By the end of first grade, your student will need to understand the connection between counting and addition/subtraction, have the ability to break down the numbers between 19-100 into ones and tens, know the meaning and processes of measurement and iteration, and describe shapes using geometric terms. Try Varsity Tutors’ free Common Core 1st Grade Math app for Android-powered smartphones and tablets to help your student with these skills and more.
Try starting with a Common Core 1st Grade Math diagnostic test. Now that you have an idea of where your student is in terms of his or her math skills, you can begin to review some of the Common Core 1st Grade Math number principles. A great way to review is using flashcards. There are many Common Core 1st Grade flashcards on the app. You may want to turn the results themselves into a mini-game as well—try separating the flashcards into sets, then subtracting the number of incorrectly answered cards from the number of correctly answered cards.
Assisting your 1st grader with Common Core Math standards is important. Reviewing the principal concepts is a great way to make sure that your student has a solid foundation to succeed in Common Core Math. No matter if it is addition or subtraction, number breakdowns and place values, measurement units and iterations, or geometric shapes you would like to review, our free Varsity Tutors Common Core 1st Grade Math app for Android-powered smartphones and tablets has you covered.
