Subject: Mathematics (2)
Title: Partitioning Rectangles

Students will use paper to model the partitioning of rectangles into two, three, and four equal shares. Students will transfer this concrete model to represent equal shares on a drawing, labeling the shares as halves, thirds, or fourths. Throughout the lesson, the teacher will use an interactive geoboard app to guide instruction and represent student ideas.

This activity was created as a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.
