Imagine you have a yummy chocolate bar, and you want to share it with your friend. But wait! How do you make sure you both get an equal piece? That's what we'll learn in our exciting chapter on "Fair Share." We'll explore fun ways to divide treats like chocolates and parathas equally, making sharing fair and enjoyable for everyone.
Imagine your summer vacations are going on and your best friend came to your house for a visit. Your mom prepared you a pizza and asked to share the yummy pizza with your friend. But how would you do so?
Yes, you guessed right! You'll cut the pizza in a way that you and your friend get equal share of the pizza.
So, what do we learnt from here? When 1 whole is shared equally between 2 people, each share is called a half!
That's how we understand the concepts of half and full—splitting things equally and knowing how the parts fit together to make the whole.
1. You've been given some shapes and you're required to divide each shape into two equal halves using a line.
Sol: After dividing the shapes into equal halves, they would look something like :2. You've been given some shapes with some of their part shaded. You're identify which one is equally shared and circle them.
Sol: The circled shapes below are the ones which are equally shared (equally halved):
Here, we haven't circled the pizza and the paratha because:
Great job! You've now become a pro at sharing things fairly among your friends and understanding what halves are all about. Plus, you've learned how to tell when exactly half of something is shaded. Keep up the fantastic work.
Imagine you and your friend have some marbles. You and your friend start counting the marbles each of you have and you get to know that you have 3 marbles, while your friend has 6. That's a lot more!
Now, let's see what's happening here.
Understanding halves and doubles helps us compare quantities and see how they relate to each other. It's like seeing how things are divided equally or doubled up.
Once upon a time, there were two best friends named Mia and Leo. They loved spending time together, especially when it involved yummy treats. One sunny afternoon, Mia's mom baked a delicious round cake for them to share.
Mia and Leo enjoyed their cakes, feeling happy and full, and they both learned a fun and delicious lesson about halves and doubles.
Imagine you have big pile of oranges.
So, if you have 8 oranges and want to find half of them, you just need to share them equally. That means each half will have 8/2 =4 oranges.Now, let's say you need to share your oranges with a friend, and you have to give a quarter of them.
So, if you have 8 oranges, you divide them into 4 equal parts. Each part will have 8/4 =2 oranges. So, when you give your friend a quarter of your oranges, you're giving them 2 oranges.
Understanding about halves and quarters helps us share things fairly and divide them equally. Whether it's sharing oranges or anything else, learning about halves and quarters makes numbers more fun to understand!
Imagine you have a delicious pizza.
As you've already understood about quarters,
Each slice is called a quarter. So, if you cut your pizza into four slices, each slice is one quarter of the whole pizza.Now, when we say "wholes," we mean the complete pizza i.e. 4 slices put together. So, if you have all four quarters of the pizza, you have the complete pizza—a whole pizza!
And mathematically, we can say that:
1 quarter + 1 quarter + 1 quarter + 1 quarter = 4 quarters = 1 whole
So, 4 quarters make a whole pizza!
Edurev Tip:
1. Use the clues to find the correct option. Also, Tick the correct option:
"I have less than double of 3 marbles.
I have more than half of 8 marbles."
Sol:
(i) Double of 3 marbles = 3 x 2 = 6 marbles.
Less than double of 3 marbles means less than 6 marbles.
(ii) Half of 8 marbles = 8/2 = 4 marbles.
More than half of 8 marbles means more than 4 marbles.
Hence, the correct option is (b) 5 marbles because it is less than 6 marbles and more than 4 marbles.
2. You've been given some shapes and you're required to make a quarter of a whole using a line.
Sol:
3. You've been given some shapes and you're required to tick mark the shapes which show threequarters.
