(see MST standards under Previous Standard Versions) 



















Emphasis: MStandard  3.OA.1:
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 * 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 * 7. 
Emphasis: MStandard  3.OA.2:
Interpret wholenumber quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 / 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 / 8. 
Emphasis: MEStandard  3.OA.3:
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem. 
Emphasis: MStandard  3.OA.4:
Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 * ? = 48, 5 = / 3, 6 * 6 = ?.



Emphasis: MStandard  3.OA.5:
Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.2 Examples: If 6 * 4 = 24 is known, then 4 * 6 = 24 is also known. (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.) 
Emphasis: MStandard  3.OA.6:
Understand division as an unknownfactor problem. For example, find 32 / 8 by finding the number that makes 32 when multiplied by 8.



Emphasis: MStandard  3.OA.7:
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 * 5 = 40, one knows 40 / 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two onedigit numbers.



Emphasis: MEStandard  3.OA.8:
Solve twostep word problems using the four operations. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding. 
Emphasis: MStandard  3.OA.9:
Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.
