     Below are the topics that will be covered on Unit 2 and 3 Assessment:

    • Multiplying by tens, hundreds, and thousands
    • Estimating Products
    • Multiplicative Comparison Problems
    • Using an area model (expanded form) to multiply 1-2 digit numbers
    • Using the standard algorithm (regrouping) to multiply 1-d digit numbers
    • Solving multiplication word problems and multistep word problems

     Below are instructional videos to help practice skills that will be covered on the assessment:

    Practice multiplying 3 digit by 1 digit numbers

    Practice and quiz yourself on multiplying 2-digit numbers

    Week of November 5, 2018

    This week we will finish up Unit 3 by learning how to use an area model (expanded form) and the standard algorithm (regrouping) to multiply by 2 - digit numbers. Our Unit 3 assessment will take place the following week on Thursday, November 15th. Study guides will be distributed this week. 

    Students should stlll be practicing their basic multiplication facts. There will be another basic fact quiz coming up this week! Use the tab to the left under "practice your multiplication facts" to practice each night!

    Week of October 29, 2018

    This week we will start Unit 3: Multiply by 2-digit numbers! Students took their Unit 2 quiz and will receive it back this week. It should be returned back, signed. We will be working with the same strategies we used in Unit 2, now with double-digit numbers. This week we will be working on multiplying by tens, estimating products, and using area models.

    Week of October 22, 2018

    This week we will be wrapping up unit 2 by learning how to multiply multi-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using regrouping also known as the standard algorithm. We will review unit 2 on Thursday and take our quiz on Friday. Review sheets for the quiz were handed out last Friday. You can also find the review sheet on this website under the tab "study guide". There will be a basic fact multiplication timed quiz that will be coming up this week. It will be graded and counted toward students' overall average. Please ensure that students are practicing their basic facts every night!

    Week of October 15, 2018

     

    This week we wil be working on multiplying tens, hundreds, and thousands, estimating products, and multiplying multi-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using an area model. It's important that students continue working on their basic multiplication facts. A timed mutiplication quiz was given last week and will be returned this week. It should be signed and returned back to to school. This quiz is not calculated into the students' average (yet) but just a way for them to see what they still need to work on. There will be a multiplication quiz coming up that will be graded (TBA).

    Unit 1 is a wrap! We finished our first assessment on Friday. Students will be given back their assessment on Tuesday and should be reviewed, signed, and given back by Friday. We will be starting Unit 2: Multidigit Multiplication this week. We will start with multiplication comparison equations, multiplying tens and hundreds, and estimating products. 

    In this unit its's very important that students brush up on and practice their multiplication facts and times tables. Students are expected to know their times tables as they were tested on these in third grade. Students will have multiplication quizzes in this unit. These quizzes will be simple and quick where questions will look like this:

    4 x 2 = ________ or 6 x 8 = __________.

    Week of October 1, 2018

    This week we will be wrapping up our first unit (place value)! We will finish up adding and subtraciting large numbers in word problems and then we will review on Wednesday. Our first assessment will be this Thursday, October 4th. Study guides were given out last week. The study guide will be due on Wednesday and will count as a homework grade. Our next unit will be multiplying by 1-digit numbers. Please check out the "practice your multiplication facts" tab on my website. This is a great resource for students to use to help them practice their basic facts while also tracking their progress! We will be using it in class as well. Students will be given timed multiplication tests throughout our unit so this is a great way to prepare at home.

    Week of September 23, 2018

    This week we are going to wrap up rounding to any place value. We will then start to practice adding and subtracting large numbers using US standard algorithm. The focus this week will also focus on solving word problems involving addition and subtraction of the large numbers.  Below are a few instructional videos to help review skills taught in class:

    Week of September 17, 2018

    I am so excited to start our first unit this week! 

    Our first unit will be on place value, addition, and subtraction to one million. 

    This week we will be working on finding a digit's value, reading and writing large numbers, comparing large numbers, and rounding large numbers.

    In third grade, students have learned how to round numbers to the nearest ten and hundred. This year, we will be learning how to round large numbers to any place value (nearest thousand, ten thousand, hundred thousand, million). We will also be adding and subtracting whole numbers within 1,000,000. 

    Students were given their gomath workbooks this week and will have homework each night. Students will copy their homework down before the period is over Please use the homework tab to check for homework each night in case your child missed the HW for that day.
