Showing alignments for:


PK.1.0 Students will algebraically represent, model, analyze, or solve mathematical or real-world problems involving patterns or functional relationships.

PK.2.0 Students will apply the properties of one-, two-, or three-dimensional geometric figures to describe reason, or solve problems about shape, size, position, or motion of objects.

PK.3.0 Students will identify attributes, units or systems of measurements or apply a variety of techniques, formulas, tools or technology for determining measurements.

PK.4.0 Students will collect, organize, display, analyze, or interpret data to make decisions or predictions.

PK.6.0 Students will describe, represent, or apply numbers or their relationships or will estimate or compute using mental strategies, paper/pencil, or technology.

PK.7.0 Students demonstrate the process of mathematics by making connections and applying reasoning to solve and to communicate their findings.
