Have a look at the latest elaborated CBSE class 1 maths syllabus given below:

  2. Solids Around Us
    • Collects objects from the surroundings having different sizes and shapes like pebbles, boxes, balls, cones, pipes, etc.
    • Sorts, Classifies and describes the objects on the basis of shapes, and other observable properties.
    • Observes and describes the way shapes affect movements like rolling and sliding.
    • Sorts 2 - D shapes such as flat objects made of card etc.

Numbers (46 hrs.)

  1. Developing a sense of Numberness, Counting and Operations of Numbers 1- 9 and Zero.
    • Observes object and makes collections of objects.

    • Counts the number of objects in a collection.
    • Recognises and speaks numbers from 1 to 9.
    • Uses numbers from 1 to 9 in counting and comparison. (Real objects and repeated events like clapping to be used for counting).

    • Adds and subtracts using real objects and pictures.
    • Adds and subtracts the numbers using symbols ‘+’ and ‘-’.

  2. Numbers from (10 - 20)
    • Forms Number sequence from 10 to 20.
    • Counts objects using these numbers.
    • Groups objects into a group of 10s and single objects.

  3. Compares numbers up to 20.
  4. Numbers from 21 – 99
    • Writes numerals for Twenty-one to Ninety-nine. Groups objects into tens and ones.
    • Draws representation for groups of ten and ones.
    • Groups a number orally into tens and ones.
  5. Mental Arithmetic Adds two single digit numbers mentally.

      • Seriates objects by comparing their length.
      • Measures short lengths in terms of non-uniform units (in the context of games e.g. ‘Gilli Danda’ and ‘marble games’).
      • Estimates distance and length, and verifies using non- uniform units (e.g. hand span etc.).
    2. Weight Compares between heavy and light objects
