Common Core Mathematics is the most comprehensive Common Core State Standardsbased mathematics curriculum available today.The modules are sequenced and paced to support the teaching of mathematics as an unfolding story that follows the logic of mathematics itself.They embody the instructional “shifts” and the standards for mathematical practice that are fundamental to the CCSS.Each module contains a sequence of lessons that combine conceptual understanding, fluency, and application to meet the demands of each topic in the module.Formative assessments are included to support datadriven instruction.The modules are written by teams of master teachers and mathematicians.With Common Core Mathematics, third graders learn about (1) developing understanding of multiplication and division and strategies for multiplication and division within 100; (2) developing understanding of fractions, especially unit fractions (fractions with numerator 1); (3) developing understanding of the structure of rectangular arrays and of area; and (4) describing and analyzing twodimensional shapes.Common Core Learning Standards Addressed in Grade 3, Module 3: 3.OA.3, 3.OA.4, 3.OA.5, 3.OA.7, 3.OA.8, 3.OA.9, 3.NBT.3SEQUENCE OF GRADE 3 MODULESModule 1: Properties of Multiplication and Division and Solving Problems with Units of 2–5 and 10Module 2: Place Value and Problem Solving with Units of MeasureModule 3: Multiplication and Division with Units of 0, 1, 69, and Multiples of 10Module 4: Multiplication and AreaModule 5: Fractions as Numbers on the Number LineModule 6: Collecting and Displaying DataModule 7: Geometry and Measurement Word ProblemsCommon Core (www.commoncore.org) is a nonprofit organization formed in 2007 to advocate for a contentrich liberal arts education in America’s K12 schools
To improve education in America, Common Core creates curriculum materials and also promotes programs, policies, and initiatives at the local, state, and federal levels that provide students with challenging, rigorous instruction in the full range of liberal arts and sciences. Common Core is not affiliated with the Common Core State Standards Initiative.GRADE OVERVIEWS, GUIDANCE ON HOW TO IMPLEMENT COMMON CORE MATHEMATICS, MATH TOOLS, AND MORE, CAN BE FOUND AT www.commoncore.org
