What math skills should I teach my second grade class?
The content you teach second graders will depend on your curriculum. Generally, students in second grade will build skills in addition and subtraction facts, place value, geometry and measurement. Some may advance to more complex topics, like fractions, multiplication and building their mental math skills.
If you are following the Common Core curriculum, you will want to cover the following math skills:
Operations and Algebraic Thinking
- Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems with unknowns in all positions.
- Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies, knowing all sums of two one-digit numbers by the end of Grade 2.
- Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members and express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
Number and Operations in Base Ten
- Understand the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones.
- Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s.
- Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
- Compare two three-digit numbers using >, =, and < symbols.
- Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
- Add up to four two-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
- Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
- Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100-900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100-90
Measurement and Data
- Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths given in the same units.
- Represent whole numbers as lengths on a number line and solve addition and subtraction problems within 100 on a number line.
- Tell and write time to the nearest five minutes using analog and digital clocks.
- Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using appropriate symbols.
- Generate measurement data by measuring lengths and represent the measurements on a line plot.
- Create picture graphs and bar graphs to represent data with up to four categories, and solve math problems using the information presented in a bar graph.
- Recognize and draw shapes with specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
- Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares. Describe the shares using words like halves, thirds, and fourths. Recognize that equal shares do not need to have the same shape.
You will also want to recap skills taught in 1st Grade, such as:
- Counting to 20
- Reading clocks to the nearest hour
- Identifying and classifying basic shapes
- Basic addition and subtraction facts, including 2-digit numbers
