Mathematics
 Standard 2.Understands and applies basic and advanced properties of the concepts of numbers
  Level I [Grade K-2]
   Benchmark 5
Understands the concept of a unit and its subdivision into equal parts (e.g., one object, such as a candy bar, and its division into equal parts to be shared among four people)
    Knowledge/skill statement 3
Understands the concept of equal parts
K(ME,78;2E,211;CE,183,200;S1E,60)
    
Common Core Reference:
    1.G.3; 3.G.2
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.

3.G.2 Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
