as learners come to grips with the dynamics of group work
Children’s social skills mature as they take on the dynamics of group work and are able to complete a finished product or a goal. At the same time, teachers expect students at this age to become more independent problem solvers, and by the end of third grade, children are equipped to work in crews or independently. Students continue to build their number sense and learn to apply these skills to solve increasingly complex problems found in the classroom and the world around them, and they learn to communicate their mathematical thinking through drawing, writing, and conversing.
