Algebraic Thinking and Operations Task Cards Third Grade Common Core Standards

A comprehensive set of task cards aligned with the 3rd grade Common Core Standards in Operations and Algebraic Thinking. Nearly all of the standards are covered in these fun and engaging task cards. Use all of these cards in a variety of different ways to to review or assess the standards.

Please Note: Due to the varying nature of the standards, Not all of the cards are the same size, but thoroughly cover all topics.

The following Common Core Standards are covered in these task cards:

Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division.
3.OA.1.Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. (PAGE 3-6)
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, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. (PAGE 3-6)
3.OA.3. 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. (PAGE 3-6)
3.OA.4. Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. (PAGE 7)

Understand properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division.
3.OA.5. Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. (PAGE 8)
3.OA.6. Understand division as an unknown-factor problem. (PAGE 9)

Multiply and divide within 100.
3.OA.7.Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers. (All Pages practice multiplication)

Solve problems involving the four operations, and identify and explain patterns in arithmetic.
3.OA.8. Solve two-step word problems using the four operations. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. (PAGES 10-12)
