## Pre-K Grade Level Goals

Everyday Mathematics third-edition Grade Level Goals have been revised to align with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M), which were widely adopted in 2010. Both versions of the curriculum's goals are available below. For more information on standards, please see Meeting Standards with Everyday Mathematics.

### Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Edition Grade Level Goals

Program Goal | Content Thread | Grade-Level Goal |
---|---|---|

Understand the Meanings, Uses, and Representations of Numbers | Rote counting | Verbally count in sequence to 10 and beyond; develop flexibility in counting, including counting on and counting backward. |

Rational counting | Count objects with one-to-one correspondence and know the last counting word tells "how many." | |

Place value and notation | Develop an awareness of numbers and their uses; associate number names, quantities, and written numerals; recognize and use different ways to represent numbers (for example, groups of objects or dots). | |

Understand Common Numerical Relations | Comparing and ordering numbers | Compare and order groups of objects using words such as more, fewer, less, same. |

Program Goal | Content Thread | Grade-Level Goal |
---|---|---|

Understand Meanings of Operations | Models for the operations | Solve and create number stories using concrete modeling; explore part-whole relationships (for example, 5 is made of 2 and 3). |

Program Goal | Content Thread | Grade-Level Goal |
---|---|---|

Select and Create Appropriate Graphical Representations of Collected or Given Data | Data collection and representation | Collect and represent data in a variety of ways, focusing on concrete and pictorial representations. |

Analyze and Interpret Data | Data analysis | Use graphs to answer simple questions. |

Program Goal | Content Thread | Grade-Level Goal |
---|---|---|

Understand the Systems and Processes of Measurement; Use Appropriate Techniques, Tools, Units, and Formulas in Making Measurements. | Length, weight, and angles | Distinguish and describe size attributes, including length, weight, and capacity or volume; compare objects according to various size attributes. |

Understand the Systems and Processes of Measurement; Use Appropriate Techniques, Tools, Units, and Formulas in Making Measurements | Units and systems of measurement | Become familiar with standard measuring tools and their uses; begin to understand the concept of measurement units and the idea that measurement can be quantified. |

Time | Sequence familiar events in time. |

Program Goal | Content Thread | Grade-Level Goal |
---|---|---|

Investigate Characteristics and Properties of Two- and Three-Dimensional Geometric Shapes | Plane and solid figures | Recognize and describe basic 2-dimensional geometric shapes; explore the relationships between basic 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes. |

Apply Transformations and Symmetry in Geometric Situations | Transformations and symmetry | Recognize and describe the position and location of objects; use spatial reasoning in concrete tasks, such as putting together puzzles and creating collages and block structures. |

Program Goal | Content Thread | Grade-Level Goal |
---|---|---|

Understand Patterns and Functions | Patterns and functions | Recognize and match attributes of objects, such as size, shape, and color; use rules to sort objects; use rules to create and extend repeating patterns. |
