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.
