Quarter 1 Standards

  1. 3.M.NBT.A.02: The Highly Proficient student can explain the method used in finding the sum or difference and recognizes and identifies an error and shows the correct answer. 

  2. 3.M.NBT.A.03The Highly Proficient student can use multiple strategies to find the product of single-digit whole numbers by multiples of 10.

  3. 3.M.OA.A.01: The Highly Proficient student can interpret products of whole numbers as the total number of objects in equal groups.

  4. 3.M.OA.A.02: The Highly Proficient student can interpret quotients of whole numbers within 100, by representing context using pictures, numbers, and words.

  5. 3.M.OA.A.03The Highly Proficient student can multiply and divide within 144 to solve word problems, using a wide range of strategies. (Vail/BT expectation - use multiplication & division within 144 to solved word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, & measurement quantities.)

  6. 3.M.OA.A.04: The Highly Proficient student can determine an unknown whole number in a multiplication and division equation.

  7. 3.M.OA.B.05: The Highly Proficient student can apply multiple strategies of operations within a problem.

  8. 3.M.OA.B.06: Understand division as an unknown-factor problem (e.g., find 32 ÷ 8 by finding the number that makes 32 when multiplied by 8).

Quarter 2 Standards

  1. 3.M.G.A.02: The Highly Proficient student can partition shapes in multiple ways into parts with equal areas and expresses the area as a unit fraction of the whole.

  2. 3.M.MD.A.02a: The Highly Proficient student can estimate and measure mass and capacity to solve two-step real world problems with any operation.

  3. 3.M.MD.A.02b: The Highly Proficient student can solve two-step measurement word problems with any operation.

  4. 3.M.NF.A.01: The Highly Proficient student can apply the understanding of unit fractions to real world problems and situations.

  5. 3.M.NF.A.02: The Highly Proficient student can show a set of fractions with unlike denominators on a number-line by partitioning into equal parts, and apply understanding of fractions to real world situations. 

  6. 3.M.NF.A.02c: Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram. c. Understand a fraction 1/b as a special type of fraction can be referred to as a unit fraction (e.g. 1/2, 1/4).

  7. 3.M.NF.A.03: The Highly Proficient student can create models to compare fractions and explain why two fractions are equivalent. 

  8. 3.M.OA.D.09: The Highly Proficient student can create and extend arithmetic patterns and explain patterns using properties of operations.

Quarter 3 Standards

  1. 3.M.MD.A.01a: The Highly Proficient student can solve two-step real world time interval problems using addition and subtraction to the minute.

  2. 3.M.MD.A.01b: The Highly Proficient Student can a two-step word problem  involving money through $20.00.

  3. 3.M.MD.B.03The Highly Proficient student can solve multi-step "how many more" and "how many less" problems using scaled bar graphs and line plots. 

  4. 3.M.MD.B.04The Highly Proficient student can create and show measurement data to the nearest ¼ inch using a line plot graph, in order to answer multi-step questions.

  5. 3.M.NBT.A.01: The Highly Proficient student can use rounding strategies in real-world situations.

  6. 3.M.OA.C.07: The Highly Proficient student can multiply and divide within 144 using a wide range of contexts. (Vail/BT expectation - fluently multiply and divide within 144, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division.)

  7. 3.M.OA.D.08The Highly Proficient student can create two-step word problems using multiple operations

Quarter 4 Standards

  1. 3.M.G.A.01: The Highly Proficient student can recognize and sort examples of quadrilaterals that have shared attributes and draws examples and non-examples of quadrilaterals that are not rhombuses, rectangles, or squares. 

  2. 3.M.MD.C.05The Highly Proficient student can understand area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement. a. A square with side length 1 unit, called “a unit square,” is said to have “one square unit” of area, and can be used to measure area. b. A plane figure which can be covered without gaps or overlaps by n unit squares is said to have an area of n square units.

  3. 3.M.MD.C.06: The Highly Proficient student can measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units). 

  4. 3.M.MD.C.07: The Highly Proficient student can find the area of 2 plane figures by counting the square units or multiplying their side lengths and compares their sizes. The Highly Proficient student can create a word problem using the distributive property to find the area of rectangles.

  5. 3.M.MD.C.08: The Highly Proficient student can construct rectangles that have the same perimeter but different areas.
