups of objects up to 4.

    • PK.MT.4.1.7 Construct sets of a given number using concrete objects (e.g., fingers, counters).

    • PK.MT.4.1.8 Use concrete objects to solve simple addition and subtraction problems using comparative language (more than, fewer than, same number of).

    • PK.MT.4.1.9 Use ordinal numbers and positional words in everyday activities.

  • PK.MT.4.2 Children demonstrate a beginning understanding of patterns and use mathematical representations to describe patterns.

    • PK.MT.4.2.1 Sort and classify objects by more than one attribute (color, shape, size, number, etc.).

    • PK.MT.4.2.2 Recognize, describe, and copy simple patterns.

  • PK.MT.4.3 Children use a variety of non-standard and standard tools to measure and use appropriate language terms to describe size, length, weight, and volume.

    • PK.MT.4.3.1 Use non-standard and standard units to measure length, weight, and amount of content in familiar objects and to obtain information.

    • PK.MT.4.3.2 Identify appropriate tools of measurement.

    • PK.MT.4.3.3 Show awareness of time concepts and sequence.

  • PK.MT.4.4 Children begin to demonstrate an understanding of shape, size, position, direction, and movement, and they describe and classify real objects by shape.

    • PK.MT.4.4.1 Recognize, name, and describe simple two- and three- dimensional shapes.

    • PK.MT.4.4.2 Match, sort, and classify shapes.

    • PK.MT.4.4.3 Put together and take apart shapes to make new shapes.

    • PK.MT.4.4.4 Create shapes using concrete materials, e.g., straws.

    • PK.MT.4.4.5 Describe, name, and interpret distance and position in space; understand and use positional words.

  • PK.MT.4.5 Children question, collect, organize, represent, interpret, and analyze data to answer questions.

    • PK.MT.4.5.1 Graph real objects or pictures of objects (no more than three) as a way to organize information.

    • PK.MT.4.5.2 Describe and analyze information from graphs.
