  • This series provides the tools necessary to capture the wonder and fun of mathematics while helping teachers and parents instruct the Common Core Mathematics Standards in a manageable way. Each book focuses and connects to the Standards for Mathematical Content and Standards for Mathematical Practice, including: making sense of problems and persevere in solving them, modeling with mathematics, and using appropriate tools strategically. Featuring: a chart to monitor progress toward learning goal success; pre & post assessments for every Common Cores Standard domain; a problem set for every Common Core Standard; authentic challenge projects with real-world and technology integration; a detailed answer key.

    Dear Parent
    Progress-Monitoring Chart
    Table of Contents
    Domain 1: Operations & Algebraic Thinking
    Pre/Post Assessment
    Domain 1: Represent and solve problems using addition and subtraction
    2.oa.a.1. Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions.
    Add and subtract within 20.
    2.oa.b.2. Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
    Work with equal groups of objects to gain foundations for multiplication.

    2.oa.c.3. Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, write an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.

    2.oa.c.4. Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.

    Domain 2: Number & Operations in Base 10
    Pre/Post Assessment
    Understand place value
    1.NBT.A.1. Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
    Understand place value

    2.nbt.a.1. Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds,tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones. Understand the following as special cases: 100 can be thought of as a bundle of ten tens — called a “hundred.”The numbers 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine hundreds (and 0 tens and 0 ones).

    2.nbt.a.2. Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s. 2.nbt.a.3. Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.

    2.nbt.a.4. Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
    Use place value understanding and properties of operations to
    add and subtract. 2.nbt.b.5. Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.

    2.nbt.b.6. Add up to four two-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.

    2.nbt.b.7. Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method. Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.

    2.nbt.b.8. Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100–900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100–900.

    2.nbt.b.9. Explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations.

    Domain 3: Measurement & Data
    Pre/Post Assessment
    Measure and estimate lengths in standard units

    2.mD.a.1. Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.

    2.mD.a.2. Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.

    2.mD.a.3. Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.

    2.mD.a.4. Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.

    Relate addition and subtraction to length

    2.mD.b.5. Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

    2.mD.b.6. Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2, . . . , and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number line diagram.

    Work with time and money

    2.mD.c.7. Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.

    2.mD.c.8. Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately. Example: If you have 2 dimes and 3 pennies, how many cents do you have?

    Represent and interpret data

    2.mD.D.9. Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.

    2.mD.D.10. Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single- unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.

    Domain 4: Geometry
    Pre/Post Assessment
    Reason with shapes and their attributes

    2.g.a.1. Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.
    Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

    2.g.a.2. Partition a rectangle into rows and columns of same-size squares and count to find the total number of them.

    2.g.a.3. Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
