Grade 2 – Developing Proficiency with Operations

  • Add and subtract whole numbers to 100
  • Add and subtract money amounts to 100¢
  • Recognize the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and apply this understanding in doing calculations
  • Represent multiplication as the combining of equal groups, that is, as repeated addition (e.g., use counters to show that 3 groups of 2 is equal to 2 + 2 + 2 and to 3 × 2)
  • Represent division as the sharing of a quantity equally (e.g., “I can share 12 carrot sticks equally among 4 friends by giving each person 3 carrot sticks.”)
