Second graders have certain mathematical learning expectations that need to be fulfilled, and these are carefully listed on our website, along with accompanying related activities. The links on the left will lead you to the lists of math expectations in the areas of Number Sense, Measurement, Geometry, Algebraic Thinking, and Data Analysis. The activity accompanying each expectation is designed to aid you in helping your second grader accomplish the expectations for mathematical learning at this time.
By second grade, students tend to be more confident about their mathematical abilities and are focused more on problem solving. Their knowledge in math is now more applied to real-life situations such as counting money and time. Their skills in adding and subtracting two digit numbers will also be more developed at this stage. By this time, students begin to learn how to reason and concentrate and to use mathematical strategies in problem solving.
