Printable Grade 3 Math Tests
Getting into a higher grade level calls for more learning. 3rd grade marks an important year in a student's progression cycle. They begin to think beyond the basic concepts, play around with bigger numbers and poke the word of measurements and shapes. It is the year where they develop their problem-solving skills along with logical thinking and organizational abilities. They make connections between concepts they have been learning. Let's take a look at what interesting mathematical concepts are taught to students in 3rd grade. - Number Theory and Operations; comparing different numbers, expansion from standard form, and rounding up of numbers. - Monetary Value; solving word problems, counting coins, and billing. - Data Analysis and Probability; interpreting data in graphs such as bar graphs, pictographs, and other tables, determining the probability or likelihood of a situation. - Algebraic Thinking; evaluating numeric relationships, finding the unknown. - Geometry and Spatial Sense; identifying shapes, finding the distance between vertical or horizontal points, knowledge of congruent, equivalent, and right angles. - Measurements; understanding of lengths, depths/widths, area, and capacity, interpreting time, basic definitions of weight, area, perimeter, capacity, temperature. The grade 3 core curriculum I find very sporadic and not as well thought through as the other levels. There is just a pinch of geometry in here, but they put what I feel is real-life geometry in the measurement section. I just don't get where they were going with that topic.
- Grade 3 Core Test Sampler - This sampler is helpful to give you an overview of what is presented most often at this level.
Choice Questions Form A - Products and quotients are the corner
stone of this area.
Choice Questions Form A Version 2 - This version focuses more
on the integers and operations.
Response Questions Form B - This test should actually take less
time than the multiple choice.
Response Questions Form C - I really took my time on this one
to make everything applicable to students lives.
3 Operations and Algebraic Thinking Quiz - The majority of the
problems work over word problems.
3 Numbers and Base Ten Operations and Geometry Quiz - Both of
these section are very light, so I batched them together.
3 Fractions Quiz - The core calls for mostly fraction comparisons
and understanding the nature of a fraction.
3 Measurement and Data Quiz - This is the fun age to meet up
with measurement. All the tools come together.
