The focus of the early chapters of McDougal Littell Math Course 2 is on rational numbers, their operations, and their algebraic representation. Students will build their understanding of these concepts using models, such as rulers, number lines, and verbal models. They will also apply their skills to problem-solving situations and use estimation to check reasonableness. Topics from math strands, such as measurement conversions, area, averages, and data displays, are introduced early in the course and then integrated and expanded upon throughout. Later chapters in McDougal Littell Math Course 2 include topics such as equations and functions, geometry, square roots, and probability. The number† and variety of problems, ranging from basic to challenging, give students the practice they need to develop their math skills. Every lesson in McDougalLittell Math Course 2 has both skill practice and problem solving, including multi-step problems. These types of problems often appear on standardized tests and cover a wide variety of math topics. To help students prepare for standardized tests, McDougal Littell Math Course 2 provides instruction and practice on standardized test questions in a variety of formats – multiple choice, short response, extended response, and so on.
