    • 3.4A solve with fluency one-step and two-step problems involving addition and subtraction within 1,000 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and the relationship between addition and subtraction; – R RC2
    • 2.9D determine the length of an object to the nearest marked unit using rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, or measuring tapes
    • 3.4B round to the nearest 10 or 100 or use compatible numbers to estimate solutions to addition and subtraction problems; – S RC2
    • 3.5A represent one- and two-step problems involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers to 1,000 using pictorial models, number lines, and equations; – R RC2
    • 3.8A summarize a data set with multiple categories using a frequency table, dot plot, pictograph, or bar graph with scaled intervals; and – R RC4

Measuring Intervals of Time

  • 3.7C determine the solutions to problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes using pictorial models or tools such as a 15-minute event plus a 30-minute event equals 45 minutes; – S RC3 [including relationships between minutes and hours]
    • 3.5A represent one- and two-step problems involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers to 1,000 using pictorial models, number lines, and equations; – R RC2

Measuring Liquid Volume and Capacity and Weight

  • 3.7E determine liquid volume (capacity) or weight using appropriate units and tools. – S RC3
    • 3.7D determine when it is appropriate to use measurements of liquid volume (capacity) or weight; – S RC3
    • 3.4A solve with fluency one-step and two-step problems involving addition and subtraction within 1,000 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and the relationship between addition and subtraction; – R RC2
    • 3.4K solve one-step and two-step problems involving multiplication and division within 100 using strategies based on objects; pictorial models, including arrays, area models, and equal groups; properties of operations; or recall of facts. – R RC2
    • 3.7A represent fractions of halves, fourths, and eighths as distances from zero on a number line; – S RC1 [recognizing the intervals on the scales of measurement tools]

Classify 2-D and 3-D Figures

  • 3.6A classify and sort two- and three-dimensional figures, including cones, cylinders, spheres, triangular and rectangular prisms, and cubes, based on attributes using formal geometric language; – R RC3
    • 3.6B use attributes to recognize rhombuses, parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories; – S RC3

Measuring Area of Rectangles with Unit Squares (Connecting Multiplication – no formula)

  • 3.6C determine the area of rectangles with whole number side lengths in problems using multiplication related to the number of rows times the number of unit squares in each row; – R RC3
