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 In this unit students learn about counting, alike and different, sorting, and sorting by one attribute. They also study numbers that are the same, numbers that are more than, and numbers that are less than. Unit 2 - Use Numbers 0 to 5 In this unit students discover the numbers 0 through 5. They learn how they can use numbers every day. Unit 3 - Describe Position and Patterns In this unit students explore how to type the numbers 0 to 5. They practice counting and learn to compare numbers. Unit 4 - Describe Position and Patterns In this unit students learn to describe position, including over, under, above and below. They learn to use these position words, as well as top, middle, bottom, in front, and behind. Unit 5 - Numbers to 6 to 10 In this unit students practice counting, and discover the numbers 6 through 10. They discuss using these numbers. Unit 6 - Use Numbers to 10 In this unit students learn to compare numbers to 10 and to count objects to 10. They also learn to type the numbers 6 through 10 and explore finding bigger and smaller numbers. Unit 7 - Introduction to Numbers to 20 In this unit students are introduced to ten-frames. They count to 100 and learn the numbers 11 through 20. Following this unit students are presented with the Mid-term Exam. Unit 8 - Use Numbers to 20 In this unit students learn to type the numbers 11 through 20, and practice counting from 10 to 20. They compare numbers to 20, counting on, finding missing numbers, and counting by tens. Unit 9 - Comparing Measurements In this unit students begin by describing objects. learning about color, longer than, and shorter than. They go on to compare weight, capacity, area, and objects. They also practice counting by tens and by hundreds. Unit 10 - 2-Dimensional Figures In this unit students are introduced to 2-dimensional shapes. They study rectangles, squares, circles, triangles, and hexagons. They also study comparing 2-dimensional shapes, as well as 2-dimensional shapes in position. Unit 11 - 3-Dimensional Figures In this unit students are introduced to solid figures (3-dimensional shapes). They learn to recognize cubes, spheres, cones, and cylinders, explore the difference between 2-D and 3-D figures, review 2-D and 3-D figures, and learn to recognize shapes all around them. Unit 12 - Introduction to Addition In this unit students are introduced to addition. They learn about addition stories, using objects to add, and the addition sign. Students begin to learn math facts. They study making 4 and making 5. Unit 13 - More Addition In this unit students learn to make 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. They practice more addition and do memorization and math fact drills. Unit 14 - Introduction to Subtraction In this unit, students are introduced to subtraction. They explore subraction stories, and learn to use objects to subtract. They are introduced to the subtraction sign, and learn about taking away from 4 and from 5. Unit 15 - More Subtraction In this unit students learn about taking away from 6, 7, 8, and 9. They also practice subtraction. Unit 16 - Addition and Subtraction In this unit, students review addition and learn about the equal sign. They practice addition and subtraction, and learn about adding larger numbers. Following this unit students are presented with the Final Exam.
