# Understand that Equal Parts Can Look Different - Volume and Area Contexts

In this lesson, we will understand that the same fraction can look different in the context of shading shapes with different volume or area. We will also investigate how a shaded fraction can look different but be the same proportion in the same shape if we make it in different ways.
