## 3rd Grade Math Curriculum

In third grade, students will develop proficiency in conceptual understanding, application, procedural skills, and fluency through the use of the McGraw-Hill

We follow the Diocese of Joliet Mathematical Standards Curriculum for Third Grade Math which are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The standards include:

* Representing and solving problems involving multiplication and division.

* Understanding properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division.

* Multiplying and dividing within 100.

* Solving problems involving the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), and identifying and explaining patterns in arithmetic.

* Using place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.

* Developing an understanding of fractions as numbers.

* Solving problems involving measurement and estimation of intervals of time, liquid, volumes, and masses of objects.

* Representing and interpreting data.

* Understanding concepts of area and relating area to multiplication and addition.

* Recognizing perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguishing between linear and area measures.

* Using reason with shapes and their attributes.

* Using mathematical vocabulary.

While achieving the math standards, focus will also be placed on the following Catholic standards:

* Develop the mental habits of precise, determined, careful, and accurate questioning, inquiry, and reasoning.

* Develop lines of inquiry (as developmentally appropriate) to understand why things are true and why they are false.

* Recognize the power of the human mind as both a gift form God and a reflection of Him in whose image and likeness we are made.

* Survey the truths about mathematic objects that are interesting in their own right and independent of human opinions.

The breakdown of the timed tests is as follows:

* Addition #1: Sums up to 10

* Addition #2: Sums up to 18

* Subtraction #1: Single-digit minus single-digit

* Subtraction #2: Double-digit minus single-digit

* Multiplication facts: 0 and 1

* Multiplication facts: 2
