 If something is quartered it is divided into 4 equally sized parts.

# Year 1 Fractions - Quarters

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with recognising, finding and naming a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity. It gently introduces them to fractions.

Finding a quarter of a shape or set of objects is a progression from learning how to find a half. Children may relate finding a quarter to cutting objects into four equal parts, dividing by four or sharing groups into four equal amounts. Children should recognise that for the quarters to be accurate, all four parts or groups should be identical in size or amount.
