Progression of Content in Elementary Math

State specialists were asked to report on the grade at which six elementary math topics were first assessed. The results show that, across the states reporting on this topic, there was high consistency on the grade when three of the topics were assessed: understanding fractions, multiplication/division with word problems, and dividing fractions. The states differed slightly on grades for assessing multiplication of fractions (grade 4 to grade 6) and proportional relationships (mostly grade 7).
