Year 3 Mathematics



Understanding includes connecting number representations with number sequences, partitioning and combining numbers flexibly, representing unit fractions, using appropriate language to communicate times, and identifying environmental symmetry.

Fluency includes recalling multiplication facts, using familiar metric units to order and compare objects, identifying and describing outcomes of chance experiments, interpreting maps and communicating positions.

Problem Solving includes formulating and modelling authentic situations involving planning methods of data collection and representation, making models of three-dimensional objects and using number properties to continue number patterns.

Reasoning includes using generalising from number properties and results of calculations, comparing angles, creating and interpreting variations in the results of data collections and data displays.

Achievement Standard

By the end of the year students are expected to:

  • recognise the connection between addition and subtraction and solve problems using efficient strategies for multiplication;
  • model and represent unit fractions;
  • represent money values in various ways;
  • identify symmetry in the environment;
  • match positions on maps with given information;
  • recognise angles in real situations;
  • interpret and compare data displays;
  • count to and from 10 000;
  • classify numbers as either odd or even;
  • recall addition and multiplication facts for single digit numbers;
  • correctly count out change from financial transactions;
  • continue number patterns involving addition and subtraction;
  • use metric units for length, mass and capacity;
