We taught others today. We're great mathematicians
It was hard to compare them side by side.
Look. I have made halves.
Me too! They're equal.
I have to find the middle. Yes this is the middle.
To find half I need to look on each side.
I can compare the sizes using marks on my ruler.
I'm going to try again to make them equal.
I did it!
I've finally got it. I've made thirds.
What shall I try next?
I've made equal parts but didn't use it up. Oops.
They were tricky. Are they equal? Yes I think so.
Halves, thirds, quarters...what next...fifths.
I'm teaching others because I'm a mathematician!
That was hard. I made three parts.
How can we write down what we have made?
I have one third and there are 2 thirds left.
That is better. Now it's equal.
I need to turn some pieces over.
Look I can prove they are equal.
Let's try writing what we have made using symbols.
The parts are equal.
Each piece has the same name.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
