    I didn't know the term myself so did some web surfing. From what I could see it seems to be a math focus on using logic to solve problems. There was quite a bit on graphing and other areas of math that I usually attribute to High School or College level math.

    Most of the sites I saw were dedicated to High School math which may be why the term is not as recognized. Some of the sites mentioned the need to have it from primary grades upwards so perhaps schools are moving more towards incorporating it into the curriculum at lower grades now.

    With grade 1 the only thing I can think of is that you would introduce very basic concepts within the context of problem solving and graphing.

    These links may help you in figuring this out.
