Overview

In Math Grade 3, students will learn to multiply and divide within 100 to solve word problems. The course provides the opportunity for students to develop an understanding of fractions, arrays, and area. Describing and analyzing 2-D shapes is another focus of the course. Other engaging activities include learning about data, time, and measurement.

Please view the Elementary Parents’ Survival Guide: The First Four Weeks of Online Learning for guidance on helping your student in the transition to online learning.

Course Requirements

To achieve success, students are expected to submit work in each course weekly. Students can learn at their own pace; however, “any pace” still means that students must make progress in the course every week. To measure learning, students complete self-checks, practice lessons, multiple choice questions, projects, discussion-based assessments, and discussions. Students and families are expected to maintain regular contact with teachers because, when teachers, students, and parents work together, students are successful.
