What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

## Australia – Australian Curriculum

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Using units of measurement

• ACMMG290 – Compare objects using familiar metric units of area and volume

## New Zealand – National Standards

• ##### 4.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 4.GM.1 – Measure the lengths, areas, volumes or capacities, weights, and temperatures of objects and the duration of events, reading scales to the nearest whole number and applying addition, subtraction, and simple multiplication to standard units

## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 4 programme of study
• KS2.Y4.M – Measurement

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y4.M.3 – Find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares

## United States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### 3.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 3.MD.6 – Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).

• 3.MD.7 – Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.

• 3.MD.7.c – Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths a and b + c is the sum of a × b and a × c. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
