Math Standards Covered in 3rd and 4th Quarter:

2.NBT.7 Add and subtract within 1,000, relating the strategy to a written method, using:

• Concrete models or drawings

• Strategies based on place value

• Properties of operations

• Relationship between addition and subtraction

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

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

2.MD.5 Use addition and subtraction, within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, using equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

2.MD.6 Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points and represent whole-number sums and differences, within 100, on a number line diagram.

2.G.1 Recognize and draw triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, and hexagons, having specified attributes; recognize and describe attributes of rectangular prisms and cubes.

2.G.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, fourths, fourth of, quarter of.

• Describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths.

• Explain that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.

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

2.OA.3 Determine whether a group of objects, within 20, has an odd or even number of members by:

● Pairing objects, then counting them by 2s.

● Determining whether objects can be placed into two equal groups.

● Writing an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends
