This week students have been exploring and learning about how to partition circles, and soon rectangles, into two and four equal shares. They have been describing the shares using the math vocabulary words halves, fourths, and quarters, and using the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. They have also been describing the whole as two of, or four of the shares.
What we're learning in first grade. Students are also making comments in class! At home add to the posts, too.
