This 60-page pdf document demonstrates the connections between the CCSS content standards and the mathematical practice standards. It is a compilation of research, standards from several states, instructional strategies, common misconceptions, and examples for each standard at the grade 3 level. It is intended to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. Additional flip books are cataloged separately for grades K-2 and 4-5. | Instructional Strategy, Reference Materials Grade Level: 3 | |

This web page provides links to resources aligned to the CCSS that guide and support third grade mathematics teaching and learning. Tasks developed by the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS) and Problems of the Month, (POM home page is cataloged separately) developed by the Noyce Foundation are included. The tasks were designed to measure students’ ability to solve non-routine problems, explain and justify their solutions, and promote high level thinking skills. They include the scoring rubric, student responses, and discussion of student understanding and misconceptions. Resources are listed for specific grade 3 standards and are also organized by progression for an alternate search route. | Instructional Strategy, Problem Set, Reference Materials Grade Level: 3 | |

This page provides examples of 3rd Grade Measurement and Data activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. A CCSS standard is stated and the possible activities are listed below and linked. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group, or whole class settings and are designed to elicit a range of responses and provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. Instructions for each task are typed in large print and written in child-friendly language to enable students to work on activities independently after a brief introduction to the task. All files for 3rd Grade Measurement and Data Activities listed are in PDF format. | Activity Grade Level: 3 | |

This problem reinforces the telling of time on a digital clock, and it requires students to work systematically. The number of 'times' the digit 5 appears in a 24-hour period is a matter of a solver's assumptions. Ideas for implementation, extension and support are included along with a printable poster. A link to an interactive Class Clock (cataloged separately) is provided. | Activity Grade Level: 3, 4, 5 | |

This question and answer service for math students and their teachers offers a searchable archive all about measurement at the elementary level. | Reference Materials, Community Grade Level: 3, 4, 5, 6+ | |

This activity allows the user to practice reading an analog clock. Users can input times for the clock to display, or let the clock generate random times to read. The user can choose from 3 difficulty levels which set the random display to half hour, five minute, or one minute increments. A scoring feature allows the user to keep track of the number correct. | Interactive Media, Problem Set Grade Level: 1, 2, 3, 4 | |

This narrative document describes the progression of Geometric Measurement across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for elementary geometric measurement. Among those are recognizing measurable attributes, comparing, connecting with number, estimating, and differentiating linear measurement from area and volume. | Reference Materials, Article Grade Level: K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Resource is part of a PD collection | |

This interactive Java applet allows the user to practice finding elapsed time using analog or digital clocks. Using the "See" mode the user advances a clock from the beginning time to the ending time and the applet calculates the elapsed time. Using the "Guess" mode, the user must calculate the elapsed time between the given beginning and ending times. Three difficulty levels allow the user to practice with hour, five minute, or single minute increments. An optional scoring feature allows the user to keep track of number correct, though this feature is optional. | Interactive Media, Problem Set Grade Level: 3, 4, 5 | |

This interactive Java applet allows the user to practice calculating an ending time or a beginning time given the elapsed time using analog or digital clocks. Using the "See" mode the user advances (or rewinds) a clock from the given time using the elapsed time to find the ending (or beginning) time. Using the "Guess" mode, the user must calculate the ending (or beginning) time given the elapsed time. Three difficulty levels allow the user to practice with hour, five minute, or single minute increments. An optional scoring feature allows the user to keep track of number correct. | Interactive Media, Problem Set Grade Level: 3, 4, 5 | |

This 3-lesson unit develops students' abilities to measure and model elapsed time in various ways. Students construct clocks, time line models, and they read and interpret schedules. The lessons employ hands on activities, interactive technology, and literature to enhance understanding. Student materials, assessments and solutions are provided. | Activity, Interactive Media, Unit of Instruction Grade Level: 3, 4, 5 Resource is part of a PD collection |
