In Grade 2 Mathematics, our students explore math in their surroundings. They will discover larger numbers, mathematic patterns, and addition and subtraction problems that occur at home, while travelling, at the amusement park, and out on the farm. Your students will find out how math is everywhere they look by delving deeper into collecting data, 2D shapes, measuring length, telling time, and understanding money. They will also enhance their coding knowledge to start controlling the movement of two objects at the same time. This course is designed to be 200-300 instructional hours.

#### Course Outline

Counting

In the Counting unit, students show, compare, and order numbers up to 200. Students count by 20s, 25s, and 50s up to 200. Students also read and write numbers up to 200.

Patterns and Equality

In the Patterns and Equality unit, students learn about patterns in addition and subtraction. They learn how to show and create various patterns and explore the concept of equality.

In the Addition and Subtraction unit, students learn about composing and decomposing numbers and rounding numbers to the nearest ten. Students also solve addition and subtraction problems using mental strategies, math tools, and vertical equations.

Data

In the Data unit, students collect, organize, and read data, create graphs, and ask and answer questions about data. Students also explore and describe probability with experiments.

Fractions, Multiplication, and Division

In the Fractions, Multiplication, and Division unit, students investigate fractions, multiplication and division. Students analyse the relationship between a whole and the size of its parts, compare fractions, and make a whole. Students also develop an understanding of multiplication and division with equal groups.

Shapes

In the Shapes unit, students identify, describe, sort, and build two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. Students also describe locations and learn how to draw a map.

Coding

In the Coding unit, students build on their knowledge by creating code using sequential and concurrent events. They practice reading code and correcting mistakes that they find.

Money

In the Money unit, students count money and represent it in different ways. Students compare amounts of money to determine which has more value.

Measurement

In the Measurement unit, students measure height, length, and width using centimetres and metres. Students also tell and measure time.

Socio-Emotional Learning

Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to build their social-emotional learning skills specifically focusing on critical thinking skills, including creative and flexible ways of solving various problems.

#### Required Resources

This course is entirely online and does not require nor rely on any textbook. Students will require the following resources:

• A scanner, smartphone camera, or similar device to digitize handwritten or hand-drawn work
• A device to record audio
• A printer
• A physical binder, folder, or notebook for offline activities
• Various household items to complete offline activities
• Blue and red markers
• Paper towel roll or rolled up piece of construction paper
• Scissors and glue
• Bristol board or construction paper

The following math tools and resources are optional:

• Ten frames
• Counting rods and unit cubes
• Tangrams (pattern/shape blocks)

#### Teaching and Learning Strategies

Through a balance of problem-solving and direct instruction, students develop a strong foundation of mathematical processes, knowledge, and skills to apply in real-world contexts. The course engages multiple learning styles by combining technology and offline activities that provide opportunities to develop an understanding of skills and concepts in interactive and concrete ways. The lessons feature a variety of intriguing storylines, videos, graphics, and interactive games to reinforce students’ learning. The activities also build a foundation of mathematical models and strategies that students will use throughout their elementary grades.

The course relies on the assistance of a learning coach who supports young students as they move through the content. The learning coach will be involved in facilitating technical aspects of the course and in participating in discussion-based activities to assist students in developing communication skills.
