• Second grade math instruction is based upon the Common Core State Standards in mathematics.  In grade 2, instruction will focus on four critical areas: 1.  extending understanding of base-ten notation;  2. building fluency with addition and subtraction; 3.  using standard units of measure; and 4. describing and analyzing shapes.

    Grade 2  Overview:

    Operations and Algebraic Thinking
    Represent and solve problems involving  addition and subtraction.
    Add and subtract within 20.
    *Work with equal groups of objects to gain foundations for multiplication.

    Number and Operations in Base Ten
    *Understand place value.
    *Use place value and properties of operations to add and subtract.

    Measurement and Data
    *Measure and estimate lengths in standard units.
    *Relate addition and subtraction to length.
    *Work with time and money.
    *Represent and interpret data.

    *Reason with shapes and their attributes

    Mathematical Practices
    *Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
    *Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 
    *Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
    *Model with Mathematics.
    *Use appropriate tools strategically.
    *Attend to precision.
    *Look for and make use of structure.
    *Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
