Halves

In this video, we will learn how to divide shapes into two equal parts, name each part as a half, and tell the number of halves in a whole.

If we take a strawberry and cut it into two equal parts, we call each part a half. How many halves make a whole strawberry? There are two halves. Two halves equals one whole. This apple has been divided into two equal parts. Each part is half an apple. Two halves equals one whole apple. And two halves of an orange makes a whole orange. We can also divide shapes into two equal parts. We call each part a half. And we know that two halves equals one whole shape. Let’s practice identifying halves of shapes.

Pick a shape that has one half colored.

We’re showing three different shapes. And we have to find the one which has half colored. We know that there are two halves in a whole. If we divide a shape into two equal parts, we call each part a half. Has this rectangle been divided into two equal parts? No, it hasn’t. It’s been divided into four equal parts. Has the second shape been divided into two equal parts? Yes, it has. And one-half has been colored green. The third shape has been divided into two parts, but they’re not equal. This is the shape which has one half colored.

Here is a shape. The shape is divided into what equal parts. One what of the shape is shaded. Is it one half or one quarter?

This shape has been divided into two equal parts. We call each of these equal parts a half. And one of those halves has been shaded. This shape has been divided into two equal parts. One half of the shape is shaded.

Pick one way to divide a rectangle into halves.

We know that halves are equal parts of a whole. Which of these rectangles has been divided into two equal parts? It’s the first rectangle. The second rectangle has been divided into two parts, but they’re not equal. And the third rectangle has also been divided into two parts which are not equal. One way to divide a rectangle into halves is this way.

What have we learned in this video? We’ve learned that when we divide shapes into two equal parts, we call each part a half. We’ve also learned that two halves make one whole.
