The Mustang Stampede
Third grade news for the month of January.
In Math we will begin an integrated problem solving unit, where students will need to reason through problem situations and decide which operation is needed to solve it. Students are encouraged to be able to solve all problems in more than one way, so as your student works on homework problems, check to see if he/she can do it a different way.
This link details the CSISD Math curriculum, including scheduled dates for each course of study. Please keep in mind that the math teachers use this curriculum calendar as a guide and specific dates are available from your child's math teacher.
Here are links to some of the programs we use regularly in class.
