Please note:

Math-Salamanders.com is mainly based around the US Elementary school math standards. It is a site which has been designed for students in the US to learn, practice and improve their math skills.

Though the links on this page are all designed primarily for students in the US, they are also at the correct level and standard for Australian students.

One of the issues you may notice is that some of the spelling may be different as our site and corresponding worksheets use US spelling.

Year 2 is generally equivalent to 2nd Grade in the US.

The learning outcomes on this page have been taken from the Australian Education Curriculum Website
