Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
Mathematically proficient students in Second Grade:
- Accurately use definitions and previously established solutions to construct viable arguments about mathematics.
- During discussions about problem solving strategies, students constructively critique the strategies and reasoning of their classmates.
- For example, while solving 74 - 18, students may use a variety of strategies, and after working on the task, can discuss and critique each others’ reasoning and strategies, citing similarities and differences between strategies.
