`Home » Primary 3 Scheme of Work » Primary 3 Mathematics Scheme of Work`

Primary 3 Mathematics is a continuation of primary 2 Mathematics, the topics are almost the same but they will be taught with a wider range of numbers from 1-1000. And they will be expected to solve more complex questions. In this class, the pupils will be taught how to solve those basic mathematical problems with a higher number.

Primary 3 Mathematics is divided into three sections; Numbers, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics. Topics such as whole numbers, place value of numbers, fractions, open sentences, money, shopping, length, perimeter, shapes, time, weight, everyday statistics etc.

By the end of the academic session, the educators should make sure the pupils can; compare and order numbers from 1-1000, determine the place value of numbers up to 1000, Complete the number patterns etc.
