Common Core: 3rd Grade Math Flashcards
Third grade-level math is not what it used to be. Under Common Core standards, third graders are expected to have some understanding of multiplication, and division, as well as strategies to perform those operations within 100; they begin learning about fractions, rectangular arrays, and also about how to analyze two dimensional shapes.
If you’re like many other parents, you’re looking for study aids to help your third grader to fully embrace and understand his or her math homework. This is where Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools can come in handy, particularly Flashcards for Common Core Third Grade Math.
There are thousands of free flashcards online that cover a range of subjects – including categorizing shapes based on the number of sides or angles, determining the perimeter of a shape with given measurements, how multiplication and area are related, and numbers and operations in base 10. You can expect to see questions on patterns in arithmetic, and solving multiplication and division problems as well as more basic concepts.
This Common Core for Third Grade Math study review product also includes flashcards with multiplication problems for your child to solve, as well as multiple explanations of how to get to the appropriate answer. One answer is numerical, while another shows the solution in pictures. The different ways of explaining the answers are meant to give third graders explanations that address the different ways that each child learns. Essentially, the multiple explanations are meant to help students who learn best with pictures, as well as those who learn better with words and numbers
When you sit down with your third grader to review these math concepts, you’ll find that each of the thousands of available flashcards presents a question and multiple options that could be answers. When your child chooses an answer, they get feedback in an instant. You will both know whether your child got the right answer or the wrong one, and you’ll also see the explanations of how to get to the correct answer.
If you like the progress that your child is making with the Flashcards for Common Core 3rd Grade Math, you may also like the other options that Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools offer. There are hundreds of Practice Tests that you can have your child take as he or she learns the different mathematics concepts, to see how he or she is truly understanding the work and reasoning behind the concepts; a Question of the Day series that gives a single, random question each day to focus on a specific concept from the different topics that third grade students are expected to learn. You can also use Learn by Concept, which puts an interactive syllabus at your fingertips – that syllabus focuses on the outcomes of the common core standards and allows your son or daughter to work though those concepts at their own pace and get immediate feedback, much like the flashcards. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools don’t stop there though. If you sign up for a free account, you can track your son or daughter’s progress and understanding of the various concepts.
