Current 2nd grade students should complete the following priority digital lessons. Resources for teachers, tutors, and caregivers to use alongside each lesson are also available.

Counting and Place Value

19 Lessons | Grade 2 Mission 3

This Mission expands place value understanding to more abstract concepts, like centimeters, ones, and tens. Students will also expand their understanding of the base ten system with hundreds and learn counting up to 1,000.

Add, Subtract, and Solve

29 Lessons | Grade 2 Mission 4

This Mission teaches students how to  use their understanding of base ten to dive into decomposing and composing in addition and subtraction for numbers up to 200.

If students complete the Intensive Series, current 2nd graders should also complete: 

Add and Subtract Big Numbers

20 Lessons | Grade 2 Mission 5

This Mission builds on students' addition and subtraction skills, now using numbers up to 1,000 and increasing the focus on efficiency and checking their work.


What instructional content is covered in each digital lesson?

Digital lessons follow the scope and sequence of Eureka Math/EngageNY. They include fluency, concept development, and independent practice. Digital lessons received a top-rating from EdReports.org and are aligned to state standards.

I am tutoring kids in a summer program. Can I use this content? 

Summer Intensive Series can be used for summer school, tutoring programs, or targeted interventions. We also offer materials that tutors or teachers can use to facilitate rich math discussions around the core ideas of each Intensive Series.  

My child is new to Zearn Math. Can I use at home as a parent? 

As a nonprofit, our instructional materials are free for families and kids. Our Parent/Caregiver supports offer the information you need to create an account for yourself and your child, help your child log in to their account, and orient them to Zearn Math Digital Lessons, so they can begin learning with Zearn Math at home.

How much time does each digital lesson take?

Each digital lesson takes about 30 minutes to complete. Kids work through each component at their own pace. After completing one lesson, they automatically go on to the next lesson.

How effective are digital lessons?

Studies show that completing three Zearn Math lessons weekly alongside daily instruction leads to learning gains equivalent to 140 days of additional instructional days a year. Our materials qualify for newly released Federal ESSER funding.
