## **MATH CARNIVAL -- Thursday, May 10th from 5:30-7:00**

## *The math SOL will be given on Tuesday, May 22nd*

## April 30th-May 16th

## April 16th-20th

*Students will learn about congruence and points, lines, line segments, angles, and rays*

## April 9th-13th

*Students will identify and describe plane and solid figures.*

*New 3rd Grade Skill - combining and subdividing shapes*

Students will be able to put shapes together to create larger shapes. They will also be able to take shapes apart to create smaller, individual shapes.

Students will be able to put shapes together to create larger shapes. They will also be able to take shapes apart to create smaller, individual shapes.

CSAs begin on Thursday, March 22nd -- the math CSA is on Tuesday, March 27th

## March 19th-23rd

*Students will understand how to read a scale to find an object's mass/weight.*

## March 12th-16th

*Students will be able to find the area and perimeter of various shapes.*

## March 5th-9th

*Students will understand length measurement. They will be able to measure to the nearest centimeter, half inch, and inch.*

## February 26th-March 2nd

*Students will understand that probability is the chance that something will happen.*

Students also need to be able to determine possible combinations and list them. For example, students may have the clothing above to combine. They will need to list the combinations:

orange shirt -- grey pants -- brown shoes

orange shirt -- grey pants -- blue shoes

orange shirt -- blue pants -- brown shoes

orange shirt -- blue pants -- blue shoes

and so on... they will also use the formula shirts x pants x shoes to find the number of combinations. 3 shirts x 2 pants x 2 shoes = 12 combinations (3x2x2 = 12)

orange shirt -- grey pants -- brown shoes

orange shirt -- grey pants -- blue shoes

orange shirt -- blue pants -- brown shoes

orange shirt -- blue pants -- blue shoes

and so on... they will also use the formula shirts x pants x shoes to find the number of combinations. 3 shirts x 2 pants x 2 shoes = 12 combinations (3x2x2 = 12)

## Dress up for the 100th day of school on __Tuesday, February 20th__ -- ideas here and here

## February 19th-23rd

*Students will be able to add and subtract fractions with like denominators AND change improper fractions into mixed numbers.*

We show students to change an improper fraction into a mixed number by creating a shape with the number of equal parts as the denominator (below it is 3). They then shade in the number of parts as the numerator indicates (below it is 7). They can then count up how many WHOLE shapes they colored in (below it is 2), that is the whole number. The last shape gives the fractional part (below it is 1/3).

## February 12th-16th

*Students will be able to add and subtract fractions with like denominators.*

## February 5th-9th

*Students will be able to compare fractions using the symbols for greater than, less than, or equal to (> < =)*

## January 29th-February 2nd

*Students will be able to identify, label, and recognize basic fractions.*

## ~THIRD QUARTER~

## The math CSA will be given on Thursday, January 25th ** Girls on the Run registration begins on February 5th

## January 16th-19th

*Students will be able to count and compare different amounts of money.*

*Please do homework night by night -- if we get any snow, days missed will carry over into next week**

## January 2nd-5th

Students will be able to tell time to the nearest minute on an analog clock and will be able to give elapsed time by the hour.

## December 11th-15th

*Students will be able to recognize and extend numeric patterns.*

**Numerical patterns**- will be seen in two different ways (see above pictures). Numerical patterns are patterns using numbers.

**Geometric patterns**- are patterns using shapes.

## December 4th-8th

*Students will be able to multiply 2-digit by 1-digit numbers using models*

The illustration below shows how to use arrays to multiply 1 digit by 2 digits. The problem below is showing 27 x 5.

## November 27th-December 1st

*Students will be able to divide using number lines and equal groups.*

This graphic shows division as equal groups.

The student would draw 3 circles and then distribute 12 stars one at a time into each circle until they run out. The end result is as shown... 4 stars in each group.

The student would draw 3 circles and then distribute 12 stars one at a time into each circle until they run out. The end result is as shown... 4 stars in each group.

The number line shows the basic division problem 24 divided by 3 equals 8.

The student starts at 24 and counts back by 3's until they reach zero. They then connect the 3's by jumping from each with an arrow. Counting the jumps gives you the quotient/answer.
