Math 3

The third-grade standards place emphasis on learning multiplication and division facts through the twelves table. Students will be fluent in the basic addition facts through the tens table and the corresponding subtraction facts. Concrete materials and two-dimensional representations will be used to introduce addition and subtraction with fractions and the concept of probability as chance. Students will use standard units (U.S. Customary and metric) to measure temperature, length, liquid volume, and weight and identify relevant properties of shapes, points, line segments, rays, angles, vertices, and lines. Students will investigate and describe the identity and commutative properties for addition and multiplication.

Students are encouraged to use correctly the concepts, skills, symbols, and vocabulary identified in the standards.
