• Relating parts to whole eg: filling up water in a measured bottle partially, fixing up, puzzels circularly, vertically, horizontally in places and completes the whole.

Introduction

Part and parts: Rani and Gowri wants equal share from 4 dosas. Could you please suggest an idea?

How many dosas are there? How many people are there?
