Count animals to tell if Dotson made a Mystery Math Mistake when representing the number of animals using a 10-frame and writing the number to tell “how many.” Create number towers with “1 more” and “1 less.”

Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.

Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.

Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies. (Include groups with up to ten objects.)
