United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

  • 2 – Grade 2
    • 2.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 2.G.1 – Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. (Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.) Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

  • 4 – Grade 4
    • 4.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 4.G.2 – Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.

  • 5 – Grade 5
    • 5.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 5.G.3 – Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
