New Zealand – National Standards expand/collapse

  • 2 – Year 2
    • 2.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 2.GM.2 – Sort objects and shapes by different features and describe the features, using mathematical language

  • 3 – Year 3
    • 3.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 3.GM.2 – Sort objects and two- and three-dimensional shapes by their features, identifying categories within categories

  • 4 – Year 4

  • 5 – Year 5
    • 5.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 5.GM.2 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes, considering the presence and/or absence of features simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

  • 3 – Grade 3
    • 3.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 3.G.1 – Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.

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

        • 4.G.1 – Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
