Grade 3 Mathematics Module 1, Topic A, Overview

Girl in classroom

Lessons in Topic A move students toward understanding familiar repeated addition from Grade 2 in the form of array models, which become a cornerstone of the module. Students use the language of multiplication as they understand what factors are and differentiate between the size of groups and the number of groups within a given context. In this module the factors 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10 provide an entry point for moving into more difficult factors in later modules.
