Third Grade Math Investigations Learning Target / Learning Goals:


Unit 1: Addition and Subtraction Strategies

Learning Target: Implement a variety of strategies to add and subtract two and three digits in their everyday lives.

Essential Question: What does it look like to solve an addition/subtraction problem using the different strategies taught?

Learning Goals:

  • Teacher will give Pre and Post data to measure student success.

  • Students will learn to break apart problems – by place value.

  • Students will learn to Borrow / Carry method.

  • Students will learn to use a number line to add/subtract.

  • Students will learn to add up by tens.




Unit 2: Data Analysis

Learning Target: Collect, organize, graph and analyze given data.

Essential Question: What does it look like to read and interpret data on a graph?

Learning Goals:

  • Students will collect data as a whole group.

  • Students will categorize data (first lessons of unit #2 starts).

  • Students will learn the attributes of graphs (title, x-axis, y-axis, key, starting w/ 0)

  • Students will graph data using line, bar and pictograph
  • Students will analyze data using the vocabulary terms, “more than, less than, most, least, same, about the same”.


Unit 3: Addition and Subtraction Strategies with Word Problems

Learning Target: Solving word problems using addition/subtraction strategies from Unit #1

Essential Question: How do you identify what the word problem is asking prior to solving it?

Learning Goals:

  • Students will identify “key” words to understand what the word problem is asking for example: “how many more, how many left, how many in all, altogether, leftover. “

  • Students will comparing collections of “how many more”

  • Students will be able to solve travel word problems – read travel problems and solve the difference up to 100 miles.

  • Students will be able to find the differences up to 300.

  • Students will be able to solve story subtraction problems, and discuss/share strategies with partners.




Unit 4: Perimeter and Area

Learning Target: Finding the perimeter and area of any given shape.

Essential Question: How will you determine the perimeter and area by looking at any given shape?

Learning Goals:


  • Students will learn the definitions of perimeter and area.

  • Students will know the structure of perimeter and area, and know the measurement terms (inches, feet, centimeters, yards, and meters)

  • Students will identify and apply strategies of perimeter of any shape.

  • Students will identify and apply strategies of area of any shape.

  • Students will identify quadrilaterals, triangles, squares and rectangles and their attributes.

  • Students will identify right (90 degrees), obtuse (more than 90 degrees) and acute (less than 90 degrees) angles.




Unit 5: Multiplication and Division by Grouping

Learning Target: Understanding the meaning multiplication and division and the relationship between them.

Essential Question: How will you know when to use multiplication or division in a word problem?

Learning Goals:

  • Students will illustrate multiplication situation and write equations based on the numbers and objects in a group. Creating a product. Introduce product (x).

  • Students will be able to skip count (multiples). Example 3, 6,9,12 etc…

  • Students will be able to show and understand what a factor is. Ex: 15 = 3,5

  • Students will be create an array and show the equation.

  • Students will understand what quotient means.
  • Students will be able to split numbers up into equal groups, dividing.
