This highly visual math will help your child envision math concepts.

Additional 3rd grade topics include shapes, fractions, decimals and money, time, data, and graphs. By the time your student finishes the Grade 3 math program, he or she will be able to:
- Understand and use fractions.
- Add using numbers up to 1,000.

- Categorize shapes based on number of sides (i.e., triangles, quadrilaterals and hexagons).
- Identify arithmetic patterns.
