3.MP: Mathematical Practices

(Framing Text): Students become mathematically proficient in engaging with mathematical content and concepts as they learn, experience, and apply these skills and attitudes

3.MP.1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

3.MP.1.a: Explain the meaning of a problem, look for entry points to begin work on the problem, and plan and choose a solution pathway. When a solution pathway does not make sense, look for another pathway that does. Explain connections between various solution strategies and representations. Upon finding a solution, look back at the problem to determine whether the solution is reasonable and accurate, often checking answers to problems using a different method or approach.

3.MP.2: Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

3.MP.2.a: Make sense of quantities and their relationships in problem situations. Contextualize quantities and operations by using images or stories. Decontextualize a given situation and represent it symbolically. Interpret symbols as having meaning, not just as directions to carry out a procedure. Know and flexibly use different properties of operations, numbers, and geometric objects.

 Fraction, Decimal, Percent (Area and Grid Models)

3.MP.4: Model with mathematics.

3.MP.4.a: Identify the mathematical elements of a situation and create a mathematical model that shows the relationships among them. Identify important quantities in a contextual situation, use mathematical models to show the relationships of those quantities, analyze the relationships, and draw conclusions. Models may be verbal, contextual, visual, symbolic, or physical.
