(Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)*

**Solve problems involving measurement and estimation of intervals of time, liquid volumes, and masses of objects.**

*Math.3.MD.A.2*: Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l).(Excludes compound units such as cm3 and finding the geometric volume of a container) Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.(Excludes multiplicative comparison problems (problems involving notions of "times as much").

**Represent and interpret data.**

*Math.3.MD.B.3*: Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. *For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets*.

**Represent and interpret data.**

*Math.3.MD.B.4*: Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units— whole numbers, halves, or quarters.

**Geometric measurement: recognize perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguish between linear and area measures.**

*Math.3.MD.D.8*: Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.

**Reason with shapes and their attributes.**

*Math.3.G.A.2*: Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. *For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape*.

**Reason with shapes and their attributes.**

*Math.3.G.A.1*: Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
