Year 1 have been having lots of fun investigating halves and quarters of shapes and numbers. Here is an example of a problem from the NRich website that Mrs Scott’s group have been tackling:
Can you split each of the shapes below in half so that the two parts are exactly the same?
We used colouring pencils to explore different ways to show halves (which we have learned means 2 equal parts). Our challenge was to colour the same number of squares and half squares with each colour.
Here are some of our solutions where the two halves make the same shape!
Can you find any other ways to solve this problem?
