2nd Grade Math Educational Games
Second grade math help can be provided using second grade math
lesson plans with learning games. Second grade math curriculum
should rely on many learning tools  Second grade math learning
activities, worksheets, reinforcement exercises, and assessments.
The major math strands for Second grade curriculum are number
sense and operations, algebra, geometry and spatial sense, measurement,
and data analysis and probability. While these math strands might
surprise you, they are all critical lessons for a Second grade
math curriculum.
Second grade math lessons, worksheets, and activities teach Second grade math curriculum covering all the math strands. In basic arithmetic, the Second grade students learn numbers to 100. In kindergarten math they learned number facts to 10, but were trained to count to 100. In advancing to first grade math they will add and subtract numbers to 100. First grade math will include learning more about geometrical figures and objects, measurement of length, weight, capacity, time, and temperature, use of money, graphs and charts used for data analysis and prediction, and algebraic patterns.

Second Grade Math Curriculum and Standards  Lessons, Activities, Worksheets  Number Sense and Operations
Second grade math includes use of ordinal numbers to 100th. The children will compare and order whole numbers to 1000. They will group objects into hundreds, tens and ones, relating the groupings to a written numeral.
Second grade math includes fractions. Students should understand halves, thirds, quarters, and eighths as parts of a set. They should know that a complete set makes one whole. The children will be skipcounting by 2s, 3s, 5s, 10s, 25s, 50s and 100s. They should learn to count forward or backward by 1s or 10s starting with any number less than 1000. They should also understand the difference between odd and even numbers.
Coins are used in teaching second grade math. The children will count mixed groups of coins including pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and halfdollars. They'll be taught to recognize equivalent forms of money values, and should count coins up to one dollar or more during the course of the year.
During second grade, math students learn place values to 1000. They should be able to use place value patterns using 0 as a place holder (10, 100, etc.) and should understand that ten 10s equal 100. In numbers up to 1000, the children should know the place value of any designated digit.
By the end of the year second grade math students should recall addition and subtraction facts from memory. They should understand the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction, and be able to predict the relative size of solutions for both addition and subtraction  in other words they should understand that adding two whole numbers will result in a number larger than either of the two original numbers. Students should be able to add or subtract twodigit numbers with or without regrouping.
Second Grade Math Curriculum and Standards  Lessons, Activities, Worksheets  Measurement
During second grade, math students should learn more about measurement and be able to communicate measurement concepts. They should understand both customary and metric systems of measurement and know when to use various units.
Second grade math students learn which units are most appropriate  such as inches or centimeters to measure something less than a foot long, or miles and kilometers to measure great distances. Besides measuring length, the children will learn to measure weight and capacity of objects. They will learn what tools are available for measuring linear dimensions, weight, capacity, and temperature.
Second grade math students learn to use clocks and calendars to measure time. They are taught the concepts of minutes, halfhours, hours, days, weeks, months, and years. The children should demonstrate an ability to use both digital and analog clocks to measure time including quarterhours and five minute intervals. Using both Fahrenheit and Celsius thermometers, second grade math students learn to demonstrate an understanding of temperatures.
