Grade Two - Math
In grade two, Math lessons will help the students to understand mathematical concepts of number recognition, addition, subtraction, shapes, measurement, time and money. Special significance will be given to providing grade appropriate mathematical and algebraic materials and problems from everyday life that the student will interpret and solve so as to sharpen their mathematical and algebraic skills.
Number and Operations: Students will learn counting and number patterns up to 100, skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, 10s, compare and order numbers, learn the names of numbers, understand the number line and word problems up to 1000, carry out addition and subtraction (two and three digits), place value, study algebra, recognize even and odd numbers and learn estimating and rounding.
They will also learn fractions, division, and multiplication of numbers.
Geometry and Measurement: Students will learn characters and properties of two dimensional shapes and three dimensional objects; identify, describe, compare, and sort three-dimensional objects (i.e., cubes, spheres, prisms, cones, cylinders and pyramids) according to the shape of the faces or the numbers of faces, edges, or vertices; point-out spatial relationships, transformation and symmetry.
Students will learn to use measurement techniques and tools: select and use appropriate measurement tools, identify and select appropriate units of measurement for length, volume (capacity), weight and time.
Mathematical Process: Students will learn to identify fractions, count money using real life scenarios, compare money and value, tell time, read schedules and enhance problem solving skills.
Data Analysis: Students will learn to collect data and organize it in charts, picture graphs and bar graphs. Read, interpret and make comparisons and predictions from data represented in charts, line plots, picture graphs and bar graphs; read and construct simple timelines to sequence events; describe and compare categories of data represented in a chart or graph, and make statements about the data as a whole.
