Math Expectations for Measurement - Length

Students need to choose and use non-standard units appropriately to measure lengths, and describe the inverse relationship between the size of a unit and the number of units needed; explain the relationship between centimetres and metres as units of length, and use benchmarks for these units to estimate lengths; measure and draw lengths in centimetres and metres, using a measuring tool, and recognize the impact of starting at points other than zero

Students need to use appropriate units of length to estimate, measure, and compare the perimeters of polygons and curved shapes, and construct polygons with a given perimeter; explain the relationships between millimetres, centimetres, metres, and kilometres as metric units of length, and use benchmarks for these units to estimate lengths; use non-standard units appropriately to estimate, measure, and compare capacity, and explain the effect that overfilling or underfilling, and gaps between units, have on accuracy; compare, estimate, and measure the mass of various objects, using a pan balance and non-standard units; use various units of different sizes to measure the same attribute of a given item, and demonstrate that even though using different-sized units produces a different count, the size of the attribute remains the same

Math Expectation for 2D and 3D Shapes
Students need to sort and identify two-dimensional shapes by comparing number of sides, side lengths, angles, and number of lines of symmetrycompose and decompose two-dimensional shapes, and show that the area of a shape remains constant regardless of how its parts are rearranged; identify congruent lengths and angles in two-dimensional shapes by mentally and physically matching them, and determine if the shapes are congruent

Students need to sort, construct, and identify cubesprismspyramidscylinders, and cones by comparing their faces, edges, vertices, and angles; compose and decompose various structures, and identify the two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects that these structures contain; identify congruent lengths, angles, and faces of three-dimensional objects by mentally and physically matching them, and determine if the objects are congruent

Math Expectations for Number Sense - Addition and Subtraction
Students are expected to use the properties of addition and subtraction, and the relationships between addition and multiplication and between subtraction and division, to solve problems and check  calculations; recall and demonstrate addition facts for numbers up to 20, and related subtraction facts; use mental math strategies, including estimation, to add and subtract whole numbers that add up to no more than 50, and explain the strategies used; use objects, diagrams, and equations to represent, describe, and solve situations involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers that add up to no more than 100

Students are expected to use mental math strategies, including estimation, to add and subtract whole numbers that add up to no more than 1000, and explain the strategies used; demonstrate an understanding of algorithms for adding and subtracting whole numbers by making connections to and describing the way other tools and strategies are used to add and subtract; represent and solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of whole numbers that add up to no more than 1000, using various tools and algorithms
