3rd Grade Math Learning

At Third Grade, children enjoy exploring Math with fun Math activities and games. Children will enjoy completing these Math games and Free 3rd Grade Math worksheets whilst learning at the same time.

During Third Grade, the Math work extends to place value up to 10,000. By the end of 3rd grade, most children should be able to add and subtract numbers to 100 mentally, know their multiplication tables up to 10 x 10, and make simple estimates. They are able to multiply and divide at a basic level, and can solve multiplication and division problems.

They have also developed an understanding of negative numbers, and can find fractions of shapes and locate different fractions on a number line.

These free printable Third Grade Math Games, and other free Grade 3 Math Worksheets will help your child to achieve their Elementary Math benchmark set out by Achieve, Inc.

In the UK, 3rd Grade is equivalent to Year 4.

Multiplication Word Problem Worksheets for 3rd Graders

Here you will find a range of problem solving worksheets involving multiplication.

There are 3 levels of difficulty for each worksheet below: A,B and C.

Worksheet A is the easiest level, suitable for children at the beginning of their grade.

Worksheet B is a medium level worksheets for children who are working at the expected level in their grade.

Worksheet C is set at a harder level, suitable for children who are more able mathematicians.

The problems in each worksheet are similar in wording, but the numbers involved become trickier as the level gets harder.

  • apply their multiplication and times tables skills at a 3rd grade level;
  • apply their times table knowledge to work out related facts;
  • recognise multiplication problems, and try to spot 'trick' problems;
  • solve a range of 'real life' problems.

Some of the sheets have a UK version with spelling set for the UK.
