** **Third Grade Mathematics

**This year our class is using the Houghton Mifflin Mathematics textbook. The emphasis is on standards-based content. Developed to meet the goals and objectives of the California Mathematics Content Standards, our curriculum prepares students for the math challenges of tomorrow. Just like in reading, now that students have developed some proficiency in basic math skills, we now start to apply those skills. Students become better problem solvers as they learn to apply their reading skills and the process of reasoning to solve problems.**
