Math Facts In Third Grade

Look for Math Fact Practice Homework everynight - Monday through Thursday! This should only take a few minutes and they need to have someone at home check over their paper and return it signed the next day. Just because they finish their Fact Practice Homework sheet, I still encourage you to ask your child Math Facts randomly at home, esp. when we start learning multiplication and division facts. Flashcards are also a good method to help with memorization. Addition and Subtraction Facts should already be memorized by the time they get to third grade.

Thanks for your help on this.


Addition and Subtraction Facts should become more automatic for your child. Instead of having to "count" or "adding on" we are hoping the more common facts are just memorized - they must know their Sums of 10 and Double Facts to help with upper level thinking. Below are some sites to help your child with addition and subtraction facts.
