EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students build upon their new knowledge by assembling a whole out of fractional parts. Given a circle made of two parts, students see that the whole circle is composed of two halves. Similarly, they see that a whole rectangle cut into thirds is made of three thirds, or that a square cut into fourths is made of four fourths.
