What is your third grader doing in math?
Title says all. What is your thirdgrader working on in math this year? Thanks!

Re: What is your third grader doing in math?
anyone?

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 SON did the following:
Building a Rectangle Solve for an Unknown Divide by 1 and 2 Symbols: "÷", "/" Divide by 10 Symbol of Half Rectangle Divide by 5, by 3 Perpendicular and Parallel Lines Divide by 9 Finding Area of a Parallelogram Divide by 6 Finding Area of a Triangle Divide by 4 Average Divide by 7 and 8 Finding Area of a Trapezoid Place Value Notation Place Value: Thousands and Millions Place Value: Billions and Trillions Expanded Notation Divide: One Digit with Remainders Upside Down Multiplication Divide: Two Digit by One Digit Divide: Three Digit by One Digit Fractional Remainders Rounding and Estimation Divide: Three Digit by Two Digit Divide: Four Digit by One Digit Divide: Four Digit by Two Digit Divide: Multiple Digit by Multiple Digit Volume of a Rectangular Solid Fraction of a Number Roman Numerals: I, V, X, L,C Fraction of 1 Roman Numerals: D, M, Multiples of 1000 My ODD did this: Rectangle: Factors and Product Multiply by 1, by 0, Symbols Skip Count by 2, 5 and 10 Multiply times 2 1 Quart = 2 Pints Multiply times 10 Patterns: Coloring and Thinking Multiply times 5 Finding the Area of a Rectangle Finding the Area of a Square Solve for an Unknown Skip Count by 9 Multiply times 9 Skip Count by 3 Multiply times 3 3 feet = 1 yard 1 Tablespoon = 3 Teaspoons Skip Count by 6 Multiply times 6 Skip Count by 4 Multiply by Multiples of 10 using "Mittens" Multiply times 4 4 Quarts = 1 Gallon 4 Quarters = 1 Dollar Skip Count by 7 Multiply times 7 Multiply times 100 with "Mittens" Skip Count by 8 Multiply times 8 8 Pints = 1 Gallon Multiple Digit Multiplication Place Value Notation Rounding to 10, 100, 1,000 Estimation Multiply times 11 and times 12 Double Digit Multiplication with Regrouping Multiple Digit Multiplication with Regrouping Finding Factors 25¢ = 1 Quarter 10,000  100,000  1,000,000 16 Ounces = 1 Pound 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 MathUSee 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 prealgebra 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.

Ummm, how specific do you want? :giggle:
The began the year reviewing basic addition and subtraction. Adding and subtracting 34 digit numbers........23 numbers at a time. Multiplication and Division Timed multiplication tests Finding area of all shapes fractions graphing arrays writing equations commutative property associative property distributive property inverse operation fact families 
Re: What is your third grader doing in math?
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!

Uhhhh....my second grader started multiplication and division already!

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