• Unit 2 - Multiplication and Division
     -3.OA.1 Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 X 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each.  For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 X 7.
    - 3.OA.2 Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56/8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares of 8 objects each.  For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56/8.
    - 3.OA.3 Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measure quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
    - 3.OA.4 Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 x ? =48, 5 = ? / 3, 6 x 6 = ? 
    - 3.OA.5 Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.  (Commutative, Associative, and Distributive)
    - 3.OA.6 Understand division as an unknown-factor problem.
    Vocabulary Words:

    Array – objects or symbols displayed in rows of the same length and columns of the same length

    Dividend – a number that is being divided

    Division – to separate into equal groups

    Divisor – the number by which the dividend is being divided

    equations – a sentence that contains an equal sign (=) showing that two expressions are equal

    factor – a number that is multiplied by another number

    multiplication – an operation on two numbers to find the product.

    partitioning – a strategy for division in which divide into equal parts

    product – the answer to a multiplication problem

    quantity – how much there is of something

    quotient – the answer to a division problem

    repeated addition – ex: 4 x 2 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2

    variable – a symbol for an unknown number
