Curriculum Guide

Synopsis of Curriculum

The Second Grade Mathematics curriculum is divided into five general areas: Numbers and Operations; Algebraic Concepts; Measurement, Data and Probability; Geometry; and Problem Solving.  Second grade students will learn to use place value concepts to use tens and ones to compare three digit numbers.  The students will learn to read, write and skip count to 1000, and will understand the properties of operations to add and subtract within 1000.  Second grade students will learn to represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction within 100, and use mental strategies to add and subtract within 20.  The students will also learn to use equal groups to build the foundations of multiplication.  Second grade students will learn to analyze and draw two and three dimensional shapes with specified attributes and to use fractions to partition shapes into halves, quarters and thirds.  The students will learn to use appropriate tools to measure and estimate lengths; to apply addition and subtraction properties to problems involving length; to tell and write time to the nearest five minutes using analog and digital clocks; to solve problems and make change using coins and bills with the appropriate symbols; and, to represent and interpret data using line plots, bar graphs and picture graphs.
