Grade 2 Overview

View unit yearlong overview here

The unit design was created in line with the areas of focus for second grade mathematics as identified by the Common Core State Standards. Each unit is comprised of standards that are considered major content along with supporting content.

Unit 1 begins with two benchmarked standards “Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one and two-step word problems” [2.OA.1] -- repeated in unit 4 – and “skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s with” [1.NBT.2] repeated units 2 and 3.  In units 2 and 3, students extend their understanding of place value and properties of operations with addition and subtraction.  A foundation for multiplication begins in unit 3 with arrays and measurements.   Word problems are continued in unit 4 with various measurements (including time and money).  Geometric shapes are used in unit 5 to teach part-whole and sharing concepts.
