NC.3.OA.3 Represent, interpret, and solve one-step problems involving multiplication and division.
NC.3.OA.3.a Solve multiplication word problems with factors up to and including 10. Represent the problem using arrays, pictures, and/or equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
NC.3.OA.3.b Solve division word problems with a divisor and quotient up to and including 10. Represent the problem using arrays, pictures, repeated subtraction and/or equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
NC.3.NF.4 Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size, using area and length models, and using the >, <, and = symbols. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole with denominators: halves, fourths and eighths; thirds and sixths.
NC.3.MD.7 Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
NC.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.
NC.3.MD.7.b Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
NC.3.MD.7.c Use tiles and/or arrays to illustrate and explain that the area of a rectangle can be found by partitioning it into two smaller rectangles, and that the area of the large rectangle is the sum of the two smaller rectangles.
Understand the concept of perimeter.
NC.3.MD.8 Solve problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, and finding an unknown side length.
