Mighty Math is a set of weekly formative assessments that can be used to evaluate progress towards the third grade math Common Core State Standards. This resource contains nine two-sided assessments, with 13 problems on each assessment. These assessments are intended to be used during the first quarter of third grade, although they would be great enrichment for second graders and/or good practice for fourth grade students.
ALL ELEVEN OF THE THIRD GRADE CCSS CLUSTERS ARE ASSESSED EACH WEEK:
3.OA.A: Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division.
3.OA.B: Understand properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division.
3.OA.C: Multiply and divide within 100.
--- one problem for each multiplication and division
3.OA.D: Solve problems involving the four operations, and identify and explain patterns in arithmetic.
3.NBT.A: Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.
3.NF.A: Develop understanding of fractions as numbers.
3.MD.A: Solve problems involving measurement and estimation.
--- one problem for each telling time and measuring liquid volume & mass
3.MD.B: Represent and interpret data.
3.MD.C: Geometric measurement: understand concepts of area and relate area to multiplication and to addition.
3.MD.D: Geometric measurement: recognize perimeter
3.G.A: Reason with shapes and their attributes.
This resource also includes answer keys and three different options for recording student data.
HOW I USE THESE ASSESSMENTS IN MY CLASSROOM
I use Mighty Math as formative assessments to drive my instruction and reteach concepts as necessary. Every week, I have a shortened math period (50 minutes) due to my specials schedule. This is my Mighty Math Day. First, students complete their Mighty Math assessment. When students finish, they bring their page to me to spot check. I’ll glance it over and make sure they didn’t miss anything. I also make an informal tally chart of problems that I notice many kids struggled with. Then, students work independently on unfinished Math Journal pages from previous days or Compass Learning Odyssey (differentiated math website). When most students are finished, I will pull groups of students who struggled with specific skills on the previous week’s Mighty Math for reteaching and practice. I will also conduct whole-group reteaching on those problems that were difficult from the current week.
