## Third Grade Problem-Solving Activities and Exercises

- /

It's important for kids to learn problem-solving skills because they'll use them in various school subjects, as well as in life in general. Keep reading for sample activities and exercises that you and your child can do at home to improve his or her problem-solving skills.

## What Types of Activities Promote Third Grade Problem-Solving Skills?

Giving your child genuine problems to solve can help him or her to see how schoolwork applies to real life. For example, if you're planning a party, you might have your child use his newly developed skills in multiplication and division to figure out the logistics, such as how many tables and chairs will be needed, based on the number of anticipated guests.

Your child also can apply his or her third-grade math skills during everyday events, like visiting the grocery store. While shopping, you can have your child calculate the price of the items you're purchasing to determine if you're staying within a budget. For instance, would it bust your $18 budget if you bought five boxes of cereal that were priced at $4 a box? Your child could practice his or her multiplication skills by determining that $4 x 5 = $20 and then his or her problem-solving skills by noting that this would, indeed, put you over budget.

Additionally, you might challenge your child to complete fun experiments. For example, you could work with your child to design a container that will protect an egg that's dropping from the top of your house. Your child will have to use creative thinking in order to create a safe container.

## Problem-Solving Exercises and Solutions

1. A room has an area of 400 feet. What are some possible dimensions for this room?

2. Ken has to be at work by 8:30 am. His office is 30 minutes away, and he wants to stop for coffee, which typically takes 10 minutes. What time should Ken leave his house in the morning?

3. There are too many guests at Karla's party. There are 44 people present, but Karla only has 22 pieces of cake. How can Karla give each of her guests a piece of cake?

## What math skills should I teach my third grade class?

The content you teach your third graders will depend on your curriculum and your students’ individual needs.

Generally, students in third grade will deepen their knowledge of operations, place value, measurement and geometry. They may also be introduced to new topics like fractions, multiplication and division.

If you’re teaching using the Common Core curriculum , you will want to provide coverage for the following standards:

Operations and Algebraic Thinking:

- Interpret products and quotients of whole numbers, understanding multiplication as groups and division as equal sharing.
- Use multiplication and division facts within 100 to solve word problems involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities.
- Determine unknown numbers in multiplication or division equations with three whole numbers.
- Apply properties of operations to multiply and divide.
- Understand division as an unknown-factor problem.
- Fluently multiply and divide within 100 using strategies and properties of operations, knowing all products of two one-digit numbers.
- Solve two-step word problems using the four operations, representing them with equations and assessing reasonableness using mental computation and estimation.
- Identify and explain arithmetic patterns using properties of operations.

Number and Operations in Base Ten:

- Use place value when rounding numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.
- Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
- Multiply one-digit whole numbers by multiples of 10 in the range 10-90 using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.

Measurement & Data:

- Tell and write time to the nearest minute and solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, using number line diagrams.
- Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses using standard units (grams, kilograms, liters), and solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes in the same units.
- Draw scaled picture graphs and bar graphs to represent data sets with multiple categories, and solve "how many more" and "how many less" problems using scaled bar graphs.
- Generate measurement data by measuring lengths and create line plots with appropriate units (whole numbers, halves, or quarters).
- Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand the concepts of area measurement.
- Measure areas by counting unit squares and understand the relationship between area, multiplication, and addition.
- Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding perimeter given side lengths, finding unknown side lengths, and comparing rectangles with the same perimeter but different areas or the same area but different perimeters.
- Understand that shapes in different categories can share attributes that define a larger category. Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and identify quadrilaterals that do not belong to these subcategories.
- Partition shapes into equal areas and express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole.

Number and Operations – Fractions:

- Understand fractions as quantities formed by dividing a whole into equal parts.
- Represent fractions on a number line, including with even denominators from 2 to 8.
- Identify and explain equivalent fractions in specific cases.
- Compare fractions by reasoning about their size.

In some situations, like teaching gifted students, you may want to introduce your students to topics seen more commonly in fourth grade. This includes skills like understanding decimals, dividing with remainders and more. Understand more about differentiating your lesson to cater to gifted students here.

