Math (TAG): Measurement – Liquid Volume, Weight, and Time

Suggested Time Frame: 18 Instructional Days


Focus TEKS

Measuring Liquid Volume 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]
  • 4.8A  identify relative sizes of measurement units within the customary and metric systems S [only work on capacity and volume units in this unit]

Time Intervals and Elapsed 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
  • 4.8C solve problems that deal with measurements of length, intervals of time, liquid volumes, mass, and money using addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division as appropriate. [elapsed time] R
Computational Fluency TEKS

Multiplication and Division Facts; Two-digit Multiplication Computation and Representation

  • 3.4F recall facts to multiply up to 10 by 10 with automaticity and recall the corresponding division facts. S
  • 3.4G use strategies and algorithms, including the standard algorithm, to multiply a two-digit number by a one-digit number. Strategies may include mental math, partial products, and the commutative, associative, and distributive properties; – S RC2
  • 4.4B determine products of a number and 10 or 100 using properties of operations and place value understandings S
  • 4.4C represent the product of 2 two-digit numbers using arrays, area models, or equations, including perfect squares through 15 by 15 S
