Mathematics Curriculum Framework - November 2000
Learning Standards by Strand
for Grades Pre K - K
Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships
Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems
Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems
Students engage in problem solving, communicating, reasoning, connecting, and representing as they:
Name, describe, sort, and draw simple two-dimensional shapes.
Describe attributes of two-dimensional shapes, e.g., number of sides, number of corners.
Name and compare three-dimensional shapes.
Identify positions of objects in space, and use appropriate language (e.g., beside, inside, next to, close to, above, below, apart) to describe and compare their relative positions.
Exploratory Concepts and Skills
- Investigate symmetry of two- and three-dimensional shapes and constructions.
