Math Grade 1 Quiz Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares – 1.G.A.3

The standard “CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.3” addresses the foundational concept of fractions, specifically for circles and rectangles. Students are introduced to the idea of dividing these shapes into equal parts, typically two or four. This standard emphasizes the terminology associated with these partitions, such as “halves,” “fourths,” and “quarters.” Students learn to describe a portion of the shape using phrases like “half of” or “quarter of.” Furthermore, they also grasp that the entire shape can be described in terms of these fractions – for instance, a whole circle can be described as “two of the halves” or “four of the quarters.” An essential understanding from this standard is that as shapes are divided into more shares, each individual share becomes smaller.
