# Common Core Standard 1.G.3. Lesson Plans

1.G.3 (1st grade geometry item 3) in the Common Core Standards for Mathematics states:

Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
