Math-Unit 1: Coins, and Combinations: Addition, Subtraction, and the Number System 1

This unit focuses on counting and comparing quantities, composing and decomposing numbers, and understanding the operations of addition and subtraction. Students develop strategies for comparing, combining, and doubling quantities, as well as taking one quantity away. They also achieve fluency with three sets of addition combinations (10s, + 1, + 2). During this first unit of the year, students are introduced to several year-long classroom routines that offer regular practice with composing and decomposing numbers; developing visual images of quantities; counting, collecting, and analyzing data; and telling time.
