Third Grade Math

We are using the math program GO MATH! this year!  We will begin math this year with a few pretests, and then study concepts and skills related to addition and subtraction within 1,000, including rounding to the nearest 10 and 100.  This program also pulls in unrelated math skills the help children practice and remember what they already know.

*** HOW TO SOLVE A WORD PROBLEM ***

We are using the following strategies to help guide us through solving word problems:

READ:

Find the important information and make sure you understand the question or questions.

PLAN:

Pick a strategy to solve your problem (draw a picture, write an equation, look for a pattern, make a chart or list, work backwards, use logical reasoning, or guess and check).

SOLVE:

Do it!  Be neat, use a pencil, line up columns, form your numbers, use graph paper or lined paper.

LOOK BACK!

Is your answer reasonable? Does it make sense? Did you answer all of the question or questions? Did you label correctly?
