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 baseten 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 understanding 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.
Geometry
 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.
