Math Information
Check out the "Math Updates" section below for an update about what we are doing in math class this quarter.

General Math Info.
Mrs. Daher teaches all of the third grade math.  In third grade math, we have several areas of focus.  We spend a lot of time working on two step story problems.  Students will also learn about fractions, area and perimeter, two dimensional geometry, and they will develop an understanding of multiplication and division concepts.  
We are using a math program in third grade called Eureka Math.  Students will not have a textbook or workbook.  Students will have a math worksheet page for homework on most nights (except for Fridays, test days, and days when we are reviewing for tests). Please review and correct the nightly math worksheet page with your child after they have completed it and put your initials next to their name on the page. This will help encourage students to complete the pages and do a careful job on them. The homework is not graded since its purpose is to practice skills; however, students will receive a homework grade each grading period that reflects whether the daily worksheet pages have been done on time.  Be sure to check your child's planner to see what tonight's assignment is.
Please remember to have your child work on their math facts for 5 or 10 minutes each night with flashcards.  Students should be fluent in their addition facts before they enter third grade.  If a child needs to figure out a fact answer using their fingers or counting in their heads, then they are not fluent with that particular fact.  Once a child is fluent with his/her addition facts, those facts can be used to become fluent in subtraction facts.  Students should be comfortable with their addition and subtraction facts prior to third grade.  In third grade, our focus is on becoming fluent with our multiplication facts (from times 0 up to times 10 facts) by the end of third grade.  We then use those facts to start to build fluency on our division facts.  Division facts (up to divided by 9) are introduced in third grade.  

I have a lot of great math website links that you can access by clicking on "links/downloads" which is located on the navigation menu to the left (under the math page).

Math Updates - second quarter
In the second quarter, we will work on module 2 and module 3 in math.
Module 2 
In module 2, we learn about various types of measurement.  We tell time to the exact minute and work on elapsed time problems.  Students get familiar with grams and kilograms as they learn about metric mass.  They also learn about metric liquid volume and capacity with liters and milliliters. 
As the module continues, students round numbers to the nearest ten or hundred.  We use our rounding skills to determine whether answers are reasonable.  Students continue working on story problems with an emphasis on story problems involving mass, time, and liquid volume.  We  also practice adding and subtracting numbers (of 1,000 or less) with and without regrouping.
Module 3 
In module 3, we introduce the remaining basic multiplication facts (times 6 up to times 9 facts).  We return to the concepts of division and multiplication and start working on more difficult story problems (including 2 step problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division).  We will also learn about multiplying multiples of tens times single digit numbers (like 40 x 6).
