2nd Grade   Grade Level Goals

Everyday Mathematics third-edition Grade Level Goals have been revised to align with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M), which were widely adopted in 2010. Both versions of the curriculum's goals are available below. For more information on standards, please see Meeting Standards with Everyday Mathematics.

Place value and notation Read, write, and model with manipulatives whole numbers up to 10,000; identify places in such numbers and the values of the digits in those places; read and write money amounts in dollars-and-cents notation.
Meanings and uses of fractions Use manipulatives and drawings to model fractions as equal parts of a region or a collection; describe the models and name the fractions.
Number theory Recognize numbers as odd or even.
Understand Equivalent Names for Numbers Equivalent names for whole numbers Use tally marks, arrays, and numerical expressions involving addition and subtraction to give equivalent names for whole numbers.
Equivalent names for fractions, decimals, and percents Use manipulatives and drawings to model equivalent names for 1/2.
Understand Common Numerical Relations Comparing and ordering numbers Compare and order whole numbers up to 10,000; use area models to compare fractions.
Operations and Computation
Program Goal Content Thread Grade-Level Goal
Compute Accurately Addition and subtraction facts Demonstrate automaticity with all addition facts through 10 + 10 and fluency with the related subtraction facts.
