Standard Area  TECH: Learning Standards for Technology
(see MST standards under Previous Standard Versions) 



















Emphasis: MStandard  3.MD.6:
Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units). 

Component  3.MD.7.a:
Find the area of a rectangle with wholenumber side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths. 
Component  3.MD.7.b:
Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent wholenumber products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning. 
Component  3.MD.7.c:
Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with wholenumber side lengths a and b + c is the sum of a * b and a * c. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning. 
Component  3.MD.7.d:
Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into nonoverlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the nonoverlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
