Mathematics - Second Grade 2nd six weeks

Mathematics

The Terra Nova Complete Battery for Mathematics is "designed to help students show what they know and can do. Many questions call for critical thinking, reasoning, and problem solving. Questions allow students to use different strategies and to take individual paths to a solution. Real-world topics engage students' interest, and the extensive use of graphics reduces the need for explanatory text and provides a supportive context. Themes group items into meaningful configurations, and items are generally sequenced to promote initial success so that students will continue with confidence to more challenging questions.

The [Terra Nova] tests taps broad mathematical power, yet retains the specifics from the traditional curriculum. The first section of the test includes computation, computation in context, and estimation items, and is administered without calculators. The second section covers a broad range of core skills and may be administered with calculators. Some questions require the use of rulers, which are supplied with the testing materials." The Terra Nova Plus for Mathematics Computation "carefully targets measurement of computation skills to the appropriate grade level. Because each item is unique to a specific level, there is no overlap or repetitive testing. The problems in the test challenge students in different ways. Among fractions, for example, items deal with both like and unlike denominators, with horizontal and vertical formats, and with mixed fractions. Items that promote the use of mental math and that test estimation skills are also included. All these items encourage students to apply techniques thoughtfully rather than simply utilizing memorization or using stock formulas. The Terra Nova Mathematics Computation test answers the questions that many teachers ask: 'Have my students mastered all the fundamentals of computation?' and 'Do they apply those computation techniques that they have learned?'" The Tennessee Mathematics Framework for Kindergarten through Grade 8 was adopted by the State Board of Education on October 11, 1996. The framework includes four Process Standards:
    * Problem Solving
    * Communication
    * Reasoning
    * Connections
The four Process Standards are intended to be incorporated into five Content Standards:
    * Number Sense and Number Theory
    * Estimation, Measurement, and Computation
    * Patterns, Functions, and Algebraic Thinking
    * Statistics and Probability
    * Spatial Sense and Geometric Concepts
