Mathematics concepts assessed in Second Grade

Mathematics concepts assessed in Second Grade include:

Number and Operations

Use place value to describe whole numbers between 10 and 1000 in terms of hundreds, tens and ones. Know that 100 is 10 tens, and 1000 is 10 hundreds. Read, write and represent whole numbers up to 1000. Demonstrate fluency with basic addition facts and related subtraction facts. Solve real-world and mathematical addition and subtraction problems involving whole numbers with up to 2 digits.


Recognize, create, describe, and use patterns and rules to solve real-world and mathematical problems. For example: Skip count by 5s beginning at 3 to create the pattern 3, 8, 13, 18, ... . Another example: Collecting 7 empty milk cartons each day for 5 days will generate the pattern 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, resulting in a total of 35 milk cartons. Use number sentences involving addition, subtraction, and unknowns to represent given problem situations. For example: How many more players are needed if a soccer team requires 11 players and so far only 6 players have arrived? This situation can be represented by the number sentence 11 – 6 = p or by the number sentence 6 + p = 11.

Geometry and Measurement

Identify and name basic two- and three-dimensional shapes, such as squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, trapezoids, hexagons, cubes, rectangular prisms, cones, cylinders and spheres. Tell time to the quarter-hour and distinguish between a.m. and p.m. Identify pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Find the value of a group of coins and determine combinations of coins that equal a given amount.
