Grades 3–5
Expectations
Algebra
Instructional programs from prekindergarten
through grade 12 should enable all students to—
Standard
Understand patterns, relations, and
functions
Represent and analyze mathematical
situations and structures using algebraic
symbols
Use mathematical models to represent
and understand quantitative relationships
Analyze change in various contexts
In prekindergarten through grade 2 all students should—
• sort, classify, and order objects by size, number, and other
properties;
• recognize, describe, and extend patterns such as sequences of
sounds and shapes or simple numeric patterns and translate from
one representation to another;
• analyze how both repeating and growing patterns are generated.
• illustrate general principles and properties of operations, such as
commutativity, using specific numbers;
• use concrete, pictorial, and verbal representations to develop an
understanding of invented and conventional symbolic notations.
• model situations that involve the addition and subtraction of whole
numbers, using objects, pictures, and symbols.
• describe qualitative change, such as a student’s growing taller;
