Third Grade Math Standards of Learning
2009 Standards of Learning
Number and Number Sense
Focus: Place Value and Fractions
3.1 The student will
3.2 The student will recognize and use the inverse relationships between addition/subtraction and multiplication/division to complete basic fact sentences. The student will use these relationships to solve problems.
3.3 The student will
Computation and Estimation
Focus: Computation and Fraction Operations
3.4 The student will estimate solutions to and solve single-step and multistep problems involving the sum or difference of two whole numbers, each 9,999 or less, with or without regrouping.
3.5 The student will recall multiplication facts through the twelves table, and the corresponding division facts.
3.6 The student will represent multiplication and division, using area, set, and number line models, and create and solve problems that involve multiplication of two whole numbers, one factor 99 or less and the second factor 5 or less.
3.7 The student will add and subtract proper fractions having like denominators of 12 or less.
Focus: U.S. Customary and Metric Units, Area and Perimeter, and Time
3.8 The student will determine, by counting, the value of a collection of bills and coins whose total value is $5.00 or less, compare the value of the bills and coins, and make change.

3.10 The student will
3.11 The student will
3.12 The student will identify equivalent periods of time, including relationships among days, months, and years, as well as minutes and hours.
3.13 The student will read temperature to the nearest degree from a Celsius thermometer and a Fahrenheit thermometer. Real thermometers and physical models of thermometers will be used.
Focus: Properties and Congruence Characteristics of Plane and Solid Figures
3.14 The student will identify, describe, compare, and contrast characteristics of plane and solid geometric figures (circle, square, rectangle, triangle, cube, rectangular prism, square pyramid, sphere, cone, and cylinder) by identifying relevant characteristics, including the number of angles, vertices, and edges, and the number and shape of faces, using concrete models.
3.15 The student will identify and draw representations of points, line segments, rays, angles, and lines.
3.16 The student will identify and describe congruent and noncongruent plane figures.

3.18 The student will investigate and describe the concept of probability as chance and list possible results of a given situation.
Patterns, Functions, and Algebra
Focus: Patterns and Property Concepts
3.19 The student will recognize and describe a variety of patterns formed using numbers, tables, and pictures, and extend the patterns, using the same or different forms.
3.20 The student will
