3rd Grade 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.
