  • develop understanding of whole numbers up to 1,200
  • compose and decompose numbers through 1,200 as a sum of so many thousands, so many hundreds, so many tens, and so many ones (ex. 122 as 1 hundred, 2 tens, and 2 ones or 11 tens and 12 ones) using concrete objects, pictorial models, and numerical representations
  • generate numbers that are more or less than a given number
  • compare numbers using language and symbols
  • use open number lines to order numbers and find and locate specific points on a number line of numbers up to 1,200
  • develop their knowledge of basic addition and subtraction facts, fact families
  • odd and even numbers

Something to Think About

"A lack of fact fluency can be crippling for emerging mathematicians. Students who don’t understand number relationships struggle to use mathematics to solve problems, because they are using all of their mental energy on basic facts. A strategy based approach for learning facts leads to automaticity while at the same time it helps students understand how numbers are related. But instruction needs to go hand-in-hand with practice to build speed and fluency." -Donna Boucher
