For Second Grade students, the standards for Mathematical Practice focus on four crucial areas:
With the help and support of eSpark Learning’s standards-aligned curriculum, second-graders will continue to grow their mathematical knowledge developed in the Pre-K, Kindergarten, and First Grade. They’ll also solve word problems within 100, use mental strategies to fluently add and subtract within 20, and learn about odd and even numbers.
In the second standard, Number and Operations in Base Ten, students will expand their knowledge of place value and learn the concept that numbers like 100 and 200 are bundles of tens. Second-graders will also fine-tune their counting skills by learning to read and write numbers up to 1,000 and skip count by 5’s.
Next, students will expand their knowledge of measurement, data, and telling time. They’ll also learn brand-new concepts like coin values, solving word problems involving money, and drawing bar graphs to represent and categorize data sets.
In the final domain, students will continue naming and drawing new shapes like quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes. Second-graders will also learn how to divide rectangles into equal-sized shapes as well as halves, thirds, and fourths.
eSpark Learning supports supports the entire classroom during this foundational year of learning — helping students learn 1.5 times faster than their peers and giving teachers the confidence to create a standards-aligned curriculum that sets everyone up for success in Second Grade the years ahead.
