Grade-3 Mathematics Course Outline

Grade-3 Mathematics Course Outline

This class follows the Common Core Standards for 3rd-grade mathematics. The course focuses on four critical areas.

First, the students will begin to develop an understanding of multiplication and division. They will learn these skills through activities and problems of equal-sized groups where multiplication finds an unknown product and division finds an unknown factor. The students will learn to solve multiplication and division problems involving single-digit numbers.

Second, the students will begin to understand fractions, especially fractions with numerator 1. They will begin to see that fractions represent parts of a whole and that the fractional part is relative to the size of the whole.

Third, the students will begin to understand area as a property used to describe two-dimensional shapes. They will learn to measure the area of a shape by counting how many identical smaller shapes can fit inside of it.

Fourth, students learn to describe and compare two-dimensional shapes. They connect their knowledge of shapes to their work with fractions by describing the area of part of a shape as a fraction of the whole shape.
