Math Expectations for Addition and Subtraction
Grade 2
Students will use the properties of addition and subtraction, and the relationships between addition and multiplication and between subtraction and division, to solve problems and check calculations. Recall and demonstrate addition facts for numbers up to 20, and related subtraction facts. Use mental math strategies, including estimation, to add and subtract whole numbers that add up to no more than 50, and explain the strategies used. Use objects, diagrams, and equations to represent, describe, and solve situations involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers that add up to no more than 100.

Grade 3
Students will use the properties of operations, and the relationships between multiplication and division, to solve problems and check calculations. Recall and demonstrate multiplication facts of 2, 5, and 10, and related division facts. Use mental math strategies, including estimation, to add and subtract whole numbers that add up to no more than 1000, and explain the strategies used. Demonstrate an understanding of algorithms for adding and subtracting whole numbers by making connections to and describing the way other tools and strategies are used to add and subtract. R
epresent and solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of whole numbers that add up to no more than 1000, using various tools and algorithms

Math Expectations for Data Management and Graphing
Grade 2
Students are expected to 
sort sets of data about people or things according to two attributes, using tables and logic diagrams, including Venn and Carroll diagrams ; collect data through observations, experiments, and interviews to answer questions of interest that focus on two pieces of information, and organize the data in two-way tally tablesdisplay sets of data, using one-to-one correspondence, in concrete graphspictographsline plots, and bar graphs with proper sources, titles, and labels; identify the mode(s), if any, for various data sets presented in concrete graphs, pictographs, line plots, bar graphs, and tables, and explain what this measure indicates about the data; analyse different sets of data presented in various ways, including in logic diagrams, line plots, and bar graphs, by asking and answering questions about the data and drawing conclusions, then make convincing arguments and informed decisions.

Grade 3
Students are expected to sort sets of data about people or things according to two and three attributes, using tables and logic diagrams, including VennCarroll, and tree diagrams, as appropriate; collect data through observations, experiments, and interviews to  answer questions of interest that focus on qualitative and quantitative data, and organize the data using frequency tablesdisplay sets of data, using many-to-one correspondence, in pictographs and bar graphs with proper sources, titles, and labels, and appropriate scales; 
determine the mean and identify the mode(s), if any, for various data sets involving whole numbers, and explain what each of these measures indicates about the data; analyse different sets of data presented in various ways, including in frequency tables and in graphs with different scales, by asking and answering questions about the data and drawing conclusions, then make convincing arguments and informed decisions


Math Expectations for Patterning

Grade 2
Students are expected to identify, extend, create and make predictions about a variety of patterns including those found in real-life contexts. They need to create and translate patterns using various representations, including shapes and numbers. Students need to determine pattern rules and use them to extend patterns, make and justify predictions, and identify missing elements in patterns represented with shapes and numbers. They need to create and describe patterns to illustrate relationships among whole numbers up to 100.

Grade 3
Students are expected to identify and describe repeating elements and operations in a variety of patterns, including patterns found in real-life contexts; create and translate patterns that have repeating elements, movements, or operations using various representations, including shapes, numbers, and tables of valuesdetermine pattern rules and use them to extend patterns, make and justify predictions, and identify missing elements in patterns that have repeating elements, movements, or operations; create and describe patterns to illustrate relationships among whole numbers up to 1000.


Math Expectations for Whole Numbers

Grade 2
Students are expected to read, representcompose, and decompose whole numbers up to and including 200, using a variety of tools and strategies, and describe various ways they are used in everyday life; compare and order whole numbers up to and including 200, in various contexts; estimate the number of objects in collections of up to 200 and verify their estimates by counting; count to 200, including by 20s, 25s, and 50s, using a variety of tools and strategies; describe what makes a number even or odd.
