Mathematics is about numbers, shapes and patterns. This includes measuring, discovering similarities and differences, problem solving and counting -- Kindergarteners L-O-V-E counting things!!
We believe that children who are "mathed with," learn math.
The Go Math program incorporates 21st Century Learning Skills, allows teachers to differentiate instruction and aligns to the Common Core State Standards.

The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics in Kindergarten are:
Counting and Cardinality

Know number names and the count sequence.

Count to tell the number of objects.

Compare numbers.

Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.

Number and Operations in Base Ten

Work with numbers 11-19 to gain foundations for place value.

Measure and Data

Describe and compare measurable attributes.

Classify objects and count the number of objects in each category.

Geometry

Identify and describe shapes.

Analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes.
