How to Divide a Square into Fourths


A square is among the most identifiable shapes and it is used in many ways, such as to start the foundation of a building or shape a baked treat. Squares have four sides that are equal in length. Dividing a square into four equal parts is an exercise taught early in elementary school. Each section of a square that has been divided into fourths is called quarters. The word "quarters" can be used to describe anything that is divided into four equal parts.

Things You'll Need

  • Ruler
  • Pencil crayons
  • Measure each side of the square. Place a dot in the middle of each measurement.

  • Draw a line from each dot to the corresponding dot on the other side of the square. You should have two intersecting lines in the middle of your square.

  • Shade in each section of the square in different colors to easily identify the four parts.
