Common Core: 2G3 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. Technology Standard: 3.0Technology for Learning and Collaboration: Students will use a variety of technologies for learning and collaboration.
