This booklet explains how to partition rectangles and circles into halves, thirds, and fourths, and shows examples of each. Examples of partitioned shapes include non-traditional partitioning, showing students that equal shares are not always the same shape.
The booklet also includes 3 practice pages for students to partition rectangles and circles into halves, thirds, and fourths.
Aligns with Common Core Standard 2.G.A.3- Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
