"It's time . . . for a Maaaaaaaaddddd Minute!!!"

Our Math curriculum consists of three components:

1. Go Math - Students were introduced to this series in Kindergarten.

It meets the new Common Core standards. Go Math encourages students to understand the math concepts rather than just learn the mechanics.

We are currently on Chapter 1 in Go Math

Chapter 1 is called "Number Sense and Place Value."

2. Simple Solutions - This workbook reviews math concepts that were learned in first grade. Students will be required to complete one lesson each night - Monday through Thursday. A Simple Solutions quiz will usually be given every Friday.

3. Mad Minutes - Each day second graders will practice their math facts by doing a

Mad Minute. We check these in class and then the students should do a Mad Minute each night for homework. Mad Minutes work on speed and accuracy.

Our goal for second grade is 100 addition facts in 5 minutes

and 100 subtraction facts in 6 minutes.
