Elementary Standards Progressions
The Florida mathematics standards progressively develop content each year. Concepts introduced in the primary grades become the foundation for new concepts in progressive years. The process introduces concrete concepts that become abstract ideas to further mathematical critical thinking. This follows the concrete – representational – abstract (CRA) model of development and instruction. Learn more about CRA.
The major areas of development are:
- Operations and Algebraic Thinking (PDF)
- Number and Operations in Base Ten (PDF)
- Number and Operations - Fractions (PDF)
- Measurement and Data (PDF)
- Geometry (PDF)
- Multiplication Progression
Each of these areas is outlined in the progression documents provided.
These documents are provided to use during planning for units of instruction. It is important to understand the standards of the grade level in which one is teaching as well as the progression of that standard: what students learned before and what they will be expected to learn in the future.
