Description: This 25-day module builds directly on students' work with multiplication and division in Module 1. At this point, Module 1 instruction coupled with fluency practice in Module 2 has students well on their way to meeting the Grade 3 fluency expectation for multiplying and dividing within 100. Module 3 extends the study of factors from 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10 to include all units from 0 to 10, as well as multiples of 10 within 100. Similar to the organization of Module 1, the introduction of new factors in Module 3 spreads across topics. Topic A begins by revisiting the commutative property. Topic B introduces units of 6 and 7, factors that are well suited to Level 2 skip-counting strategies and to the Level 3 distributive property strategy, already familiar from Module 1. Students learn to compose up to and then over the next ten. Topic B's final lesson emphasizes word problems, providing opportunities to analyze and model. Topic C anticipates the formal introduction of the associative property with a lesson focused on making use of structure to problem solve.
