Maryland College and Career-Ready Standards
MD.MA.3.OA. Operations and Algebraic Thinking (OA)
3.OA.A. Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division.
3.OA.A.1. Major Standard: Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5x7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5x7.
3.OA.A.1.3. Ability to use concrete objects, pictures, and arrays to represent the product as the total number of objects.
3.OA.C. Multiply and divide within 100.
3.OA.C.7. Major Standard: Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8x5 = 40, one knows 40÷5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
3.OA.C.7.1. Knowledge of multiplication and division strategies and properties to achieve efficient recall of facts.
3.OA.C.7.2. Ability to use multiple strategies to enhance understanding.