Additionally, for teachers wanting support struggling students, you may need to revisit skills learned in second grade. This can include mastering arithmetic skills like skip counting, double-digit addition and handling subtraction word problems and facts.

## How to Teach Kids Problem-Solving Skills

KidStock / Blend Images / Getty Images

- Steps to Follow
- Allow Consequences

Whether your child can't find their math homework or has forgotten their lunch, good problem-solving skills are the key to helping them manage their life.

A 2010 study published in Behaviour Research and Therapy found that kids who lack problem-solving skills may be at a higher risk of depression and suicidality. Additionally, the researchers found that teaching a child problem-solving skills can improve mental health .

You can begin teaching basic problem-solving skills during preschool and help your child sharpen their skills into high school and beyond.

## Why Problem-Solving Skills Matter

Kids face a variety of problems every day, ranging from academic difficulties to problems on the sports field. Yet few of them have a formula for solving those problems.

Kids who lack problem-solving skills may avoid taking action when faced with a problem.

Rather than put their energy into solving the problem, they may invest their time in avoiding the issue. That's why many kids fall behind in school or struggle to maintain friendships .

Other kids who lack problem-solving skills spring into action without recognizing their choices. A child may hit a peer who cuts in front of them in line because they are not sure what else to do.

Or, they may walk out of class when they are being teased because they can't think of any other ways to make it stop. Those impulsive choices may create even bigger problems in the long run.

## The 5 Steps of Problem-Solving

Kids who feel overwhelmed or hopeless often won't attempt to address a problem. But when you give them a clear formula for solving problems, they'll feel more confident in their ability to try. Here are the steps to problem-solving:

- Identify the problem . Just stating the problem out loud can make a big difference for kids who are feeling stuck. Help your child state the problem, such as, "You don't have anyone to play with at recess," or "You aren't sure if you should take the advanced math class."
- Develop at least five possible solutions . Brainstorm possible ways to solve the problem. Emphasize that all the solutions don't necessarily need to be good ideas (at least not at this point). Help your child develop solutions if they are struggling to come up with ideas. Even a silly answer or far-fetched idea is a possible solution. The key is to help them see that with a little creativity, they can find many different potential solutions.
- Identify the pros and cons of each solution . Help your child identify potential positive and negative consequences for each potential solution they identified.
- Pick a solution. Once your child has evaluated the possible positive and negative outcomes, encourage them to pick a solution.
- Test it out . Tell them to try a solution and see what happens. If it doesn't work out, they can always try another solution from the list that they developed in step two.

## Practice Solving Problems

When problems arise, don’t rush to solve your child’s problems for them. Instead, help them walk through the problem-solving steps. Offer guidance when they need assistance, but encourage them to solve problems on their own. If they are unable to come up with a solution, step in and help them think of some. But don't automatically tell them what to do.

When you encounter behavioral issues, use a problem-solving approach. Sit down together and say, "You've been having difficulty getting your homework done lately. Let's problem-solve this together." You might still need to offer a consequence for misbehavior, but make it clear that you're invested in looking for a solution so they can do better next time.

Use a problem-solving approach to help your child become more independent.

If they forgot to pack their soccer cleats for practice, ask, "What can we do to make sure this doesn't happen again?" Let them try to develop some solutions on their own.

Kids often develop creative solutions. So they might say, "I'll write a note and stick it on my door so I'll remember to pack them before I leave," or "I'll pack my bag the night before and I'll keep a checklist to remind me what needs to go in my bag."

Provide plenty of praise when your child practices their problem-solving skills.

## Allow for Natural Consequences

Natural consequences may also teach problem-solving skills. So when it's appropriate, allow your child to face the natural consequences of their action. Just make sure it's safe to do so.

For example, let your teenager spend all of their money during the first 10 minutes you're at an amusement park if that's what they want. Then, let them go for the rest of the day without any spending money.

This can lead to a discussion about problem-solving to help them make a better choice next time. Consider these natural consequences as a teachable moment to help work together on problem-solving.

