Introduction to Problem Solving
Complete Math Curriculum
Recommended for Students in Grade 2
Mapped To Common Core Standards
This math curriculum is designed in a way that we wish we had when we were kids. It teaches kids how to think critically and understand the concepts behind the math calculations they’re performing. Engaging illustrations keep kids coming back for more, even as they grapple with some of the most rigorous math problems available anywhere.
Grade 1 Concept Review
We will review key grade 1 concepts to bring all students to the same level using engaging puzzles and assignments. The goal of these sessions will be to build good problem-solving habits.
Digits, ones, tens, hundreds, breaking and regrouping, adding and subtracting 1, 10, or 100.
The number line, distance, consecutive numbers, using < and >, ordering numbers.
Sums, place value strategies, counting up, adding and taking away, doubles, making 10's and 100's, friendly sums.
Place value strategies, using addition, finding a difference, counting up, subtracting then adding, subtracting all at once, and subtracting in parts.
Evaluating expressions, using parentheses, working with symbols, simplifying, and solving equations.
