# Mathematics

## Proficiencies

**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.
