## Quarterly Overview of Grade 2 Mathematics

The objectives and outcomes for each unit are common across FCPS and based on the Virginia Standards of Learning. The pacing by quarter and by week provides an example of how the curriculum can be organized throughout the year. Teacher teams may adjust the pacing or order of units to best meet the needs of students.

• Read and interpret data represented in pictographs and bar graphs.

### Unit 11: Probability

Students will:

• Use data from experiments to predict outcomes when the experiment is repeated.

## Assessments

Student assessments are part of the teaching and learning process.

• Teachers give assessments to students on an ongoing basis to
• Check for understanding
• Gather information about students' knowledge or skills.
• Assessments provide information about a child's development of knowledge and skills that can help families and teachers better plan for next steps in instruction.

For testing questions or additional information about how schools and teachers use test results to support student success, families can contact their children's schools.

In Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), second grade tests focus on basic literacy and numeracy development.
