Common Core State Standards require children leaving 2nd grade to be able to read and understand simple word problems and to use multiple strategies to solve one- and two-step problems. Summer Solutions Grade 2 Problem Solving is an excellent mathematics resource for students entering 3rd grade. This workbook provides a way to bridge the summer learning gap while developing fluency with seven different problem-solving strategies: Make a List, Guess and Check, Look for a Pattern, Draw a Picture, Make a Table, Write a Number Sentence, and Use Logic. Each summer workbook provides instruction and practice with second grade math skills, including addition & subtraction, fractions, money, time, patterns, geometry, data, and measurement. By completing 30 lessons of mixed review over the summer (one lesson, three days a week), students enter 3rd grade, ready to tackle word problems with highly effective strategies. These summer workbooks include Help Pages and a complete answer key.
