Quaker Ridge classrooms use a program called "Primary Math" to teach our math curriculum. Students work with a textbook, a workbook, and an extra practice book. We have a wide variety of additional materials for reinforcement and enrichment as needed. Grade 3 units are on Numbers to 10,000, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, and Data Analysis. We are also learning to count in multiples. There is an expectation that your child will leave third grade with a strong number sense and have facts memorized. We are using lots of manipulatives to explore concepts like place value. We work from concrete to pictorial to abstract so that children will understand math concepts. The program is noted for its depth and breadth.
* Addition Facts
* Subtraction Facts
* Multiplication Facts* Division Facts* Counting in Multiples* Manipulatives
* Showing work and explaining strategies
* Freaky Friday
* Enrichment Folder* Math SupportPlace ValueWe start learning about ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands. Large and small number circles and number strips help us explore expanded numbers and compact or standard form. It's fun to use magnetic boards and dry erase markers too!Math Websites - Below are many interesting websites for you to use. Sometimes you will have a specific assignment to use a particular website in class or for homework. If you finish a math assignment for homework and have more time to practice math skills and explore math interests, you are free to explore these sites. Some are good for practice and review, while others can enhance critical and creative problem solving skills.

We spend many days using discs and place value charts to represent the numbers so that students thoroughly understand the process.
