Elementary Mathematics Grade 3
Number of Credits
Estimated Completion Time
In Math Grade Three, students will learn to multiply and divide within 144 to solve real-world problems. The course provides the opportunity for students to develop an understanding of fractions and area. Students will add and subtract multi-digit numbers using a standard algorithm and will define attributes of quadrilaterals. Describing and analyzing lines is another focus of the course. Other engaging activities include learning about data, time, and measurement.
