## Texas Go Math Grade 4 Lesson 14.1 Answer Key Angles and Fractional Parts

**Essential Question**

How can you relate angles and fractional ports of a circle?

Answer:

**Investigate**

Materials

- fraction circles

A. Place a \(\frac{1}{12}\) piece on the circle. Place the tip of the fraction piece on the center of the circle. Trace the fraction piece.

What figure is formed by the fraction piece? ______________

What parts of the fraction piece represent the rays of the angle? ______________

On what part of the circle is the vertex of the angle? ______________

Answer:

The straight sides.

At the center of the circle.

Explanation:

Here, the parts of the fraction piece represent the rays of the angle are the straight sides.

At the center of the circle, the part of the circle is the vertex of the angle.

B. Shade the angle cut out by the \(\frac{1}{12}\) piece. Label it \(\frac{1}{12}\).

Answer:

The shaded angle cut out by the \(\frac{1}{12}\) piece is

C.

Place the \(\frac{1}{12}\) piece back on the shaded angle. Turn it counterclockwise. Counterclockwise is the direction opposite from the way the hands move on a clock.

Trace the fraction piece in its new position. How many twelfths have you traced in all? _______________ Label \(\frac{2}{12}\).

Answer:

2 traced twelfths.

Explanation:

By tracing the fraction piece in its new position we can see 2 traced twelfths.

D. Turn the fraction piece counter clockwise again and trace it. Label the total number of twelfths. Continue until you reach the shaded angle. What figure is formed by turning and tracing the fraction piece? _______________

How many times did you need to turn the \(\frac{2}{12}\) piece to make a circle? _______________
