  • investigate the conditions required for a number to be odd or even and identify odd and even numbers
  • recognise and explain the connection between addition and subtraction

  • partition areas, lengths and collections to create halves, thirds, quarters and fifths
  • locate unit fractions on a number line
  • measure, order and compare objects using familiar metric units of length, mass and capacity
  • tell time to the minute and investigate the relationship between units of time
  • recognise there are 60 minutes in an hour and 60 seconds in a minute
  • make models of three-dimensional objects and describe key features
  • explore the creation of three-dimensional objects using origami, including prisms and pyramids
  • create and interpret simple grid maps to show position and pathways
  • identify symmetry in the environment
  • identify angles as measures of turn and compare angle sizes in everyday situations
  • represent money values in multiple ways and count the change required for simple transactions to the nearest five cents
  • recognising the relationship between dollars and cents, and that not all countries use these denominations and divisions
  • conduct chance experiments, identify and describe possible outcomes and recognise variation in results
  • identify questions or issues for categorical variables.
  • identify data sources and plan methods of data collection and recording
  • collect data, organise into categories and create displays using lists, tables, picture graphs and simple column graphs
  • interpret and compare data displays

Please note: is mainly based around the US Elementary school math standards. It is a site which has been designed for students in the US to learn, practice and improve their math skills.

Though the links on this page are all designed primarily for students in the US, they are also at the correct level and standard for Australian students.

One of the issues you may notice is that some of the spelling may be different as our site and corresponding worksheets use US spelling.

Year 3 is generally equivalent to 3rd Grade in the US.

The learning outcomes on this page have been taken from the Australian Education Curriculum Website
