BPS District Mathematics Standards Book

K-8 Grade Levels


Kindergarten logoThe kindergarten math BPS-prioritized standards were selected to equip your child with the essential building blocks for a strong foundation in math.

    This year in kindergarten math, your child will be building a strong foundation in numbers, shapes, and solving problems! They'll become counting champions, learning to skip count by 10s all the way to 100 and even count backwards from 20. Numbers will come alive as they practice writing them and recognizing groups of objects at a glance. They'll explore what makes numbers bigger or smaller, and even build numbers from 11 to 19 using groups of ten.
    We'll also dive into the world of word problems, helping them solve real-life situations by adding and subtracting within 10.  The fun doesn't stop there! Your child will become a shape detective, learning to identify and name different shapes regardless of their size or position. Finally, they'll develop sorting superpowers, learning to group objects together based on different features and explain their choices.
    This exciting journey will equip your child with the essential math skills they need to succeed in the future!

MAT-00.NO (NO) Number and Operations

  • MAT-00.NO.CC.01    Count verbally in sequential order by ones and tens to 100, making accurate decuple transitions (e.g., 89 to 90). Count verbally forward from any given number within 100.*
  • MAT-00.NO.CC.02    Count backward from 20 by ones and from a given number within 10.*
  • MAT-00.NO.CC.03    Identify and write any given numeral within 20.*
  • MAT-00.NO.CC.04    Recognize and verbally label arrangements, without counting, for briefly shown collections up to 10.*
  • MAT-00.NO.CC.05    Count and tell how many objects up to 20 are in an arranged pattern or up to 10 objects in a scattered configuration. Represent a quantity of up to 20 with a numeral.*
  • MAT-00.NO.NBT.01    Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 using a group of ten ones and some more ones using a model, drawing, or equation.*
  • MAT-00.NO.NBT.02    Compare two numbers between 1 and 20 using words greater than, less than, or equal to.*
  • Standards begin in first grade.

MAT-00.AR (AR) Algebraic Reasoning

  • MAT-00.AR.OA.01    Automatically add and subtract within 5.
  • MAT-00.AR.OA.02    For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, sharing the answer with a model, drawing, or equation.
  • MAT-00.AR.OA.03    Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way using verbal explanations, objects, or drawings.
  • MAT-00.AR.OA.04    Solve authentic word problems with addition by putting together or adding to within 10.*
  • MAT-00.AR.OA.05    Solve authentic word problems with subtraction by taking apart or taking from within 10.*
  • MAT-00.AR.OA.06    Recognize, duplicate, complete, and extend repeating patterns in a variety of contexts.*

MAT-00.GM (GM) Geometry

  • MAT-00.GM.G.01    Name shapes and identify them as two-dimensional regardless of their orientations or overall sizes.*
  • MAT-00.GM.G.02    Name shapes and identify them as three-dimensional (cubes and spheres) regardless of their orientations or overall sizes.
  • MAT-00.GM.G.03    Compare and classify two-dimensional shapes to describe their similarities, differences, and attributes (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles).
  • MAT-00.GM.G.04    Compose a geometric shape by combining two or more simple shapes.
  • MAT-00.GM.M.01    Compare and order two objects with a common measurable attribute.
  • MAT-00.GM.M.02    Tell time related to daily life (today,yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon, night).

MAT-00.DPS (DPS) Data Probability and Statistics

  • MAT-00.DPS.D.01    Sort and classify objects (up to 10)based on attributes and explain the reasoning used.*
