## enVision Math Common Core 2nd Grade Answers Key Topic 2 Work with Equal Groups

**Essential Questions:**

How can you show even and odd numbers? How do arrays relate to repeated addition?

**enVision STEM Project: Plants, Animals, and Arrays**

Find Out Make lists of different types of plants and wild animals that you see. Look in your neighborhood or in a nearby park. Look at how the animals and plants come together.

Journal: Make a Book Show what you find out in a book. In your book, also:

- Tell about plants or animals that you see in groups. Look for patterns.
- Make an array of a group of plants and an array of a group of animals.

Answer:-

A number which is divisible by 2 and generates a remainder of 0 is called an even number. An odd number is a number which is not divisible by 2. The remainder in the case of an odd number is always “1”.

The property by which we classify an integer in math as even or odd is also known as parity.

#### Identifying even or odd number

**1. By comprehending the number at “ones” place**

In this approach, we analyze the number at “ones” place in an integer to check if the number is even or odd.

All the numbers ending with 1,3,5,7 and 9 are odd numbers. For example, numbers such as 11, 23, 35, 47 etc. are odd numbers.

All the numbers ending with 0,2,4,6 and 8 are even numbers. For example, numbers such as 14, 26, 32, 40 and 88 are even numbers.

**How do arrays relate to repeated addition?**

Arrays are objects we put into rows and columns.

By Rows

4 + 4 + 4 = 12

By Columns

3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 12

**Tell about plants or animals that you see in groups. Look for patterns.**

Plants are one of six big groups (kingdoms) of living things. They are autotrophic eukaryotes, which means they have complex cells, and make their own food. Usually they cannot move (not counting growth). Plants include familiar types such as trees, herbs, bushes, grasses, vines, ferns, mosses, and green algae.

Domestic animals such as dogs, cats, and cattle have been genetically adapted over generations to live alongside humans. Domesticated animals are animals that have been selectively bred and genetically adapted over generations to live alongside humans. They are genetically distinct from their wild ancestors or cousins.

**Make an array of a group of plants and an array of a group of animals.**

PROJECT 2B

What are scutes?

Project: Make a Scutes Poster

Answer:- Scutes means an external bony or horny plate or large scale.

PROJECT 2C

How can you arrange trees in an orchard?

Project: Create an Orchard Model

Answer:

A careful plan of the orchard is necessary for the most efficient and economic management. The following points should be borne in mind in preparing the plan.

1. Optimum spacing to accommodate maximum number of trees per unit area.

2. Stores and office building in the orchard should be constructed at the centre for proper supervision. .

3. Wells should be located at convenient places in different parts at the rate of one well for 2 to 4 hectares..

4. Each kind of fruit should be assigned in a separate block.

5. Fruits ripening at the same time should be grouped together.

6. Pollinators should be provided in deciduous fruits. In deciduous fruit trees, there are some varieties which require pollen from another variety to set fruits in them, otherwise, they will be barren. Such pollen donors are known as pollinators..Every third tree in every third row should be planted with a pollinator.

7. Irrigation channels should be laid along the gradients for most economical conduct of water. For every 30m length of channel, 7.5 cm slope should be given.

8. Roads should occupy minimum space for the economy of transport. The clearance between wind break and first row of trees is advantageous for the road.

9. Short growing trees should be allotted at the front and tall at the back for easy watching and to improve the appearance.

10. Evergreen trees should be in the front and deciduous ones behind.

11. Fruits attracting birds and animals should be close to the watchman’s shed.

PROJECT 2D

How do your flowers grow?

Project: Draw a Picture of Flowers

Answer:-

Flowering plants produce seeds that are then dispersed from their parent. When a seed comes to rest in an appropriate place with conditions suitable to its germination, it breaks open. The embryo inside the seed starts to grow into a seedling. Roots grow down to anchor the plant in the ground. Roots also take up water and nutrients and store food. A shoot grows skywards and develops into a stem that carries water and nutrients from the roots to the rest of the plant. The stem also supports leaves so they can collect sunlight. Leaves capture sunlight to make energy for the plant through the process of photosynthesis.

### Lesson 2.1 Even and Odd Numbers

**Solve & Share**

Use cubes to make the numbers below. Shade all the numbers that can be shown as two equal groups of cubes. What do you notice about the numbers you shaded?

I can … tell if a group of objects is even or odd.

Visual Learning Bridge

Convince Me! You break apart a tower of cubes to make two equal parts, but there is one cube left over. Is the number of cubes even or odd? Explain.

Answer:-

The total number of cubes are 15 which is odd because when we break the whole cube into two pieces one is left uneven and

the total number of cubes cannot be divide by two. So that is the reason the one is left unpair.

**Answer:
**

Explanation:- Dave says 12 is even. He says 21 is odd. Yes, He says 12 is even which is true because 12 divides by 2 and he also

says 21 is odd and this is also true because 21 does not divide by 2. So, both the statements are True.
