By the time they reach 3rd grade math, students have a better understanding of basic math concepts like addition and subtraction. Now, it’s time for them to branch into more complex mathematical ideas like multiplying, dividing, and using fractions as numbers.
Sometimes, making the leap can be a challenge. That’s why it’s so important to be prepared as a parent, so you can help your child become the best math student they can be!
Here’s what to expect in 3rd grade math. Keep in mind that standards vary by state, but most 3rd grade students are learning the same basic concepts.
Remember that all students learn at their own pace. If your student is struggling with concepts they’re learning in class, you can and should always talk to their teacher. DoodleMath helps kids build their confidence through fun, stress-free practice. Studies show that playing math games helps students learn and retain information!
The answer to this question varies a little bit state-to-state, but the major concepts that students learn in 3rd grade math are multiplication and division. They learn not only how to multiply and divide, but how multiplication and division are related to each other.
3rd graders also learn about fractions as parts of a whole, how to graph and chart basic data, and how to solve multi-digit addition and subtraction problems.
They don’t learn algebra, necessarily, but they will begin to understand basic concepts that will help them later. For example, they might be given a problem that requires them to multiply an unknown number, X, with a known number to get a known product. They will then have to divide the product by the known number to find X.
The most important thing you can do is be there to support them when they need it. If they come to you for help, feel free to use our guides to refresh your math skills and help them succeed. If they request more support, like a math tutor, talk to their teacher about recommendations, or see if they might be willing to meet before or after school to help your child.
Not always, no. However, some studies suggest that 3rd grade is a difficult year for many students, since they are transitioning from “lower elementary school” to “upper elementary school.” This means they will be expected to learn more advanced concepts, like multiplication and division. Just be prepared for this transition and listen to your child. If they ask for additional support, subscribe to DoodleMath and supply them with endless guides, games, and practice problems to build their confidence.
