Instructions:



The above worksheets cover all the strands in the Grade 3 mathematics curriculum. These resources are part of a book written by Ray Mirshahi in 1998 and 1999. They are packed with well designed multiple choice questions. All have extensively been used and tested in a few classrooms with great results. The exercises can be used to introduce concepts in mathematics, as pre-tests or summative assessments. Sometimes questions are broken down into steps that help the students understand them better, encouraging them to develop similar problem-solving strategies when working independently. More resources will be added as extensions to allow the students to explain their thinking and show their strategies. Teachers can also ask the students to show their work even on multiple choice questions therefore justifying their answer.
