Common Core State Standards alignment
- Kindergarten > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Geometry > Identify and describe shapes > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.G.A.2
Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size....
- Kindergarten > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Geometry > Identify and describe shapes > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.G.A.3
Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid")....
- Kindergarten > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Geometry > Analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.G.B.4
Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/"corners") and other attributes (e.g., having s...
- Grade 1 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Geometry > Reason with shapes and their attributes > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.1
Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes....
- Grade 2 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Geometry > Reason with shapes and their attributes > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.G.A.1
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes....
- Grade 3 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Measurement & Data > Geometry > Reason with shapes and their attributes > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.G.A.1
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangl...
- Grade 4 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Geometry > Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.G.A.2
Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles....
- Grade 4 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Geometry > Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.G.A.3
Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry....
- Grade 5 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Geometry > Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.B.3
Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles....
- Grade 5 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Geometry > Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.B.4
Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties....
