Next week Grade 2 students will begin a new math unit: Addition & Subtraction of length units.
From Eureka: “In this unit, students engage in activities designed to deepen their conceptual understanding of measurement and to relate addition and subtraction to length. Their work in Module 2 is exclusively with metric units in order to support place value concepts.”
Focus of G3 math standards for this unit:
-Use Measurement and Data to help me understand math.
-Use different tools to measure objects.
-Compare the length of an object using two different units of measurement.
-Estimate the lengths of objects.
-Compare the length of two different objects.
-Use addition and subtraction to solve measurement problems.
-Make and use a number line.
