Students extend their knowledge of addition and subtraction within 20 to fluently add and subtract within 20 using various strategies. This work is put into practice as students solve familiar word problem types using tape diagrams and equations to represent what is happening mathematically.
Math
Unit 1
2nd Grade
This introductory unit helps set students up for the major work of fluently adding and subtracting within 20 which is the endofyear goal. By reviewing, building, and refining strategies for fluently adding and subtracting mentally, this will help students as they work flexibly with larger numbers in later units. Topic A reengages students with their fluency within 10 which was the endofyear goal of first grade and continues on their counting work extending from 120 to 200. Topic B allows students to use advanced strategies to add and subtract flexibly within 20. They use strategies such as make a ten to add, relate addition and subtraction to subtract by using known facts and making a ten strategies, subtracting by going down over ten, and converting to easier problems using known and doubles facts. In Topic C students reengage with story problems and use tape diagrams to represent the math of the mathematical situations while focusing on adding to and taking from, and putting together and taking apart situation types.
