Current 3rd grade students should complete the following priority digital lessons. Resources for teachers, tutors, and caregivers to use alongside each lesson are also available.

Multiply and Divide Tricky Numbers

21 Lessons | Grade 3 Mission 3

This Mission extends multiplication and division to all factors between 0 and 10. Students work deeply with the commutative, distributive, and associative properties, and they’ll have problem-solving opportunities at the close of each topic.

Fractions as Numbers

29 Lessons | Grade 3 Mission 5

This Mission builds a deep understanding of fractions as a single number. Students begin concretely interacting with fractions by folding strips of paper to create equal parts. By the end of the Mission, students will be able to evaluate equivalence and compare size pictorially.

If students complete the Intensive Series, current 3rd graders should also complete: 

Multiply and Divide Friendly Numbers

21 Lessons | Grade 3 Mission 1

This Mission introduces multiplication and division with friendly numbers, 2–5 and 10. Students move gradually from skip-counting and arrays to using the distributive property as a strategy for multiplying and dividing larger factors.


What instructional content is covered in each digital lesson?

Digital lessons follow the scope and sequence of Eureka Math/EngageNY. They include fluency, concept development, and independent practice. Digital lessons received a top-rating from EdReports.org and are aligned to state standards.

I am tutoring kids in a summer program. Can I use this content? 

Summer Intensive Series can be used for summer school, tutoring programs, or targeted interventions. We also offer materials that tutors or teachers can use to facilitate rich math discussions around the core ideas of each Intensive Series.  

My child is new to Zearn Math. Can I use at home as a parent? 

As a nonprofit, our instructional materials are free for families and kids. Our Parent/Caregiver supports offer the information you need to create an account for yourself and your child, help your child log in to their account, and orient them to Zearn Math Digital Lessons, so they can begin learning with Zearn Math at home.

How much time does each digital lesson take?

Each digital lesson takes about 30 minutes to complete. Kids work through each component at their own pace. After completing one lesson, they automatically go on to the next lesson.

How effective are digital lessons?

Studies show that completing three Zearn Math lessons weekly alongside daily instruction leads to learning gains equivalent to 140 days of additional instructional days a year. Our materials qualify for newly released Federal ESSER funding.
