  1. where is the quarter?
    Here is the quarter of the square.
    How do you know its a square?
    Because it’s got a 90 Degree angle.
    So? A rectangle has 90 Degree angles.
    But a rectangle is much longer than a square.
    That doesn’t make sense.
    I think it looks like a square.
    But, how?
    Because it has equal sides and equal angles
    I am now convinced…

  2. First I fold the square into four pieces. Then a quarter is one of the squares, I know this because if you do a pizza and you cut it in four slices.You know 1 of the slices is going to be a quarter, Because all of the sides are going to be even and there is a 90 degree angle.

  3. First I folded the square into four triangles,then a quarter is one of the triangles.I know this because if you do a box and in the middle basically its a 90 degeree angle and its has three sides witch equals a quarter.

  4. How is that a quarter of a square?
    I folded a triangle and halved it. When I opened it up it was a quarter of a square. Just in a different way.
    But how do you know it’s a triangle?
    It has 3 sides and is a right angled isosceles.
    How do you know that?
    Because a right angle isosceles has a right angle and two equal sides.
    I am now convinced

    However, a rectangle is much longer than a square.
