3rd Grade Multiplication Problems

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

Each sheet involves solving a range of written multiplication problems.

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.

To encourage careful checking and thinking skills, each sheet includes one 'trick' question which is not a multiplication problem. Children need to spot this word problem, and work out which operation they need to solve it.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • 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.
