While no placement test is available, the second grade Math with Confidence is designed for students who are 7 years or older, can count to 100 by 1s, 2s,5s and 10s; understand tens-place and ones-place in 2-digit numbers, write simple addition and subtraction equations and solve simple word problems with single-digit numbers, know most addition facts up to 9+9, know most subtraction facts up to 10; know the names and values of coins and identify combinations of a few coins. This is reviewed at the beginning of the Grade 2 text, but assumes the student is familiar with the information.
