# Mathematics Scheme of Work for Primary 2

Mathematics is an important subject in the life of pupils in primary school, it builds a strong foundation for more advanced concepts in mathematics. Mathematics Scheme of work Primary 2 is prepared to help a teacher prepare children of 5-6 years with adequate mathematics knowledge

The scheme of work is divided into three terms and with each term, there is a specific objective and learning outcomes.

The objectives for first term involve counting numbers up to 100, identifying and writing numbers up to 200, and working with 2- and 3-digit numbers and adding and subtracting them. The pupils learned how to get the percentage of concrete objects and divide collections of objects into equal parts.

The objectives of the second term entail multiplication and division and solving sentence problems. Through this term, the learners will identify missing numbers in the equations and solve the quantitative aptitude problems.

The term will also encompass the use of money, where the pupils will be taught to identify Nigerian coins and notes and shop with money not exceeding N20.

Objectives of the third term include: measuring length; pupils will learn how to measure length through different units and assess the use of standard units, and compare the weight of different objects. Pupils will also understand 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes and measure the number of faces, corners, and edges.

For the objectives to be accomplished, the list of activities that teachers can engage in with their pupils is designed. For instance, in the first term, teacher-guided activities may include the use of counters to help pupils identify numbers counting up to 100, identify place values, and pupils construct and writing numbers counting 0-100.

In the second term, teacher-guided activities included understanding multiplication as repeated addition and being guided on how to finding missing numbers.

In the third term, teachers can expose pupils to the manipulation and utilization of empty containers, with the use centered around measuring capacity. Furthermore, teachers can further assist them in determining the areas of the different surfaces, including the use of standard measuring units .

Lastly, teachers can give pupils circlets, circles, and tangrams to discover shapes whose face is square, rectangular, or circular.
