Applying the Standards: Math for second-grade offers 64 pages of targeted math practice. It is aligned with current state standards and includes a problem-solving rubric, standards alignment chart, and standard-specific pages of math problems and performance tasks. Second-graders will be able to prove deep understanding of topics that range from addition and subtraction, place value, measurement, and time, to geometry. The Applying the Standards: Math series emphasizes higher-level thinking by requiring students to complete performance tasks to prove understanding of each standard. Grade-level math skills are covered, and a culminating reflection question for each performance task engages students in the standards of mathematical practice. Current state standards and depth of understanding are emphasized throughout the series.
