ST Math Homeschool Math Topics

Your child has a unique learning path, and we understand it may vary from traditional grade-level designations. Although ST Math levels are organized by grade, you can choose the appropriate level for your child's instruction. Here are the main topics covered.

  • Count to 100 (by ones and by tens)
  • Compare whole numbers using objects and numbers 1-10 (greater than, less than, equal to)
  • Write numbers 0-20 and represent them with objects
  • Addition and subtraction within 10 (fluently within 5)
  • Solve word problems using objects, numbers or drawings
  • Work with numbers 11-19 (beginning place values)
  • Describe shapes in 2D and 3D (length, weight, etc.) and position (above, below, etc.)
  • Classify objects and sort
Grade 1
  • Addition and subtraction within 100 (fluently within 10), including word problems and strategies for solving word problems
  • Compare two-digit numbers to 100
  • Add and subtract 10 or multiples of 10
  • Place value to 100; a bundle of ten ones is called a ten
  • Compare and order objects based on length
  • Tell and write time
  • Compose geometric shapes; build and draw with attributes
Grade 2
  • Addition and subtraction within 100 including word problems with unknowns; also involving money and length
  • Fluently add and subtract within 20; know from memory
  • Odds and evens; skip counting by 5, 10, 100
  • Place value to 1,000; read and write numbers using base 10 numerals, number names and expanded form
  • Add and subtract within 1,000 using place value; compose or decompose tens and hundreds
  • Compare three-digit numbers
  • Time to the nearest five-minutes, a.m. and p.m.
  • Partition circles and rectangles into equal shares and describe the shares
Grade 3
  • Multiply and divide within 100; know from memory
  • Solve word problems, including unknowns and use of properties of operations
  • Round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100
  • Add and subtract within 1,000 using place value.
  • Represent fractions on a number line
  • Compare fractions using visual models
  • Solve addition and subtraction problems involving intervals of time, liquid volumes, and masses of objects
  • Relate area to addition and multiplication; recognize perimeter as an attribute of plane figures
Grade 4
  • Find all factor pairs and determine if prime or composite, from 1 to 100
  • Solve word problems involving multiplicative comparisons, unknowns, remainders and rounding
  • Multiply with multi-digit numbers
  • Round whole numbers to any place and compare numbers using symbols
  • Divide to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends
  • Use visual fraction models to explain fraction equivalence and compare fractions (different numerators and denominators)
  • Add, subtract and multiply (beginning) fractions
  • Analyzing and classifying geometric figures based on properties, such as parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures and symmetry
Grade 5
  • Write and interpret expressions that use parentheses and brackets
  • Graph points on a coordinate plane (1st quadrant only)
  • Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (fluently)
  • Multiply and divide fractions
  • Read, write and compare decimals to thousandths; round decimals to any place
  • Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers
  • Divide with whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors
  • Solve problems involving volume; relate volume to multiplication and addition
Grade 6
  • Connect ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division
  • Use tables to compare ratios; find percents; convert measurements
  • Divide with whole numbers and fractions
  • Use the distributive property; find greatest common factor and least common multiple
  • Extend the number line to include negative numbers; order rational numbers
  • Write and evaluate expressions involving whole number exponents and with unknowns in which letters stand for numbers
  • Solve one-variable equations and inequalities
  • Solve problems involving area, surface area and volume
Grade 7
  • Analyze proportional relationships; solve real-world and mathematical problems
  • Add, subtract, multiply and divide rational numbers
  • Generate equivalent expressions; solve problems using numerical and algebraic expressions
  • Draw and construct geometric figures
  • Solve problems involving angle measure, area, surface area and volume
Grade 8
  • Know that there are numbers that are not rational, called irrational
  • Generate expressions and solve equations involving radicals, integer exponents, square root and cube root
  • Graph proportional relationships and understand the connections with lines and linear equations (including slope)
  • Analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations
  • Model relationships between quantities; evaluate and compare functions
  • Use properties of rotation, reflections and translations
  • Explain the Pythagorean Theorem (involving right triangles, distance between two points in coordinate system)
