Textbook & Materials: Math Mammoth Grade 2 complete

An old-fashioned alarm clock or other analog clock where you can turn the minute hand and the hour hand will turn as it is supposed to (for 2-A). 

A ruler that measures in inches (for 2-B).

A ruler that measures in centimeters (for 2-B).

A bathroom scales. It is best if you can have one that measures in pounds and in kilograms, or one with pounds and another with kilograms; however I realize most people wouldn’t normally buy two bathroom scales, so if you decide not to get both kinds, it means you will just need to skip some activities in the measuring chapter (for 2-B).

Base ten blocks to illustrate place value with hundreds (optional). The worktexts have pictures that are just like base ten blocks, and most children can understand the concepts from the visual representation, without a physical manipulative; however for some children, the actual blocks can be beneficial (for 2-B).

100-bead abacus (optional)
Please read more about the 100-bead abacus on the FAQ page.

Summary: The main areas of study in grade 2 curriculum are:

Understanding of the base-ten system within 1000. This includes place value with three-digit numbers, skip- counting in fives, tens, and multiples of hundreds, tens, and ones (within 1000). (chapters 6 and 8);

Develop fluency with addition and subtraction within 100, including solving word problems, regrouping in addition, and regrouping in subtraction (chapters 1, 3, 4, and 8);

Using standard units of measure (chapter 7);

Describing and analyzing shapes (chapter 5).

Additional topics we study are time/clock (chapter 2), money (chapter 9), introduction to multiplication (chapter 10), and bar graphs and picture graphs (in various chapters).
