• Second Grade mathematics is about (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. Major emphasis in Second Grade is placed on:


    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.
