Textbook & Materials: Math Mammoth Grade 3 complete

Here is a list of manipulatives that are needed or recommended for grade 3. Measuring tapes, scales, and measuring cups are only used in the measuring chapter.

An old-fashioned alarm clock or other analog clock where you can turn the minute hand and the hour hand will turn as it is supposed to (optional; for 3-A). 

A ruler that measures in inches (for 3-B). A ruler that measures in centimeters (for 3-B).

A measuring tape that measures in feet (for 3-B). A measuring tape that measures in meters (for 3-B).

kitchen scale that measures in ounces (for 3-B). A kitchen scale that measures in grams (for 3-B).

A measuring cup that measures 1 cup (for 3-B), a pint jar, and a quart jar. A measuring cup that measures in milliliters (for 3-B).

Fraction manipulatives. The curriculum contains printables to make your own fraction manipulatives. The text uses visual pie models extensively, and students even learn to draw them themselves for the exercises, therefore making or buying the manipulatives is entirely optional (optional; for 3-B).

Summary: Third grade is a time for learning and mastering two (mostly new) operations: multiplication and division within 100. The student also deepens his understanding of addition and subtraction, and uses those in many different contexts, such as with money, time, and geometry.
