Year 3 Measurement develops competence and confidence in application of Number to the topic of Measurement.
The Year 3 Measurement program covers essential components from the Measurement and Geometry strand outlined in the Australian curriculum. Concepts covered include length, area, comparing and calculating volume and capacity, and how to read time on both digital and analog clocks.
This learning program is made up of the following 5 topics, broken down into 34 concepts.
Recognise that there are 10 millimetres in one centimetre
Complete word problems that include lengths and distances using metres, centimetres and millimetres
Compare and order lengths and distances using metres and centimetres
Use the millimetre as a unit to measure lengths to the nearest millimetre
Recognise the need for a formal unit smaller than the centimetre to measure length.
Recognise that there are 100 centimetres in one metre
Use a square metre to measure the areas of large rectangles (including squares)
Recognise the need for a formal unit larger than the square centimetre to measure area
Estimate, select and use appropriate uniform informal units to find the area of shapes and record using the type of unit used
Recognise that an area of one square metre need not be a square
Use efficient strategies for counting large numbers of square centimetres
Estimate then measure the areas of rectangles (including squares) in square centimetres using 1cm squared grid overlay
Recognise the need for the square centimetre as a formal unit to measure area
Recognise the need for formal units to measure capacity
Recognise that one-litre containers may be a variety of shapes
Compare and order several objects based on capacity using appropriate uniform informal units. Record findings using drawings, numerals and words
Recognise the need for formal unit of cubic centimetre to measure volume
Compare the volumes of two or more objects made from cubic-centimetre blocks
Use the litre as a unit to measure capacities to the nearest litre
Compare and order several objects based on volume by counting the number of blocks used in the model
Describe packing in terms of layers
Use the kilogram as a unit to measure mass, using a pan balance
Choose an appropriate uniform informal unit and use it to measure the mass of an object. Record by referring to the number and type of unit used.
Recognise the need for a formal unit to measure mass, recognise abbreviation and associate with familiar objects
Compare and order two or more objects by mass measured to the nearest kilogram
Read digital clocks to the minute, including using the terms past and to. Record these in words
Describe the position of the hands on a clock for quarter past and quarter to. Associate the numbers 3 and 9 with these.
Identify which hour has just passed when the hour hand is not pointing to a numeral
Describe the hands on a clock as turning in a clockwise direction
Recognise the coordinated movements of the hands on an analog clock
Read analog clocks to the minute, including using the terms past and to. Record these in words
Read and record on analog clocks to the quarter hour using the terms past and to
Read and record on digital clocks to the quarter hour using the terms past and to
Use the terms hour, minute and second
