Equal Shares

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This purpose of this task is for students to understand how to partition shapes into equal pieces. This task starts students with concrete representations of the shapes that they can fold and cut, so that later they will understand more abstract representations like diagrams and symbols. Part one provides students with opportunities to manipulate paper shapes, folding them to create equal parts. Students start with a square so that vertical, horizontal, and diagonal folds all match the two sides exactly, this makes it easy to see what is meant by 'equal parts in this case.
