Math Mammoth Add & Subtract 3


Math Mammoth Add and Subtract 3 has to do with adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. The book is suitable to study after the student has learned to add and subtract with 2-digit numbers, and has learned numbers till 1,000. The goal is to teach the student to add and subtract both mentally and in columns within 0-1000.

The PDF version of this book is enabled for annotation. This means that if you prefer, your student can fill it in on the computer, using the typewriter and drawing tools in Adobe Reader version 9 or greater.

Since students usually learn three-digit numbers in second grade, some of the topics in this book suit second grade, some suit third grade.

The first section of the book explores some mental math with three-digit numbers, and is suitable for second grade. We study adding and subtracting whole hundreds, whole tens, and ones within 0-1000, often comparing to similar problems within 0-100. In most of these lessons, the addition or subtraction is first illustrated with a visual model. You can use manipulatives instead, if you prefer.

The next part (the middle part) deals with adding and subtracting in columns with regrouping. If you want to follow the grade levels, these lessons are intended for both second and third grade this way: the lessons are for second grade, until the topics of regrouping twice in subtraction and regrouping over zero tens in subtraction, which are for third grade.

The processes of regrouping in addition and subtraction are first practiced using visual models, to ensure the student understands the concept (the "why"), and does not only learn the procedure (the "how").

Regrouping in subtraction with three-digit numbers includes three different cases:

  1. Regrouping 1 ten as 10 ones, such as is needful for 546 − 229.
  2. Regrouping 1 hundred as 10 tens, such as is needful for 728 − 441.
  3. Regrouping two times (1 ten as 10 ones, and 1 hundred as 10 tens), such as is needful for 725 − 448.
  4. Regrouping with zero tens, such as is needful for 405 − 278. Here, first we regroup 1 hundred as 10 tens, then 1 ten as 10 ones.

In the last section, the book includes addition and subtraction topics for third grade, starting with mental addition and subtraction. Through it all, students solve lots of word problems and practice some algebra in disguise, where they use a symbol or a ? for the unknown thing in the problem. We also study ordinal numbers, rounding and estimating, and order of operations.

Then we study the connection between addition and subtraction with bigger numbers, which also aims to help children think algebraically. Lastly, students get to practice their adding and subtracting skills in a practical way through reading a mileage chart and other types of graphs.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
