Class Description: Saxon mathematics is based on the principle of developing math skills incrementally and reviewing past skills daily. It also incorporates regular and cumulative assessments. 3rd grade Saxon uses simulations and games to help students understand and practice new concepts with content integrated from other core subjects such as social studies. Students learn skip-counting, comparing and ordering numbers, identify ordinal positions, identify and complete patterns, add/subtract multi-digit numbers, basic division, add positive and negative numbers, fraction concepts, understand and calculate measurements, compare and measure mass, identify function rules, graphing concepts, and concepts of geometry.
Learning Goals/Performance Objectives: 3.1.A Read, write, compare, order, and represent numbers to 10,000 using numbers, words, and symbols. 3.1.C Fluently and accurately add and subtract whole numbers using the standard regrouping algorithms. 3.1.E Solve single- and multi-step word problems involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers and verify the solutions. 3.2.D Apply and explain strategies to compute multiplication facts to 10 X 10 and the related division facts. 3.3.B Compare and order fractions that have denominators of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, and 12. 3.4.B Identify and sketch right angles. 3.4.C Identify and describe special types of quadrilaterals. 3.5.E Construct and analyze pictographs, frequency tables, line plots, and bar graphs.
