3rd Grade Math Activities


home elementary second fourth fun math art comparisons book The Math Art supplemental curriculum can assist with the instruction of the following math skills/concepts that 3rd graders are required to learn:
  • Identifying, representing, and comparing numbers up to 1000.
  • Memorization and understanding of place value.
  • Skip counting by numbers 2-10.
  • Understanding the basics of fractions—especially the concepts “numerator” and “denominator.”
  • Memorizing and visually representing multiplication facts.
  • Adding and subtracting coins and making change.
  • Calculating linear measurements.
  • Measuring area and perimeter of complex shapes.
  • Measuring the volume of various boxes.
  • Describing, identifying, creating, and sorting various 2d shapes.
  • Comparing, sorting, and describing 3d shapes using the terms "face," "vertice," and "edge."
  • Performing and identifying flips, slides, and turns.
  • Identifying symmetrical shapes and lines of symmetry.
  • Reading and plotting locations on a grid.
  • Constructing and interpreting bar graphs, line graphs, and circle graphs.
The supplemental curriculum can also introduce 3rd graders to the following skills/concepts, which they will eventually need to master in later grades.
  • Identifying and understanding square numbers.
  • Measuring and comparing angle measurements up to 360 degrees.
  • Identifying similar and congruent shapes.
  • Calculating “real life distances” using a map scale.
  • Creating circles using given radii.
