Progressions of Math
Development Questions

1. Count (What number do your students count to?)

2. Quantify - Could you ask Are there 1, 2, or 3 items? (instead of asking


how many?)

3. Compare - Which has more?

4. Operate - How much more? Or How many more?


Progression Is a Cycle

This progression is applied over and over as you move through the
development of math concepts.

Where is your student now? How do you apply this progression?

Even if students can only count 123, work on quantifying those


numbers.