## 3rd grade math skills: Find out what you need to know for your student

Want to help your third-grader master the basics of 3rd grade math ? Here are some of the skills your child will be learning in the classroom.

## Addition, subtraction, multiplication, & division

Multiplying numbers

Understand what it means to multiply numbers – for example: 5 x 3 can be thought of as the total number of objects in three groups where each group contains five objects – or the total number of objects in five groups where each group contains three objects. Relate the concept of addition to multiplication.

## Parenting Guides 3rd grade math tips: Here's how to help your student

Times table

Know the times table. By the end of third grade, quickly and accurately multiply any one-digit number by any other one-digit number.

Tip: Play math games

Time spent commuting or waiting in a car is a great opportunity to play math games with your child. Multiplication is one of the key math concepts she is working on in school and you can help her practice by asking her simple multiplication problems that relate to real life. Ask her to figure out the number of days until an event three weeks from today. Or have her calculate how many weeks she would have to save her allowance to buy a toy or game she wants.

Multiplication and addition

Use knowledge of addition to understand that 4 x 7 is the same as 4 x 5 + 4 x 2.

Dividing numbers

Understand that dividing numbers can be looked at as separating numbers of objects into equal groups.

The relationship

Understand the relationship between multiplication and division. For example, understand that if 9 x 3 = 27, then 27 ÷ 9 = 3, and 27 ÷ 3 = 9.

## parenting-guides 3rd Grade Parenting Guides

Division with an unknown

Solve division problems involving an unknown – for example, solve 27 ÷ 9 = ? by thinking 9 x ? = 27.

Understanding place value

Use understanding of place value to add, subtract, multiply and divide multi-digit numbers.

Solving word problems

Solve word problems involving multiplication and division of numbers within 100.

The second-grade class and third-grade class were collecting old cell phones to recycle. The third grade class collected 10 old cell phones. The second grade class collected twice (two times) that number. How many cell phones did the second grade class collect?

The second-grade class decided to divide their collected cell phones equally between five different charities. How many phones will each charity get?

Fractions as numbers

Understand fractions as numbers. Using visual models or number lines (example below), understand that two fractions are equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or are on the same point on a number line. For example, 2⁄4 is the same as 1⁄2.

Unit fractions

Understand unit fractions – fractions with one as the numerator (top number): 1⁄2, 1⁄3, 1⁄4 – as one part of a whole when that whole is divided into equal parts.

Tip: Highlight real-life math problems

Continue to find as many opportunities as possible to highlight math problems in real life. If you’re doubling a recipe and need to figure out measurements, enlist your third-grader’s help. Measuring cups provide an especially good opportunity for your child to familiarize herself with the concept of fractions that they are leaning about in school. If a recipe calls for a cup and a half of something, ask them how many 1⁄2 or 1⁄4 cups they would need until they had enough.

Tip: Highlight real-life examples of fractions

Encourage your child to spot real-life uses of fractions, such as menus that describe burgers as quarter-pounders or sports games that are divided into halves. Have them practice fractions by drawing a shape, such as a circle or a square, and asking her to color in 1⁄2 or 3⁄4 of it.

Comparing fractions

Compare two fractions with the same numerator (top number) or the same denominator (bottom number) by thinking about their size, and what the top numbers and bottom numbers represent. For example, understand that 3/4 of something is larger than 3/5 of that same thing, because each fourth is larger than each fifth. Understand that 4/6 of something is larger than 3/6 of that same thing because it has four of the sixths.

Whole numbers

Recognize that a fraction with the same numerator and denominator is the same as one – for example, 2⁄2 = 1 (two halves are the same as one whole). Write whole numbers as fractions – for example, 5⁄(1) is the same as five.

Reading clocks

Read circular “face” clocks and digital clocks to tell time to the nearest minute. Solve word problems requiring addition and subtraction of intervals of time, in minutes. For example: Soccer practice is over at 4:15 p.m. Jose tells your child his mother will pick them up and drop your child off at home in 20 minutes. If they are on time, what time will it be when your child arrives?

