solve problems involving partitioning an object or a set of objects among two or more recipients using pictorial representations of fractions with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8


This standard links fractions of a whole and fractions of a set by showing how to partition each with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, or 8.
