Grade K Math leads students through the rudimentary concepts required for math, preparing them for mathematical operations. The use of colorful and varied manipulatives and graphics in the video lessons adds variety and helps students stay focused on and interested in the subject matter.
Course Objectives & Student Learning OutcomesUpon completion of Acellus Kindergarten Math, students will be able to compare and sort objects for same or different attributes; type, count, compare, and order numbers 0 – 20; as well as identify positioning and patterns to include predicting. Students will be able to collect and record data to include graphing; compare length, weight, capacity, area, and temperature; express time of day with clocks, identify days of week and months in year to include calendar use; and identify and work with the basic monetary units to include pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. Finally, students will be able to identify and compare 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional geometric shapes and attributes; use objects to add and subtract, solve addition and subtraction word problems; and identify the plus, subtraction, or equal signs.
Scope and SequenceUnit 1 – Compare and Sort Objects This unit covers sorting by single or multiple attributes and comparing to determine things that are the same, things that are different, and groups with more, fewer, or the same number of objects. Unit 2 – Use Numbers 0 to 5 This unit covers the meaning of the numbers 0 through 5, as well as typing, counting, comparing, and ordering these numbers. Unit 3 – Describe Position and Patterns This unit describes positioning, including over, under, above, and below, as well as top, middle, bottom, before, and after. It discusses how to identify patterns, including object, sound, movement, and prediction patterns. Unit 4 – Use Numbers to 10 This unit covers the meaing of the numbers 6 through 10 as well as typing these numbers, comparing, ordering, and counting backwards with the numbers 0 through 10. The unit also covers Ordinal Numbers and Counting to 100, as well asl Counting forward and backward from 0 to 10. Unit 5 – Construct and Use Graphs This unit covers collecting and recording data, including performing a survey, how to read graphs, and graphing using real objects and picture graphs. Unit 6 – Use Numbers to 20 This unit covers the meaning of the numbers 11 through 20, as well as typing, comparing, and ordering these numbers. Unit 7 – Compare Measurements This unit covers comparing length, weight, capacity, area, and temperature, and ordering length. Unit 8 – Use Numbers Beyond 20 This unit covers the meaning of the numbers 21 through 30, as well as comparing and ordering these numbers and estimating. Unit 9 – Time / Money This unit covers basic concepts of time, including time of day (morning, afternoon, and evening), the days of the week, yesterday, today, and tomorrow, how to read a calendar, and how to use an analog and a digital clock. It also covers identifying and understanding the value of the basic monetary units (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters). Unit 10 – Describe Geometric Figures This unit introduces concepts of geometry including basic 2- and 3-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, circles, triangles, cubes, spheres, cones, and cylinders), the differences between 2- and 3-dimensional figures, basic properties of 3-dimensional objects (rolling, sliding, and stacking), equal parts, and 2-dimensional figures in position. Unit 11 – Model Addition This unit includes using objects to add, solving addition stories, recognizing the addition sign, and adding to make the numbers 4 through 9, as well as practicing addition. Unit 12 – Model Subtraction This unit includes using objects to subtract, solving subtraction stories, recognizing the subtraction sign, and subtracting from the numbers 4 through 9, as well as recognizing the equals sign and practicing addition.
