Instruction in our classroom meets or exceeds South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Standards. Third-grade students begin to feel confident in their skills and have an increased problem-solving ability. The South Carolina College- and Career- Ready Standards uses these attributes to interest your child in the more advanced topics of multiplication and division. Third graders begin work with fractions and start to estimate, interpret graphs, and predict outcomes. They learn the basic concepts of Geometry. Don’t be surprised when your child must explain the steps, one at a time, needed to solve a math problem. There are several reasons why this is now common practice. The activity requires students to organize their work. It provides a “trail” for checking answers; shows exactly what was done; and allows for intervention exactly at the point where necessary. By showing their work, students are more accurate and avoid habits that could hinder their math progress.
Please Note: Student must know their multiplication facts (0-10) by the end of Quarter 1!
Ready Mathematics is a rigorous instruction and practice program, supports a rich classroom environment in which mathematical reasoning, mathematical discourse, and a range of mathematical practices all thrive. This course reflects the connection between the latest research and practical classroom application.
