Third Grade

  • In Grade 3, instructional time will focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of multiplication and division and strategies for multiplication and division within 100; (2) developing understanding of fractions, especially unit fractions (fractions with numerator 1); (3) developing understanding of the structure of rectangular arrays and of area and (4) describing and analyzing two-dimensional shapes.

    While the content learning goals describe the mathematics students should be able to understand and do, the first eight learning goals (The Standards for Mathematical Practice) describe how students should engage with these mathematical concepts and skills as they grow in mathematical maturity and expertise. Teachers will connect the mathematical practices to mathematical content in all mathematics instruction. These learning goals merit the most time, resources, innovation, and focus necessary to qualitatively improve the instruction, assessment, and student achievement in mathematics.
