Throughout the first grade experience, mathematically literate students will â€¦
Develop a Deep and Flexible Conceptual Understanding


explore and begin to apply number relationships as they develop number sense. As first graders are involved in meaningful practice with numbers they are becoming more fluent in addition and subtraction. A rich understanding of numbers involves using many different tools as they make connections with patterns, shapes, data, and measurement.

Develop Accurate and Appropriate Procedural Fluency 

demonstrate procedural fluency when they apply strategies and procedures to efficiently solve problems. First graders connect various meanings and relationships of numbers related to addition, subtraction, and measurement.

Develop Strategies for Problem Solving 

develop strategies for problem solving when they engage in problembased learning involving realworld mathematical situations. Students are able to develop a strategy using learning tools for solving a variety of problems and check the reasonableness of their solution.

Develop Mathematical Reasoning 

display mathematical reasoning when they are able to determine reasonableness of their solutions and their peers' solutions. Students are able to explain their thinking and strategies about the mathematical processes involved in finding solutions.

Develop a Productive Mathematical Disposition 

begin to see numbers as an essential skill that helps them understand and persevere to solve problems in the world around them. Students begin to see relationships in numbers and develop a natural curiosity for numbers and patterns in their world.

Develop the Ability to Make Conjectures, Model, and Generalize


develop strategies to understand number patterns and relationships by making predictions and drawing conclusions to solve everyday problems. Students use learning tools (pictures, manipulatives, symbols, graphs, etc.) to make sense of problems.

Develop the Ability to Communicate Mathematically 

begin to expand their vocabulary with mathspecific language to precisely describe the world around them. Communication becomes the heart of the studentsâ€™ exploration, solidifying their ideas through cooperative, meaningful, conversations. This occurs when students have the opportunity to listen, question, and respond appropriately through peer interactions.
