Students in 2nd grade are expanding their number sense to include fractions and decimals as well as building fluency with operations. They are ready to build foundations for algebraic thinking as well as geometric reasoning.

Wixie's Curriculum library includes a range of math-focused templates you can use for formative assessment purposes or to support student thinking as they tackle complex math tasks in your classroom.

Teachers can assign Wixie templates directly to students, or customize templates to differentiate them for specific learners in their classroom. Instructions for students show in the Wixie interface and you can ask students to record their voice to explain their mathematical thinking.

# Math Standards

Here are a few examples of the types of templates you will find in Wixie for specific math learning targets.

## Add and subtract within 20.

Assign templates like these to get students to fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies.

## Open-ended Math Projects

Wixie is way more than a template tool. With Wixie, students can write, draw, and record to demonstrate their mathematical understanding and comprehension in creative ways.  For example, students can capture images of math in the real world, write math stories, and create math designs that use measurement and geometry.

Explore creative math lessons that get second-grade learners making and applying their math knowledge.
