• Everyday Math

    In Everyday Mathematics you can expect to see…

    …a problem-solving approach based on everyday situations

    …an instructional approach that revisits concepts regularly

    …frequent practice of basic skills, often through games

    …lessons based on activities and discussion, not a textbook

    …mathematical content that goes beyond basic arithmetic

    Content Emphasized in Grade 2 Mathematics

    In Everyday Mathematics, children develop a broad background by learning concepts and skills in all these six content strands.  The second-grade program emphasizes the following content.

    ·        Number and Numeration
