Narrative for the (G) Geometry

Grade 2 students learn to name and describe the defining attributes of categories of two-dimensional shapes, including circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, rhombuses, trapezoids, and the general category of quadrilateral. They describe pentagons, hexagons, octagons, and other polygons by the number of sides. Because they have developed both verbal descriptions of these shapes and their defining attributes and a rich store of associated mental images, they are able to draw shapes with specified attributes, such as a shape with five sides or a shape with six angles.

Students in Grade 2 also explore decompositions of shapes into regions that are congruent or have equal area. For example, two squares can be partitioned into fourths in different ways. Any of these fourths represents an equal share of the shape (e.g., “the same amount of cake”) even though they have different shapes.

Calculation Method for Domains

Domains are larger groups of related standards. The Domain Grade is a calculation of all the related standards. Click on the standard name below each Domain to access the learning targets and rubrics/ proficiency scales for individual standards within the domain.

MAT-02.G.03

MAT-02 Targeted Standards
(G) Domain: Geometry
Cluster: Reason with shapes and their attributes.

MAT-02.G.03 Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape. Partition: Divide into pieces. (ND)

Student Learning Targets:

Knowledge Targets

  • I can identify one-half, one-fourth, and one-third shaded parts.

Reasoning Targets

  • I can understand that the same shape can be divided into equal parts in different ways.

Skills (Performance) Targets

  • I can divide circles and rectangles into 2,3,and 4 equal parts in different ways.
  • I can use the words halves, thirds, fourths, and half of to describe the equal parts.
  • I can describe one whole as being 2 halves, 3 thirds, and 4 fourths.
