Geometry Standard for Grades Pre-K-2

 

 

Expectations 

Instructional programs from prekindergarten through grade 12 should enable all students to—  In prekindergarten through grade 2 all students should— 
Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships
  • recognize, name, build, draw, compare, and sort two- and three-dimensional shapes;
  • describe attributes and parts of two- and three-dimensional shapes;
  • investigate and predict the results of putting together and taking apart two- and three-dimensional shapes.
 
Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems
  • describe, name, and interpret relative positions in space and apply ideas about relative position;
  • describe, name, and interpret direction and distance in navigating space and apply ideas about direction and distance;
  • find and name locations with simple relationships such as "near to" and in coordinate systems such as maps.
 
Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations
  • recognize and apply slides, flips, and turns;
  • recognize and create shapes that have symmetry.
 
Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems
  • create mental images of geometric shapes using spatial memory and spatial visualization;
  • recognize and represent shapes from different perspectives;
  • relate ideas in geometry to ideas in number and measurement;
  • recognize geometric shapes and structures in the environment and specify their location.
