Alaska Content and Performance Standards
AK.3.OA. Operations and Algebraic Thinking
Understand properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division.
3.OA.5. Make, test, support, draw conclusions and justify conjectures about properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. (Students need not use formal terms for these properties.)
3.OA.5.b. Associative property of multiplication: 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30.
AK.3.NBT. Number and Operations in Base Ten
Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.
3.NBT.2. Use strategies and/or algorithms to fluently add and subtract with numbers up to 1000, demonstrating understanding of place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
