Label a partitioned shape (e.g., one whole rectangle was separated into two halves; one whole circle was separated into three thirds.)


Essential Understandings


  • Understand the concept that a portion is a part of the whole.
  • Given a concrete object, in the shape of a rectangle or circle, which has been partitioned into two, three, or four equal parts, label each portion. (Ex: label each half as one half, label each third as one third, label each fourth as one fourth).
  • Match the partitioned shape to the appropriate label.
  • Identify and use vocabulary for whole, part, partition, portion, half, third, fourth.

Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 06/14
Cluster: Reason with shapes and their attributes. (Additional Cluster)

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
