Mathematics at the elementary level concentrates on number (which includes whole number, operations, and relations) and geometry, spatial relations, and measurement, with more mathematics learning time devoted to number than to other topics. With the adoption of Common Core Mathematics in North Carolina, students' instruction is framed in Practice Standards which define what children should know and be able to do in mathematics or the Content Standards which are defined for each grade level. View the resources linked below for more information on the Practice Standards and the Content Standards.
