2nd Grade Mathematics extends students’ understanding of number concepts and place value up to the number 1,200. The course starts with teaching students to read and write numbers in different forms. Students will compare numbers using symbols (<, >, =) and number lines. Students will also learn about even and odd numbers. The course teaches students addition and subtraction using multiple methods and spiraling. Methods include composing and decomposing numbers with expanded and standard forms, number lines, hundreds charts, place value models, and algorithms. These methods are also applied in solving one- and two-step word problems. Students learn to use mental math to add tens and hundreds. The mental math also helps students better understand place value. Other concepts covered in this course include fractions, multiplication and division, geometric shapes, measurements, time, data from pictographs and bar graphs, money, and financial literacy. Throughout the course, students practice addition and subtraction math facts for numbers up to 20.
