    The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) in a report identified 3 critical concepts that should be focal points in the second grade curriculum.  The focal points included:

    • Number and Operations - developing an understanding of the base 10 numeration system and place value concepts
    • Number and Operations and Algebra - developing quick recall of addition facts and related subtraction facts and fluency with multi-digit addition and subtraction
    • Measurement - developing an understanding of linear measurement and facility in measuring lengths.
