3rd Grade Daily Computational Math Spiral Review Homework Practice
Why Computational Fluency?
NCTM defines computational fluency as having efficient, flexible and accurate methods for computing. Students need to be fluent in mental math, paper and pencil methods and using technology such as a calculator in computing answers to situations involving numbers .
What About Problem Solving?
If students are fluent in basic computational skills, they are free to focus on other important parts of a problem.
What About Rigor?
Rigor depends on the DOK level that students are able to be successful. For some students level 1 and/or 2 are rigorous enough. For other students they need DOK level 3 and 4, because they are ready for the rigor.
For students to be able to answer questions at a level 3 or 4, they must be successful with level 1 and 2. The ability to be able to solve these problems fluently. This is why computational fluency is so important.
1st Quarter is a review of 2nd grade. Why? We can’t expect students to be able to practice 3rd grade skills right from the beginning of the year.
The Common Core State Standards were used to create the curriculum because even though not all states use CCSS, the majority of math curriculums match up with CCSS.
Standards addressed during 1st Quarter:
Add and Subtract within 100
Add up to four two-digit numbers
Add and Subtract within 1000
The set up:
Each week uses the same exact format. Students practice 10 different problems each day. At the end of the week, students are asked to reflect on what they did well, and what they can improve on. See the preview for detailed description.
• Nine weeks of review
• Print front to back, means it’s only one page
• Answer keys are included
• 100% editable in PowerPoint
• PDF version is also included
How to use
These practice pages are perfect for a daily spiral review! Assign these as morning work, homework, or as a part of your math workshop routine.
