The objective of teaching Mathematics is to develop the skills of problem-solving and logical reasoning within learners. At Grade 2, we attempt to level up the basic numerical concepts taught in grade 1 through comparatively harder lessons and activities that are equally interesting and do-able by the learners.
- The learner understands comparatively complex arithmetic concepts compared to Grade 1.
- The learner expands their knowledge of shapes and patterns and identify various 3-D figures.
- The learner demonstrates a number of concepts based on lessons taught (such as organizing, classifying and grouping of objects).
- The learner describes patterns more discriminately.
- The learner develops the basic skill for interpretation of simple data.
- The learner finds similarities and differences between patterns with more precision as compared to before.
- The learner recognizes and differentiate between 2-D and 3-D shapes.
- The learner develops the skill of using the learned numerical concepts in day-to-day life.
- The learner replicates shapes and patterns with details.
- The learner indulges in exploring every concept taught.
- The learner feels motivated to learn further.
- The learner begins to develop the practice of working in a team to find a solution.
Concept - The learner is able to:
- represent and count numbers up to 100;
- compose and decompose two-digit numbers.
Confidence - The learner is able to:
- organize objects into categories based on two attributes simultaneously (eg- to sort objects to their size and color);
- grasp various attributes of a particular basic pattern.
Clarity - The learner is able to:
- collect and organize primary data;
- read simple bar graphs and pictographs based on primary information.
Application - The learner is able to:
- discriminate physical attributes of the two ( eg- a square has two sides but a cube has 6 sides);
- describe relationships between quantities through addition or subtraction of whole numbers (e.g.- if A has 5 apples and B has 7 apples then it can be said that B has two apples more than A).
Innovation - The learner is able to:
- reconstructs simple figures with respect to their attributes such as size, color, location;
- think of further higher levels of addition and subtraction such as might attempt to perform addition and subtraction on two-digit numbers.
Compassion - The learner is able to:
- appreciate one’s efforts;
- be considerate of others.
