• EVERYDAY MATH

In 3rd grade, we will continue using the Everyday Math program. It is a spiral based program that allows the students to continue practicing skills that they have already learned in order for them to master them and then to build upon them in the future. This page will allow you to learn the overview of each unit as your child learns in school. Below are also directions on how to access the Everyday Math website with your child's login. There are no study guides for math. Your child will be given a week's notice before all math tests.

Math Website

In order to access any online materials, including homelinks, extra resources, games, the Student Reference Book, and more, you will need to log in to the Everyday Math website.

Unit 1

In this unit, an active and collaborative learning environment is established. Children recall how to use a variety of math tools to solve problems, tell time to the nearest minute, and use mathematical models to calculate elapsed time. This unit also lays the foundation for developing multiplication and division strategies.

Unit 2

In this unit, students will begin to use all four operations and make sense of one and two step number stories.  They will learn multiple ways to represent word problems, such as, arrays, diagrams, pictures, number models, and words.  Through sharing, comparing, creating and interpreting representations, student will improve their problem solving strategies and recognize that there are multiple ways to solve a number story.

Unit 3

In this unit, students will use place value of 2-3 digit numbers to practice and develop strategies using addition and subtraction.  Students will use arrays to represent multiplication and use them to develop strategies to solve multiplication facts.

Unit 4

In this unit, students will be able to find the area and perimeter of a variety of rectangular shapes, as well as, distinguish between the two. They will measure to the nearest half inch. They will also use data to develop scaled line plots.  Students will be able to use attributes to classify polygons and quadrilaterals.  They will also identify and measure the perimeter of polygons.

Unit 5

In this unit, students relate their part-whole understanding of fractions to visual and symbolic representations including standard notation, and they will begin to explore fraction equivalence.  Students will use their understanding of multiplication to help develop strategies to help with unfamiliar facts by using arrays, area models and properties of multiplication.

Unit 6

In this unit, students compare strategies to solve the same problem and reflect on which strategy is more appropriate and efficient.  Students check inventory of multiplication facts which can be used to derive remaining unknown facts. They will use multi step number stories with multiple equations and represent unknown quantities with letters.  The introduction of parentheses is introduced in this unit. Students will learn the order of operations and how parentheses function as grouping symbols that affect the order of operations.

Unit 7

In unit 7, students will focus on comparing, estimating, and the measuring liquid volumes. They continue to develop an understanding of fractions as numbers by exploring a new area fraction model and use fractions as representations of distances on a number line.

Unit 9

In this unit, students apply and continue to develop their understanding of multiplication and division as they use basic facts to help solve word problems using mental math and multiply larger factors.  They will work to calculate elapsed time more efficiently and interpret length of day project.

*There is no unit test for this unit. Instead, the End of the Year test will be given over the course of 3 days.*
