Year 3 Maths Tutoring
Overall, students expand their knowledge of whole numbers, fractions and decimals and improve on previous capabilities by using these numbers with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
For multiplication and subtraction, year 3 maths skills include finding multiples and squares of numbers e.g. the square of 2 is 4 and dealing with remainders in simple division problems. Maths in year 3 also involves learning to write and work with fractions whose denominators are 2, 4, 5, 8, 10 and 100. Year 3 is also when students will learn about equivalence between fractions as well as write and compare decimals up to 2 decimal places.
Another common challenge around this grade level is teaching students to seek understanding rather than rote learning content. It is important to start focusing on this at an early age otherwise students tend to develop a “rule dependency” approach to mathematics.
