Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Grade(s) 3 resources related to the following standard:
Measurement and Data
Solve problems involving measurement and estimation of intervals of time, liquid volumes, and masses of objects.
2. Measure 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.

This 60-page pdf document demonstrates the connections between the CCSS content standards and the mathematical practice standards. It is a compilation of research, standards from several states, instructional strategies, common misconceptions, and examples for each standard at the grade 3 level. It is intended to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. Additional flip books are cataloged separately for grades K-2 and 4-5.

This page provides examples of 3rd Grade Measurement and Data activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. A CCSS standard is stated and the possible activities are listed below and linked. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group, or whole class settings and are designed to elicit a range of responses and provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. Instructions for each task are typed in large print and written in child-friendly language to enable students to work on activities independently after a brief introduction to the task. All files for 3rd Grade Measurement and Data Activities listed are in PDF format.

This narrative document describes the progression of Geometric Measurement across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for elementary geometric measurement. Among those are recognizing measurable attributes, comparing, connecting with number, estimating, and differentiating linear measurement from area and volume.

This activity gives students a chance to make estimates and comparisons of the measures of length (height) and capacity. It presents an image of a tiny elf next to a normal size mug. Students are asked to estimate the Little Man's height and compare it with that of other objects. Next, they are asked to estimate the height and volume of the Little Man's mug. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, and ideas for extension and support.

This Flash applet provides a virtual medium for measuring capacity in everyday containers. Students empty a container into a graduated one-liter beaker and then select the correct measurement in milliliters (multiples of 100). Answers are checked and there is an option of showing scale numbers on the beaker.
