## Pre-Kindergarten Math Curriculum

The New York State pre-kindergarten math curriculum is mostly focused on counting. By the end of pre-kindergarten, students should be able to count to 20 and represent up to 5 objects as a written number.

## Kindergarten Math Curriculum

The New York State kindergarten math curriculum expands on the counting learned in pre-kindergarten and introduces addition and subtraction. By the end of kindergarten, students will have learned to count to 100 starting from any number, skip count to 100 by 10s, represent up to 20 objects as a written number, and compare groups of objects. They will also begin to learn simple addition and subtraction with objects, numbers, and word problems.

The New York State 1st grade math curriculum incorporates the addition and subtraction learned in kindergarten into word problems. The word problems may also call for the addition of 3 whole numbers with a sum of 20 or less. Skip counting is expanded upon to skip by single digit numbers. In addition, by the end of 1st grade, students will have learned to determine the unknown number in an addition or subtraction equation, count to 120 starting at any number, identify the tens and ones values in two-digit numbers, and compare two-digit numbers.

The New York State 2nd grade math curriculum greatly expands on the types and depth of math problems that students saw in 1st grade. By the end of 2nd grade, students should be able to solve one- and two-step word problems using addition and subtraction within 100; fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies; identify if a group of objects has an odd or even number of members;  identify the hundreds, tens, and ones values in three-digit numbers; count within 1,000 and skip count by 5s, 10s, and 100s; add up to 4 two-digit numbers; measure the length of objects using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters; tell time in 5-minute increments; count coins whose sum is one dollar or less; and classify two-dimensional figures as polygons or non-polygons.
