Understanding includes connecting names, numerals and quantities, and partitioning numbers in various ways.

Fluency includes counting number in sequences readily forward and backwards, locating numbers on a line, and naming the days of the week.

Problem Solving includes using materials to model authentic problems, giving and receiving directions to unfamiliar places, and using familiar counting sequences to solve unfamiliar problems and discussing the reasonableness of the answer.

Reasoning includes explaining direct and indirect comparisons of length using uniform informal units, justifying representations of data, and explaining patterns that have been created.
