Grade Level Expectations

M(N&O).3.1: Demonstrates conceptual understanding of rational numbers with respect to: whole numbers from 0 to 999 through equivalency, composition, decomposition, or place value using models, explanations, or other representations; and positive fractional numbers (benchmark fractions: a/2, a/3, a/4, a/6, or a/8, where a is a whole number greater than 0 and less than or equal to the denominator) as a part to whole relationship in area and set models where the number of parts in the whole is equal to the denominator; and decimals (within a context of money) as a part of 100 using models, explanations, or other representations.

M(G&M).3.1: Uses properties or attributes of angles (number of angles) or sides (number of sides or length of sides) or composition or decomposition of shapes to identify, describe, or distinguish among triangles, squares, rectangles, rhombi, trapezoids, hexagons, or circles.

M(G&M).3.4: Demonstrates conceptual understanding of congruency by matching congruent figures using reflections, translations, and rotations (flips, slides, and turns) (e.g., recognizing when pentominoes are reflections, translations and rotations of each other); composing and decomposing two- and three-dimensional objects using models or explanations (e.g., Given a cube, students use blocks to construct a congruent cube.); and by using line symmetry to demonstrate congruent parts within a shape.

M(G&M).3.6: Demonstrates conceptual understanding of perimeter of polygons, and the area of rectangles on grids using a variety of models or manipulatives. Expresses all measures using appropriate units.
