# Operations & Algebraic Thinking – 3rd Grade

**Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division**.

Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

**Teacher Notes**

Drawings and equations help us solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities.

Understanding the context and actions of a story problem helps us to interpret and represent mathematical equations.
