In the second grade edition of the Go Math program, each student text is broken into eleven separate chapters. The 11 chapters cover a wide array of subjects, from basic number concepts to geometry. The amount of topics covered by each teacher varies.
The 11 chapters include the following: Number Concepts, Numbers to 1,000, Basic Facts and Relationships, 2 Digit Addition, 2 Digit Subtraction, 3 Digit Addition and Subtraction, Money and Time, Length in Customary Units, Length in Metric Units, Data and Geometry. Each student is given a copy of the text and a practice workbook. Online tools and manipulatives are also made available to each student if they are having difficulty with a lesson.
Early chapters of the text are built in to act as a reminder of past lessons each student should have become familiar with and mastered in the first grade. Each chapter is broken down into anywhere between eight and 11 sub-sections. Each sub-section introduces a new concept in direct relation to that chapter's main idea. The goal of the Go Math program is to provide each student with the tools necessary to succeed and to become better prepared for their ascent into the third grade.
