# 3 Fraction Worksheets: Dividing Shapes Into Equal Parts for First Grade

Many of us have seen diagrams like the one to illustrate how to divide shapes into equal parts. These are useful when you have multiple shapes to draw, but it can also be useful to draw them as separate entities on their own. The concept behind these diagrams is simple. By dividing a shape into equal parts, we can identify the individual parts of that shape on their own and easier to understand the shape itself. This can help simplify a complex design by making it easier to visualize each piece of the shape.

## Divide shapes into equal parts

Diagrams of different shapes can be created in many different ways. Most commonly, they are drawn as a bunch of separate shapes onto a page where the top half is the main focus. Often, these top half objects are the same or very similar to each other. When we divide these shapes into equal parts, we can see the individual pieces of that shape. As we can see the top half of the shape, we can also see the bottoms and other bottom sides of these shapes as well.

### Worksheet 1

For example, if we were looking at a triangle, then we would see the three equal sides as being made up of the side pieces, the top portion of the triangle, and the bottom. Each of these parts has a specific purpose or feature, which makes it unique from all of the other shapes. These shapes can be used in many different ways. They can be combined, they can be subtracted, and they can even be multiplied into another shape.
