WHAT SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES DID YOU

NOTICE?

BE PREPARED TO SHARE A FINDING.

### PRIMARY FOCAL AREAS

The primary focal areas in Kindergarten are understanding counting and cardinality, understanding addition as joining and subtraction as separating, and comparing objects by measurement attributes.

The primary focal areas in Grade 1 are understanding and applying place value, solving problems involving addition and subtraction, and composing and decomposing two-dimensional shapes and three dimensional solids.

The primary focal areas in Grade 2 are making comparisons within the base-10 place value system, solving problems with addition and subtraction within 1,000, and building foundations for multiplication.

The primary focal areas in Grade 3 are place value, operations of whole numbers, and understanding fractional units.

The primary focal areas in Grade 4 are use of operations, fractions, and decimals; and describing and analyzing geometry and measurement.

The primary focal areas in Grade 5 are solving problems involving all four operations with positive rational numbers; determining and generating formulas and solutions to expressions; and extending measurement to area and volume.

The primary focal areas in Grade 6 are number and operations; proportionality; expressions, equations, and relationships; and measurement and data.

The primary focal areas in Grade 7 are number and operations; proportionality; expressions, equations, and relationships; and measurement and data.

The primary focal areas in Grade 8 are proportionality; expressions, equations, relationships, and foundations of functions; and measurement and data.

How do these focal areas benefit the student over time?

What commonalities do you see?
