The Teaching of Arithmetic: The Work of the Second School Year

by David Eugene Smith - 1909

Whether or not arithmetic has a definite time allotment in the first grade, it usually has one in the second, although some teachers oppose it even here. The argument already advanced holds the more strongly here, especially as in many schools, the child is quite prepared to use a text-book by the middle of this year. The Leading Mathematical Features: In schools of average advancement, where the question of language is not as serious as in some cities in the East, children in this grade may be expected to complete the addition tables and to learn the multiplication tables to 10 X 5. Number Space: Children will now take an interest in counting to 1000, first by units to 10, then by 10's to 100, then completely to 100, then by 100's to 1000, and finally completely to 1000. Their operations may also be anywhere within this space, although, of course, most of their results will involve only small numbers. In the Roman notation the limit may be set at XII, this sufficing for the reading of time and for the chapter numbers of their books.
