This math task is a perfect match for the 3.OA.A.3 standard, which deals with multiplication and division in word problems. It's great because it comes with a clear grading rubric that makes it easy for teachers to assess and for students to understand what's expected. It's a quick and efficient way to see how well students are doing in math, covering the important concepts in the standard.
