Education Development Center, Inc.
In the domain of "Operations & Algebraic Thinking," Common Core State Standards indicate that in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade, children should demonstrate and expand their ability to understand, represent, and solve problems using the operations of addition and subtraction, laying the foundation for operations using multiplication (National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers, 2010). This brief describes the concepts and skills involved in helping K-2 children demonstrate and expand their ability to understand, represent, and solve addition and subtraction problems, laying the foundation for operations using multiplication.