## Measurement & data

Mass and volume

Measure and estimate the mass of objects and volume of liquids – in grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l).

Solve word problems involving mass and volume.

Brian has a mass of 85 kilograms. Joe is 9 kilograms lighter than Brian. What is Joe’s mass?

A mug has a volume of 540 milliliters. A cup has a volume of 230 milliliters. What is the total volume of the mug and the cup?

Data on graphs

Represent and interpret data on picture graphs and bar graphs (for example one square represents five pets). Solve one-and two- step word problems using information presented in bar graphs.

Classifying shapes

Use similarities and differences in geometric shapes to categorize, or classify them – for example, recognize that rectangles, squares, and rhombuses all have four sides, which makes them all examples of quadrilaterals (four-sided shapes).

Dividing shapes

Divide shapes into parts with equal sizes. Relate the parts to fractions of the whole.

## Logical reasoning worksheets for Grade 3: Free PDF downloads

Hello, and welcome to this interesting article about logical reasoning worksheets for grade 3 students! In this resource, we will share some free PDF downloads and activities you can use to help your students develop their logical reasoning skills.

Logical reasoning is an essential skill for grade 3 students, as it helps them to solve problems, make decisions, and understand the world around them. Logical reasoning also prepares them for more advanced math and science topics in the future.

Logical reasoning means using facts, rules, and patterns to draw conclusions or make predictions. For example, if you know that all dogs have four legs and see an animal with four legs, you can use logical reasoning to conclude that the animal is a dog.

Logical reasoning also helps you to find missing information or identify errors in reasoning. For example, if you know that 2 + 2 = 4, and someone tells you that 2 + 2 = 5, you can use logical reasoning to spot the mistake.

What topics are covered in the logical reasoning worksheets.

In Mathskills4kids.com, you’ll discover many topics covered in the logical reasoning worksheets for Grade 3: Free PDF downloads . But, in this article, we’ll discuss just six topics related to logical reasoning for grade 3 students. These topics are:

- Guess the number : This topic involves guessing a number based on clues another person gave. For example, if someone tells you that the number is between 10 and 20 and is divisible by 3, you can use logical reasoning to narrow down the possible numbers and guess the correct one.
- Smallest and greatest numbers : This topic involves finding the smallest or greatest number that can be formed by rearranging the digits of a given number. For example, if you are given the numbers 3769 and 9673, you can use logical reasoning to find that the smallest number is 3769 and the greatest number is 9673.
- Find the order : This topic involves finding the order of items based on clues given by another person. For example, if someone tells you that John is taller than Mary and Mary is taller than Tom, you can use logical reasoning to find that John is the tallest, followed by Mary, and then Tom.
- Age puzzles : This topic involves finding a person’s age based on clues from another person. For example, if someone tells you that their age is twice their brother's age, and their brother is 6 years old, you can use logical reasoning to find that their age is 12.
- How to find two numbers based on sum and difference : This topic involves finding two numbers based on their sum and difference . For example, if you know that the sum of two numbers is 10, and their difference is 2, you can use logical reasoning to find that the two numbers are 6 and 4.
- How to find two numbers based on product and quotient : This topic involves finding two numbers based on their product and quotient . For example, if you know that the product of two numbers is 12, and their quotient is 3, you can use logical reasoning to find that the two numbers are 4 and 3.

As said earlier, our logical reasoning worksheets for grade 3 students include the above topics. These worksheets are designed to help your students practice and improve their logical reasoning skills in a fun and engaging way.

## No Series: Persistence in Problem Solving

Common core State Standards

- Math: Math
- Practice: Mathematical Practice Standards
- MP1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, \"Does this make sense?\" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.

- How does the graphic organizer help scaffold problem solving for students? The graphic organizer help students problem solve independenly in as many ways while arriving at the same answer.
- Why does Ms. Saul choose to have students work alone without help? Student lead solution allows student to do work in their own way. and work with other students to see how thwy were able to resolve a solution to the answer.
- How do "Heads Together Butts Up" and "Student-led Solutions" contribute to the class culture around problem solving? Stud with the answer. They can w theowexplain. They come to the from and demonstrate without teacher telling them how to come up with the results.

