United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

  • 1 – Grade 1
    • 1.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 1.G.3 – Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.

  • 2 – Grade 2
    • 2.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 2.G.3 – Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
