Grade 3 Mathematics Module 4, Topic D, Overview

Girl in Classroom

Topic D creates an opportunity for students to solve problems involving area (3.MD.7b).  Students decompose and/or compose composite regions into non-overlapping rectangles, find the area of each region, and add or subtract to determine the total area of the original shape.  This leads students to design a simple floor plan that conforms to given area specifications (3.MD.7d).
