    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.
    Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
    Partition a rectangle into rows and columns of same-size squares and count to find the total number of them.
    Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
    Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
