We know you've been rocking through 2nd grade adding and subtracting all kinds of whole numbers. (up to 2 digits, right?). That's awesome! In 3rd grade math we want you to start using bigger numbers and start multiplying and dividing, too. By the way, did you know that some numbers aren’t actually “whole?” They’re “partially whole.” We call them fractions! We want you to start playing around and having fun with those, too. There's also area, perimeter, and place value to be discovered. Whew. We have so much to do and can't wait to do it with you. Let's go!

# Measurement and geometry

In 2nd grade, you learned to measure lengths. Now we can measure the length around the edge of an object (perimeter) and how much "space" something takes up on a flat surface (area).

## Area

Area is how we think about how much space something takes in two dimensions, such as comparing how much land one property takes up versus another. In this tutorial, we'll take a conceptual look at how area is actually measured (especially for rectangles).

## Perimeter

Have you ever wondered how much fencing you need to surround a plot of land? No? Well, you should still go through this tutorial just in case. You'll learn all about how to think about and calculate perimeter--essentially the length of the boundary of a figure.

## Telling time

Solve word problems involving time. Use number lines, digital clocks, and analog clocks.

## Data

Read and interpret bar graphs and picture graphs. Also, make some graphs of your own!

## Mass and volume

Estimate the volume and mass of items. Solve word problems involving mass and volume.

## Shapes

Classify quadrilaterals, including rectangles, rhombuses, and squares. See what attributes they have in common and which ones make them unique.
