TN.3.MD. Measurement and Data (MD)
3.MD.A. Solve problems involving measurement and estimation of intervals of time, liquid volumes, and masses of objects.
3.MD.A.2. Measure the mass of objects and liquid volume using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), milliliters (ml), and liters (l). Estimate the mass of objects and liquid volume using benchmarks. For example, a large paper clip is about one gram, so a box of about 100 large clips is about 100 grams. Therefore, ten boxes would be about 1 kilogram.
3.MD.B. Represent and interpret data.
3.MD.B.4. Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units: whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
