How can a 3rd Grade Math tutor help your child?
The concepts covered in third grade math are somewhat more intensive than those presented in first and second grade. Where previous coursework focused on the relationships between numbers, like addition and subtraction, third grade math introduces the concepts of multiplication, division, and fractions. In third grade, the curriculum begins to move quickly, and a student is expected to be adept at solving math problems. It can be a real challenge for some, and falling behind at this point can have serious academic consequences for many years to come. Developing a fundamental understanding of these base operations is critical to a student's success in future math courses. Simply guessing or counting through one problem at a time may be sufficient in third grade, but understanding the conceptual basis of multiplication, division, and other third grade math skills is the key to succeeding in math. Middle school, high school, and even college- and graduate-level math classes require a fundamental comprehension of the principles learned early on in elementary education.
The new Common Core solving processes that accompany third grade-level math education can sometimes seem foreign and unduly complicated. If your child's learning style does not align with his or her teacher's methods, your student can easily fall behind during this critical period of math development. At this point, your child is being given the tools they will need to build an understanding of the scientific and technical world around him or her. Mastering these skills may seem challenging, but they are the keys to future success in mathematics.
