This lesson introduces the terms half and quarter, or fourths, to name two equal parts of a whole and four equal parts of a whole, respectively. Students learn half-circle and quarter-circle as the names of shapes and recognize that they are named for their size and shape in relation to a whole circle. They also use models of rectangular and circular pizzas to discuss equal parts of the whole.
