One quarter, 0.25, 25%

These patterns all came from an idea about splitting a square in to quarters, or 4 equal parts. Of course, the parts do not need to be the same shape although they must all have the same area, that is to say they each take up the same space.
The work was started on squared paper. After some experimenting the pupils, all from year 8, wanted to try their ideas out on the computer and the patterns you see here are the result.
You may have your own ideas about how to split up the square. There are plenty of computer programs which will allow you to use a square or isometric grid and develop your ideas.
