Welcome to 3rd Grade
Thank you for making your child's education a priority.
In order for our children to be truly successful
academically and socially, we need to work together .
Third Grade Math
Tues., Fri., every other Wed.
“The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple!”
Mathematical skills used as tools to solve meaningful problems
Flexible thinking and multiple strategies are encouraged
Talk, represent, and write about math
Work in pairs, individually, and/or groups
Computers, calculators, cubes, dice, rulers, number cards, pattern blocks, tiles, paper, pencil
Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley (SFAW)/ Investigations
Common Core/2010 Arizona State Math Standards
Embedded in everything we do in our classrooms
Solve, create and write expressions and equations to represent the problem and how they solved the problem
Communicate their problem solving and their strategies
Problem solving assessed on a monthly basis
Focus on mastery of multiplying and dividingnumbers from 0 through 10
6 x 4 = ? (x means “groups of”)
*(direct modeling) **** **** **** **** **** ****
*4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 24 (repeated addition)
* 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24 (skip counting)
* 6 x 2 = 12 and so 12 + 12= 24 or 5 x 4 = 20 and if I add 1 more 4, that’s 24 (derived facts)
*6 x 4 = 24 (fluent, efficient, accurate)
3rd Grade Computation
Addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers up to four digit numbers using multiple strategies should be mastered
1,234 1,000+5,000= 6,000
+5,678 6, 912
(algorithm with understanding)
3rd Grade Computation
Focus on understanding of fractions and fraction equivalence.
*Benchmark fractions- ⅓, ⅕, ⅙ ,⅔, ¾, ½
(pizzas, pies, candy bars, pattern blocks)
“Amy has 12 pencils. She is going to share the pencils fairly among 3 people. What fraction of the pencils will each person get?”
*Fraction of a set-
Focus on mastery of solving one step equations using addition and multiplication.
ex: Joey had 26 papers in his desk. His teacher gave him some more and now he has 100. How many papers did his teacher give him?
26 + n = 100
Focuses on understanding and application of place value.1, 345 (1,000+ 300+40+5)
*models, pictures, symbols, spoken and written words, and expanded notation.
Mon., Sept.12 6:30-7:30 pm- Parent Math Night!!
