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 recognize that for the quarters to be accurate, all four parts or groups should be identical in size or amount.
