Strand: MEASUREMENT AND DATA (2.MD)

Measure and estimate lengths in standard units (Standards 2.MD.1-4) and relate addition and subtraction to length (Standards 2.MD.5-6). They work with time and money (Standards 2.MD.7-8). They represent and interpret data (Standards 2.MD.9-10).

Standard 2.MD.5

Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units. For example, use drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

• Frog and Toad on the number line
The purpose of this task is for students to use a number line to show why two different sums are equal and to represent that equality with an equation. This task could be used to introduce the idea of representing addition on the number line; the teacher could set up a number line on the board or floor so students can act out where the two amphibious friends end up.
• Grade 2 Math Module 2: Addition and Subtraction of Length Units (Engage NY)
In this 12-day Grade 2 module, students engage in activities designed to deepen their conceptual understanding of measurement and to relate addition and subtraction to length. Their work in Module 2 is exclusively with metric units in order to support place value concepts. Customary units will be introduced in Module 7.
• Grade 2 Math Module 7: Problem Solving with Length, Money, and Data (Engage NY)
Module 7 presents an opportunity for students to practice addition and subtraction strategies within 100 and problem-solving skills as they learn to work with various types of units within the contexts of length, money, and data. Students represent categorical and measurement data using picture graphs, bar graphs, and line plots. They revisit measuring and estimating length from Module 2, though now using both metric and customary units.
• Grade 2 Unit 3: Understanding Measurement, Length, and Time (Georgia Standards)
In this unit students will know the following customary units for measuring length: inch, foot, yard, recognize the need for standard units of measure, understand the relationship of hours and days and nderstand the importance, usefulness of reasonable estimations and e able to represent the length of several objects by making a line plot.
• High Jump Competition
This task was designed to offer multiple entry points and solution strategies as students engage in the problem.
