In Math Grade Three, students will learn to multiply and divide within 144 to solve real-world problems. The course provides the opportunity for students to develop an understanding of fractions and area. Students will add and subtract multi-digit numbers using a standard algorithm and will define attributes of quadrilaterals. Describing and analyzing lines is another focus of the course. Other engaging activities include learning about data, time, and measurement.

Course Materials

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.
