Big Ideas

Data can be represented to answer questions. Standard units of measurement provide consistency in measurement.

 

Cluster

Geometric measurement: recognize perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguish between linear and area measures.

Geometric measurement: understand concepts of area and relate area to multiplication and to addition.

 

Critical Areas of Focus

Developing understanding of the structure of rectangular arrays and of area.

 

Standards

CC.3.MD.8

Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.

CC.3.MD.5 

Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.

a. A square with side length one unit, called “a unit square,” is said to have “one square unit” of area, and can be used to measure area.

b. A plane figure which can be covered without gaps or overlaps by n unit squares is said to have an area of n square units.

CC.3.MD.6

Measure area by counting unit squares (square centimeters, square meters, square inches, square feet, and improvised units).

CC.3.MD.7

Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.

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.

b. Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole number side lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.

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.

d. Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping

parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.

 

Lessons:

11.1 How can you find perimeter?

11.2 How can you measure perimeter?

11.3 How can you find the unknown length of a side in a plane shape when you know its perimeter?

11.4 How is finding the area of a shape different from finding the perimeter of a shape?

11.5 How can you find the area of a plane shape?

11.6 Why can you multiply to find the area of a rectangle?

11.7 How can you use the strategy find a pattern to solve area problems?

11.8 How can you break apart a shape to find the area?

11.9 How can you use area to compare rectangles with the same perimeter?

11.10 How can you use perimeter to compare rectangles with the same area?
