## United States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### 3.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 3.MD.5 – Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.

• 3.MD.5.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.

• 3.MD.7 – Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.

• 3.MD.7.a – Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.

• 3.MD.7.c – Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths a and b + c is the sum of a × b and a × c. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
