STANDARDSMichigan Curriculum Framework: Content Standards and Benchmarks: Mathematics
Standard IV. Number Sense and Numeration
Number sense is to mathematics what vocabulary is to language. Students must learn to quantify and measure, concretely at first and increasingly more abstractly as they mature. They also must develop an understanding of numeration systems and the structure of such systems. They must learn to estimate mathematical quantities and to represent and communicate mathematical ideas in the language of mathematics.
Standard IV.1 Concepts and Properties of Numbers Students experience counting and measuring activities to develop intuitive sense about numbers, understand the need for and existence of different sets of numbers, and investigate properties of special numbers
