Solve problems involving measurement and estimation of intervals of time, liquid volumes and masses of objects  Cluster 1 

Standard 3.MD.1: Tell and
write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in
minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction
of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a
number line diagram.

3.MD.2: Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects
using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters
(l). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve onestep word
problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units,
e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to
represent the problem.

Represent and interpret data  Cluster 2 

Standard 3.MD.3: Draw a
scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set
with several categories. Solve one and twostep "how many more"
and "how many less" problems using information presented in scaled bar
graphs.

Standard 3.MD.4: Generate
measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves
and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot,
where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate unitswhole
numbers, halves, or quarters.

Standard 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.
