Second Grade Arithmetic Worksheets
These second grade math worksheets continue to reinforce addition and subtraction skills, and introduce multiplication, division and simple fractions for the first time. With these worksheet wizards, your children will become more familiar with basic math, memorizing common sums such as 6 + 4 = 10 and 10 - 4 = 6. They will also be introduced to multiplication and division using arrays that show adding or subtracting repeatedly is the same as using multiplication or division. Finally, they will see the words "half" and "quarter" used in math story problems, and will need to understand the need to divide by two or four accordingly.

Add and Subtract | |
Create math worksheets for addition and subtraction. This unique worksheet maker creates eight "arrow questions", each containing two numbers. Your students need to find the difference then write both the addition and subtraction problems in the boxes. |
Add and Subtract 2 | |
Make more addition and subtraction worksheets like Add and Subtract above. This time, instead of your child finding the difference between two numbers, they have to find the result of adding or subtracting the given numbers. They are encouraged to consider two ways of solving each problem. For example: 9 + 7 = ? or ? - 7 = 9 |
Multiplication Breakdown | |
Make math worksheets for multiplication. This wizard creates a worksheet with eight multiplication problems. Your children need to break down the problem into simple addition. Choose a value to multiply by, either 2, 5, or 10, and then solve a problem such as 2 x 6, by writing: 2 x 6 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 12. |
Half or Double? | |
Make a math stories worksheet to practice halving and doubling. This wizard generates seven questions about quantities, lengths and money. Each question requires your child to halve of double a value to get the answer. An example sentence is: David had 30cm of string. Joanne's was half that amount. How long was Joanne's piece of string? |
Addition Puzzle | |
Make an addition puzzle for a fun, brain twisting challenge! Your students need to figure out the value of each of the three shapes in the grid using various mental strategies. Then they need to calculate the total of the remaining lines, and write the correct values in the shapes. |
Multiplication Arrays | |
Practice multiplication with totals up to 30 by visualizing arrays. For example, a 2 x 4 array turned on its side is 4 x 2. Have your students fill in the boxes with numbers that when multiplied together give the answers shown. There are two problems for each answer because the array can be standing or lying down. If there is another set of problems with the same answer, there must be another array that gives that answer, e.g. 2 x 6 = 12 and 6 x 2 = 12, but also 3 x 4 = 12 and 4 x 3 = 12. |
Division Arrays | |
Practice division with sums up to 30 by visualizing arrays. For example, an array of 8 dots can be divide two ways, 8 / 2 = 4 and 8 / 4 = 2. Essentially, this wizard is the division version of Multiplication Arrays above. If there is another set of problems with the same answer, there must be another array that gives that answer, e.g. 12 / 2 = 6 and 12 / 6 = 2, but also 12 / 4 = 3 and 12 / 3 = 4. |
Math at the Zoo | |
Here are some more math stories with a variety of addition and multiplication questions. Two examples of the problems on this worksheet are: We went to the zoo and saw 5 snakes, 16 camels, 29 giraffes, and 5 lions. How many animals did we see altogether? Each bag of carrots cost 50¢. How much would 5 of them cost? |
Addition Balance | |
Balance addition problems on scales by completing a second addition problem that matches the first. For example, 16 + 9 is the same as 7 + what? There are seven problems on each sheet with totals no greater than 50. |
Making Tens with 2 Digits | |
Practice making tens with these addition worksheets. Each problem requires your students to add two numbers, where the result will equal either 20, 30, 40 or 50. These math worksheets provide great practice in memorizing which numbers make ten when added together. |
Making Tens with 3 Digits | |
As a step up from the wizard above, these worksheets focus on 3-digit addition where the sum of the numbers is equal to 20, 30, 40 or 50. It's far more challenging than the 2-digit addition above, and that makes it all the more fun! |
Two-Step Problems | |
These math stories challenge your children's arithmetic skills in two-parts. A couple of examples of the problems on this worksheet are: There are 19 cookies. Sally takes 3 cookies and Paul takes 5. How many cookies are left? There are 17 people on the bus. 8 get off and 3 get on. How many people are there on the bus now? |
Fraction Problems | |
This wizard makes math story worksheets about fractions. Your students need to understand halves and quarters to solve these problems. Two examples of the problems on this worksheet are: Sally bought a packet of lollipops. There were 40 in the packet. She gave half to her brother. How many did they each have? Anna had 24 pairs of shoes. She wanted to give a quarter of them away. Could she? |
