3rd Grade Math Worksheets

At the 3rd grade level math students are moving on to the more advanced operations. They have mastered addition and subtraction in previous grades. In the 3rd grade we help them understand these operations with much large values. We also have them use regrouping with subtraction, at this point. The focus shifts to multiplication and division in grade 3. When they complete the year, it is the goal to have them master all four basic math operations. They do not have to have these calculations memorized, just yet. They should be able to process them at a decent pace. Place value is rooted at this stage of their math career. They should have a good idea of how to round values to the nearest tens and hundreds place. In geometry students begin to get familiar with two- and three-dimensional shapes. The curriculum also explores word problems that incorporate a wide variety of real world measures. You will find printable math worksheets aligned to the third grade core curriculum in this section. We cover the entire third grade math curriculum. Complete with quizzes, homework, and tests too. If you look below, you will see the exact standard that each section addresses. This has been one of my more popular grade levels lately. We also have 3rd Grade Math Posters.

What Do Students Learn in 3rd Grade Math?

This grade is focused on the more difficult basic mathematical operations namely dividing and multiplying. The goal is to be fluent with these operations up to a value of 100 by the conclusion of the school year. Students often are memorizing their times tables at this age. This nicely transitions them into the concept of using rectangular arrays to better understand measures such as area. This also helps you demonstrate division as being a sort of grouping. When students have a good handle on the concept of division and finding quotients, we introduce fractions and help them understand their significance. In the geometry potion of 3rd grade work the focus is solely on two dimensional shapes. This is a very significant year as the success they get from fundamental skills will carry them through the remainder of elementary school.

Tips for 3rd Grade Math Students

When you begin your grade 3 school year you are full of hope and vigor. If you maintain and apply a few simple habits to your daily routine, it will be hard to not have a successful school year. The first thing you need to do when working on any math problems is to be sure you understand what the problem is asking of you. If you are not sure get in the habit of discussing this will your teacher or another adult, if your teacher is not available. This will give you a general idea of what a particular solution should look like. You should also get in the habit of creating and using flashcards. They can be on paper or in digital form. There is some research that helps us lean our preference towards paper flashcards though. The last habit we would like to get you in is to set aside time everyday to either practice math or work on homework. If you have no homework, go over your times tables or flashcards. These habits will pay off huge for you as you progress through grade 3.
