They’re growing fast, and so are their math skills! DoodleMath has everything students need to succeed in 2nd grade math, from guides on place value and measurement units to exercises that will help your child grow their understanding of telling time and using money. Explore all DoodleMath has to offer and watch them master math for 2nd grade.
From measuring lengths using standard units to understanding properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction, 2nd graders have much to learn. Select a skill below and help your student impress their classmates and teachers with their mathematical know-how!
Recognize numbers as odd or even.
Add numbers within 20 using mental strategies.
Subtract within 20 — in your head and on paper!
Draw and recognize shapes using angles, number of faces, and more.
Learn and use standard units to determine the length of objects.
Use place value to add multiple two-digit numbers together at once.
Looking for a different grade?
By 2nd grade, students have developed skills like counting, recognizing shapes, and adding up to the sum of 10. Now, they will build on those skills, learning to count up to 1,000, tell time to the nearest five minutes, and give the correct change when counting out money.
Let’s take a closer look at the skills your child will explore in 2nd grade math.
Remember that all students learn at their own pace. If your student struggles with concepts they’re learning in class, you should always talk to their teacher. You can also use DoodleMath for fun, stress-free practice. Research shows that playing math games helps students learn and retain information!
As always, this largely depends on your state’s standards for 2nd grade math curriculum and the teacher, but in general, 2nd grade students should be learning how to: count to 1,000, use angles and the number of sides to determine a shape, multiply and divide simple numbers, add several two-digit numbers at one time, and measure the length of objects using standard units such as centimeters, inches, etc.
There are plenty of options out there! We recommend exploring some of our math games and skill guides to help students have fun with and understand the concepts they’re learning in school. Try to chunk homework assignments and practice sessions. It’s much easier to keep students’ attention in short bursts rather than in long study sessions.
If your student doesn’t understand some of the concepts discussed in class, you may want to talk to the teacher about their performance in class. The teacher may suggest before- or after-school tutoring sessions or they may encourage you to seek out a professional tutor.
Other signs include declining performance, especially when they move from one skill to another, or increased frustration with certain skills or concepts. Asking the teacher for extra help or hiring a math tutor — maybe even a skilled high school student — is a great way to help build your student’s confidence.
