# Kindergarten Math Practice - Common Core Standards

We have developed mathematics practice tests that follow the kindergarten common core state standards. We are not afiliated with the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) or the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) which coordinate the CCSS initiative.
According to CCSS, in Kindergarten, students should focus on representing, relating and operating on whole numbers, and describing shapes and space.

Kindergarten Counting and Cardinality Practice
K.CC: According to the Common Core State Standards, kindergarten students are expected to know number names, to count sequences, to count to tell the number of objects and to compare numbers.

Kindergarten Operations and Algebraic Thinking
K.OA: Students need to understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.

Kindergarten Number and Operations in Base Ten
K.NTB: Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 to gain foundations for place value.

Kindergarten Measurement and Data Practice
K.MD: The K.MD CCS standards require kindergarten students to describe and to compare measurable attributes, to classify objects and to count the number of objects in each category.

Kindergarten Common Core Geometry Practice
K.G: Kindergarten students are expected to be able to identify and describe shapes as squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones and spheres. They also have to learn to analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes according to the common core K.G standards.
