- 3.MD.A.1Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.
- 3.MD.A.2Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). 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.

How Time Flies

3rd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Going Batty Over Measurement and Geometry

Big Idea:Telling time is not enough. Students need to understand and apply strategies to solve elapsed time situations that are real world. This knowledge is essential in creating a deep understanding of using clocks as a tool to measure the passing of time.

How Can We Get It All Done?
