My son did 3rd last year.


Long addition with carrying, long subtraction with borrowing, fractions, adding money, some basic geometry, and intro to multiplication and division. There was also some graph stuff.

Also word problems with higher addition/subtraction/mult/division.

This list is basic. Not all inclusive. You can get a list of what is typically taught in 3rd grade from the common core website.

My ODD did this:

Multiply times 2
1 Quart = 2 Pints
Multiply times 10

Prime and Composite Numbers
5,280 feet = 1 Mile
1 Ton = 2,000 Pounds

Sorry for it taking up so much space. I just copied and pasted directly from the Math-U-See website. What my daughter did is more what typically 3rd graders would be doing, I think, as if my son continues on the same path he's on right now, he'll be doing pre-algebra in 6th grade.

ETA: Not all of this was new to them. Some was review, some was digging deeper into stuff already introduced to them.

thanks, I am having my oldest tested (she is homeschooled) for math delays. She is currently working out of a third grade math book/workbook. When I spoke to our school district I told her what dd was doing (just got finished with division and remainders). The woman was shocked that it was a third grade book. She said that there are specific standards for each grade and division doesn't get introduced until fourth grade. That made me scratch my head a little because my middle dd is in third grade at a private school and they are doing division now. So I just wanted to see what other kids are doing. Thanks!

If your state uses common core then she is wrong.

We use Horizons math. DS just finished the 3rd grade book, and towards the end of the year they did division and remainders.
