What We Are Learning

  • First Trimester Learning Highlights

    Grade 3: First Term Math -I Can Statements



    Operations and Algebraic Thinking: I Can Use Multiplication and Division to Help Me Understand Math


    ❏ I can understand multiplication by thinking about groups of objects.

    ❏ I can understand division by thinking about how one group can be divided into smaller groups.

    ❏ I can use what I know about multiplication and division to solve word problems.

    ❏ I can find the missing number in a multiplication or division equation.  [__ x 4=20 or 25/ __=5]

    ❏ I can use the commutative property of multiplication. Turn around rule [2x5=5x2]

    ❏ I can use the associative property of multiplication.  [3x5x2 can be found by 3x5=15, then 15x2=30 or 5x2=10,

        then 10x3=30]

    ❏ I can use the distributive property of multiplication.  [8x7 as 8x(5+2); 8x5=40 and 8x2=16; so 40+16=56]

    ❏ I can find the answer to a division problem by thinking of the missing factor in a multiplication problem.  [20/5,

         think what times 5 = 20?]

    • I can multiply and divide within 100 easily and quickly because I know how multiplication and division are related.


    Measurement and Data: I Can Use Measurement and Data to Help Me Understand Math

    • I can calculate area by using what I know about multiplication and addition.

    • I can understand that the area of plane shapes can be measured in square units. [Plane shapes are 2-dimensional (flat)]

    • I can measure area by counting unit squares.
