TEK 1.6 Geometry and measurement. The student applies mathematical process standards to analyze attributes of two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional solids to develop generalizations about their properties.

The student is expected to:

(G) partition two-dimensional figures [such as circles and rectangles] into two and four fair shares or equal parts and describe the parts using words [such as "halves," "half of," "fourths," or "quarters"] ; and

(H) identify examples and non-examples of halves and fourths.
