Class III Math

Department:  Lower School

Class III Math
Class III math is based on the core objectives of place value up to 10,000, addition and subtraction of larger numbers, memorization of multiplication and division facts (factors 0-10), multiplying and dividing numbers, and working with fractions. Students also work with measurement, time, money, and graphs. Students work on critical thinking through problem solving, reasoning, and generalization. Simulation activities coincide with specific math units to connect application of knowledge to real life events. Cooperative learning and varied small group interactive activities support the concepts presented. Mathematical ideas are related to other areas of the curriculum so that students acquire broader notions about the interconnectedness to other fields.
