# Common Core: 2nd Grade Math Flashcards

By the time students finish second grade, they are expected to have some understanding of the concepts of addition and subtraction (including completing those actions within 20), how addition and subtraction are related to length, and they are expected to understand place value.

These are just a few of the concepts and mathematical operations that second grade students are expected to learn that year; they are expected to be able to have some understanding of abstract reasoning and quantitative reasoning, and to use models to explain mathematics concepts as well.

If you’re a parent who is concerned about how your child will handle the requirements of Common Core Second Grade Math, you’ll likely want to find study aids and review materials that you can use with your child, to help them to master the concepts they are expected to know. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools include a set of online Flashcards for Common Core Second Grade Math that covers topics like identifying shapes based on the number of sides or angles, identifying the most appropriate tools for measurement of different items, and explaining place values.

There are more than 1,000 flashcards detailing concepts that your second grade-aged child might encounter during their study of math, and these flashcards offer students a pressure-free way to review the various math topics they might learn throughout the year. Each flashcard presents a multiple-choice question with five possible answers to choose from; your son or daughter will get immediate feedback as they choose an answer during their review session. Not only will they find out if they’ve chosen the correct answer, they will also see a detailed explanation of the answer. If your student has chosen the wrong answer, they’ll see a detailed explanation of how to arrive at the correct answer.

Whether you and your child have just a bit of time, or you have several hours to devote to review of Common Core Second Grade Math concepts, these flashcards are a flexible option for study. Your student can go through the flashcards at random to get an idea of how comfortable they are with the second grade math concepts, or focus on flashcards in specific sections to work on the exact topics they might struggle with. There is no penalty for skipping a flashcard, which comes in handy for topics that your child understands; there’s also the option to return to flashcards that you’ve already provided an answer for, also with no penalty.

If you’re interested in other study tools to help your child with Common Core math, Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools has many Full-Length Practice Tests to help you see where your son or daughter may need more help, shorter Practice Tests focused by individual topics, an interactive syllabus called Learn By Concept, and a Question of the Day series that provides a random question about concepts appropriate for second grade students in the Common Core math standards. You can also track your child’s understanding of the topics with a chart of which questions were answered correctly and which were provided an incorrect answer.
