Second Grade
In second grade, math instructional time focuses on: 1) understanding number relationships and place value of numbers to 1000; 2) knowing from memory all sums within 20; 3) adding and subtracting numbers within 100 using various strategies; 4) counting and representing money using coins and bills; 5) telling time to the 5 minute interval; 6) measuring length to the nearest unit; 7) completing and interpeting basic graphs; 8) identifiying and describing twodimensional shapes; and 9) identifying fractional parts of shapes. Grade 2 math instruction develops strong number concepts without introducing the traditional methods or "short cuts" of addition and subtraction. With this deeper knowledge of how numbers work, students are more able to make connections in later grades with more complex problems and topics, such as algebra. The math curriculum is aligned with the NY State Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics. Daily instruction is based on TERC Investigations in Number, Data, and Space program.
