Topics for Year 3 of the Grade 3-5 Math Core Team Grant Project 2013-2014

September – October – 2013

Measurement: Non-geometric

  • Solve problems involving measurement and estimation on intervals of time, liquid volumes, and masses of objects.
  • Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements of units within a given measurement system and between different systems.

November – December      2013

Measurement: Geometric

  • Recognize perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguish between linear and area measures.
  • Understand concepts of area and volume and relate area to multiplication and measurement and solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area and volume.
  • Understand concepts of angle and measure angles and solve real-world and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area and volume.



January – May 2014


  • Reason with shapes and their attributes.
  • Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.
  • Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

July –August  2014


  • Generate measurement data.
  • Represent and interpret data.
  • Develop understanding of statistical variability.
  • Summarize and describe distribution.
  • Use random sampling to draw inference about a population.
  • Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.