Persistence in Problem Solving is challenging!

Athena Morris Mar 15, 2020 2:14pm

The video I chose was Persistence in Problem Solving. I think this video relates to the Math: Making Sense of Word Problems Mirco-Credential because it was a good example of a teacher giving a word problem that the students could relate to and then having them find 3 ways to solve the problem. This allowed for the student to make sense of the problem in their own way, which would give them an opportunity to use different strategies. The teacher allowed for individual time to solve (4 minutes) and then collaboration time, which would help to build their confidence and at the same time learn from another student. After their group/partner discussion they came together as a class for 3 students to show their work and how they solved the problem.

The demonstrated approach was really good. I love the phrase the teacher used, "heads together butts up." I usually just say, "turn and talk with your face/shoulder partner." I think I will incorporate that term into my room. I usally have two groups/students come to the board/projector to display their work, but I like the 3 group/student approach better, so I will incorporate that too. I will look online for the Find 3 Ways paper or create one myself. I don't have any concerns with trying to integrate this approach into my classroom and I am looking forward to trying something new. I think this will lead to improved learning outcomes because instead of just one way of solving a word problem they will have three ways. Also, it will be something new for them to try and they love trying new things!

Classroom Close Up: 3rd Grade Math: Persistence in Problem Solving with Jennifer Saul

[01:00:07;10] Jennifer: "Is it OK to make mistakes?

All: "YES!"

Jennifer: "So, you just fix them and learn from them. Mistakes are easy to fix."

Establishing a strong classroom culture is essential. You have to normalize error. They have to know that it's OK to try, and try, and try again. We want them to wrestle with a problem, and to stay with it. So, we came up with Find Three Ways.

Hopefully, this activity helps them take ownership for their own learning.

"OK I need some more help."

So, at the beginning, I present them with a problem, and really appeal to their sense of empathy.

"I need your help figuring out for four hungry teachers, is my $20.00 enough to buy four burritos and, if it is enough, do I have any left over to maybe get sodas? You're going to try to find three different ways to solve the problem."

Once the problem's been recorded on the board, they are sent back to their seats, with their record sheet. One side has areas where they can do work, and ideas for strategies to use. And, the backside's purposefully left blank. So, they have a lot of freedom.

"Remember our initial tackling and wrestling with this problem is independent work."

They have four minutes to wrestle with the problem independently, and to try to solve it as many ways as they can think of.

"What did you do? Oh, from your table?"

If they can solve it three ways, and arrive at the same answer three times, that would help with their confidence level. They can assure themselves and don't have to wait for the teacher to come around, and say "Yep, you got it."

"OK...discuss with your table."

And then, we do what's called "Heads Together, Butts Up!" We want their heads together, showing each other what they were successful with, maybe others who need support, or didn't know where to go with it, can get an idea.

Sara: "How did you get this answer? I got it by adding this."

Lisette: "I got it by adding four and four, and adding twelve and twelve."

Sara: "OK."

Jennifer: They're allowed to copy each other's notes as long as they're having the discussion about why something was done in a particular way. It's a chance for them to practice using the language, and have discourse over what they're doing.

During that whole time, I try to rotate around the room, offer support. And, so I'll have in my mind, who I would like coming up to the front of the class, and sharing their work.

"Show me learning positions please."

They turn to the front of the room, and three students are called up, and I use my document camera and they can show and explain their work.

Carlos: "Then I added the ones, 1,2,3,4."

Establan: "Then I multiplied the four and the four, equals 16."

Sara: "First, I made a table. In the first two boxes, I put the teachers and amount."

Jennifer: Having a student-led solution enhances our culture of learning as a class. It's not me dictating how they should get to a particular result. It allows them to choose their own path, but it also opens up doors for consulting with each other, and collaboration, which are life skills that everybody needs.
