About This Course

Published 8/2015 English

Course Description

In 2010, forty-four states and the District of Columbia adopted the Common Core State Standards in Language Arts and Mathematics to establish consistent educational standards across the United States to ensure high school graduates are prepared for college and the work place. Unfortunately, the Common Core Standards are not very clearly written. This course is designed to help parents and teachers navigate and understand the 2nd Grade Common Core Mathematics Content Standards. The goal of this course it to provide you with a resources that you can go to when ever you find that one of the math standards is confusing.

The course includes 44 supplemental worksheets provided in .pdf form to help students practice and deepen their understanding of many of the content standards. Many parents are confused over state and national standards for mathematics and frustrated with the lack of resources from schools and districts to support their students learning at home and during school breaks. Other parents are embarrassed to express their own lack of understanding of mathematics and their inability to provide assistance to their own school aged children. In this course, the 2nd Grade Common Core Mathematics Standards are explained in detail, simplified and broken down with step-by-step instruction. This course will demystify and simplify the 2nd Grade Math Common Core Standards.

50 pages
Section 2: Numbers Base Ten - 2nd Grade Math Content Standards
  • 2.NBT.A.1 – Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g. 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 Tens, and 6 ones.

2.NBT.A.2 – Count within 1000; skip-cunt by 5's, 10's, and 100s.

  • 2.NBT.A.3 – Read and write numbers to 1,000 using base-ten numerals, number names and expanded form.
  • 2.NBT.A.4 – Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
  • 2.NBT.B.5 – Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
  • 2.NBT.B.6 – Add up to four two-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
  • 2.NBT.B.7 – Add and subtract within 1,000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method.Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.
  • 2.NBT.B.8 – Mentally add 10 or 1000 to a given number 100 – 900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100 – 900.
  • 2.NBT.B.9 – Explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations.
Section 3: Operations & Algebraic Thinking - 2nd Grade Math Content Standards
  • 2.OA.A.1 – Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one and two step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g. by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
  • 2.OA.B.2 – Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By the end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
  • 2.OA.C.3 – Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, e.g. by pairing objects or counting them by 2's.Write and equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
  • 2.OA.C.4 – Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
Section 4: Geometry - 2nd Grade Math Content Standards
Shapes - Geometry Standard 2.G.A.1
Partition Rectangles into Rows and Columns - Geometry Standard 2.G.A.2
Partition Circles and Rectangles into Equal Shares - Geometry Standard 2.G.A.3
Section 5: Measurement - 2nd Grade Math Content Standards
2.MD.A.1 – Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
2.MD.A.2 – Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.
  • 2.MD.A.3 – Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
  • 2.MD.A.4 – Measure to determine how much longer one object is that another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
  • 2.MD.B.5 – Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

2.MD.B.6 – Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0,1,2, …., and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number line diagram.

    • 2.MD.C.7 – Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.

This lecture covers 2nd Grade Common Core Content Measurement Standard 2.MD.C.8 The standard covers word problems about money.

  • 2.MD.C.8 – Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately. Example: If you have 2 dimes and 3 pennies, how many cents do you have?
  • 2.MD.D.9 – Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
  • 2.MD.D.10 – Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.
