MAT04 Targeted Standards (OA) Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking Cluster: Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.
MAT04.OA.03 Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having wholenumbers answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
