Exploring Equal Parts
Early Elementary

The worksheets provided below encourage students to explore subdividing the basic shapes -- circle, square and triangle -- into equal parts in different ways. This allows for a very informal approach to thinking about the symmetry of these important shapes. This may also help students generalize on using symmetry to subdivide other shapes into equal parts.
