Class Name: 3rd Grade Math
Teacher: Cindy Geer
Class Description: We use the Saxon Math 3, Second
Edition. We also use Study Island assessment program, various math websites, and ACE (Assessment Conditioning Exercises)
notebook as supplemental resources. This class is designed to promote
learning through small increments of new math concepts presented daily,
and then a continuous review of those concepts in the assignments that
Learning Goal: This class is designed to meet the Kansas math standards for third grade.
Learning Outcomes: The student will demonstrate
mastery of math standards using both formal and informal assessments,
along with teacher observation.
Standard 1: Number and Computation
• The student uses numerical and computational concepts and procedures in a variety of situations.
o M.3.1.1.K2a Compares and Orders whole numbers from 0 through 10,000 with and without use of concrete objects
o M.3.1.1.K3a-c Knows, explains, uses equivalent representations
including the uses of mathematical models for: addition, subtraction,
multiplication, and division
o M.3.1.1.K4 Determines the value of mixed coins and bills with a total value of $50.00 or less
o M.3.1.4.K7 Identifies multiplication and division fact families
o M.3.1.4.A1a-b Solves one-step real-world addition or subtraction problems with money
o M.3.2.1.A2 Recognizes multiple representations of the same pattern
Standard 2: Algebra
• The student uses algebraic concepts and procedures in a variety of situations.
o M.3.2.3.K3 Generalizes numerical patterns using whole numbers from 0
through 200 with one operation (addition, subtraction) by stating the
rule in words
Standard 3: Geometry
• The student uses geometric concepts and procedures in a variety of situations.
o M.3.3.1.K3 Recognizes and describes the square, triangle, rhombus,
hexagon, parallelogram, and trapezoid from a patter block set
o M.3.3.2.K2 Reads and tells time to the minute using analog and digital clocks
o M.3.3.2.A1a,b,e Solves real-world problems by applying appropriate measurements
Standard 4: Data
• The student uses concepts and procedures of data analysis in a variety of situations.
o M.3.4.1.K2 Lists some of the possible outcomes of a simple event in an
experiment or simulation including use of concrete objects
o M.3.4.2.K3a-d Finds statistical measures of data set with less than
ten data points using whole numbers from 0 through 1,000 (minimum,
maximum, range, mode, median)
** Due to the nature of the class and the individual level of student
mastery involved, it is important to understand that there is a
possibility of changes that may occur throughout the school year.
100% - 91% A
90% - 82% B
81% - 73% C
72% - 64% D
63% and Below F
If an absence is excused the student will be allowed to complete the
assignment without penalty in a reasonable amount of time based upon
teacher discrepancy. If an absence is unexcused the student is still
responsible for completing the assignment, but will be given a zero.
Homework is given daily. There are test that are given after every
five lessons. If an assignment is turned in late, the student is docked
20 percentage points after the assignment is graded and scored. Example:
A late assignment is turned in and graded, if the student receives a
90% on the assignment, I will dock 20 percentage points and the final
grade for that assignment will be a 70%.
