Common Core Math Kit - Grade 3
Grade 3. This kit will provide students with challenging opportunities to apply math in real-world situations as they progress from practicing basic math skills, to strengthening their abilities, and finally deepening their understanding of key math concepts.
While third graders begin studying more complex arithmetic, provide them with resources that promote the investigation of math. The variety of tools in this kit will support them as they examine everything from early multiplication skills to liquid measurement. Also includes a free three-drawer storage cart.
All products were carefully chosen to help students:
- Understand the relationship between multiplication and division using numbers within 1000
- Demonstrate strategies for solving multi-digit arithmetic
- Develop an understanding of fractions
- Explore concepts of elapsed time, area and perimeter, and estimating volume and mass
- Categorize shapes by attributes and partition them into equal parts with equal areas
