At Williams we use GO Math as our core math program as well as Every Day Math Calendar. GO Math is aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Through the use of daily, hands-on math lessons student are taught the fundamental math skills of operations and algebraic thinking, numbers and operations in base ten, measurement and data, and Geometry. Every Day Math Calendar is a supplemental math program that is used daily through morning meeting.
Below is a link to view the grade 1 standards that your child will be held accountable for by the end of first grade.
Common Core State Standards: Mathematics
Operations and Algebraic Thinking
Numbers and Operations in Base Ten
Measurement and Data
Currently we are in:
Chapter 11: 3D Geometry
In this chapter students will:
Identify and describe three-dimensional shapes
Reason with shapes and their attributes
Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
