Unit 8, Lesson 8

Interpret equal shares in composite shapes as halves, thirds, and fourths

EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students are introduced to partitioning shapes into two equal shares, or halves, using both circles and rectangles. They discover that halves are determined by equal parts, not by the orientation of the line. Finally, students look at pictures of partitioned shapes and discuss whether the shaded (or unshaded) portion is two equal shares.
