3rd Grade Mathematics

Academic Year Mathematics

Students develop fluency with multiplication and division, including using the distributive property to simplify calculations. They also explore two-dimensional shapes, estimation, using variables to write expressions and equations, and other topics. Students expand their understanding of numbers by learning about fractions. We use word problems to teach students how to interpret words with mathematics, and puzzles to teach higher-order strategic thinking.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our 3rd Grade Mathematics course.
"Our homeschooled son is extremely gifted in math and science.  He really feels at home at AoPS Academy.  Through coaching and personal attention at AoPS, he achieved a 5 in AP Calculus at 11 years old and a 4 in AP Statistics at 12.  He also achieved an 800 on SAT II math at 12 years old.  Our son feels very comfortable in the atmosphere of AoPS, where being gifted in math is not looked down on, but treated with respect.  He has truly found his peers at AoPS Academy. 

AoPS Academy allows my son to be himself, learn that there are other kids well advanced in math, and gives him the confidence to know that it is OK to be great in math, and that other people will respect and value his ability."
