What is exponential growth and how does it happen? An example of exponential growth is the rate at which something multiplies in a time period. If two rabbits breed one day and the new born rabbits grow in a few months, the population will double within a few days. If we study population growth, we…

## Operations and Algebraic Thinking

You will see that there is a lot of emphasis on operations and algebra. In mathematics, we talk about what you need to know for each grade level. In pre-Kindergarten through 12th grades, it’s all about those pesky “operations.” From early counting with ones or tens up until being able add/subtract numbers in order– multiplication…

## Numbers and Operations in Base Ten

The first part of the math benchmark “Numbers and Operations in Base Ten” deals with the numbers from 11 to 19, and the beginnings of place value. Basically, you need to understand that a 1 is not just a one, but rather a ten, and that the number one is not the same as the…

## Measurement and Data

Objects have properties that can be measured. For example, length is a measurable attribute. To measure length, lay out multiple copies of the same-size object, ending at one end. Then, measure the two objects and compare the results. This will allow you to calculate the total length of each. Once you’ve determined the total length,…

## The Basics of Geometry

Basics of geometry is the study of shapes and their relationships to one another. Shapes can be flat, like squares or circles; they could also have depth such as cubes (3D) and spheres(2 dimensional).The input text above was very brief so I added some more detail about what exactly these terms mean in order for…
