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).
