Strand: MEASUREMENT AND DATA (3.MD)

Solve problems involving measurement and estimation of intervals of time, liquid volumes, and masses of objects. (Standards 1–2). Represent and interpret data (Standards 3.MD.3– 4). Understand concepts of area and relate area to multiplication and addition (Standards 3.MD.5–7). Recognize perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguish between linear and area measures (Standard 3.MD.8).

Standard 3.MD.2

Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), milliliters (ml), and liters (l). (Excludes compound units such as cubic centimeters [cc or cm3] and finding the geometric volume of a container.) Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses of objects or volumes of liquids that are given in the same units, for example, by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem. (Excludes multiplicative comparison problems.)

• Grade 3 Unit 6: Measurement (Georgia Standards)
In this unit students will tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve elapsed time, including word problems, by using a number line diagram and reason about the units of mass and liquid volume.
• How Heavy?
In this activity students measure the weight of various objects using a balance scale and cubes and record the results.
• Measurement and Data (3.MD) - Third Grade Core Guide
The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and educators around the state of Utah developed these guides for Third Grade Mathematics - Measurement and Data (3.MD)
