Gay Robins and Charles Shute describe this series of measures in their book on “The Rhind Mathematical Papyrus”, an ancient Egyptian mathematics text for apprentice scribes : “The common unit of volume, used for measuring amounts of grain or flour, was the hekat, approximately equal to 4.8 litres or just over a [British] gallon. (...) For smaller amounts, the hekat could be progressively halved to give /2, /4, /8, /16, /32, and /64 fractions. (...) [These ] are known as the Horus-eye fractions, because they were written with distinctive signs that resemble the parts of the eye of the falcon- headed god Horus, known as the wedjat-eye.

First Grade Place Value Websites Three days a week, I do my version of math workshop. In one center, students use the computer to reinforce the standards covered. I create a word/html document and put it in a shared folder so students can just click on the links (actually I embed the link in a picture from the website). Email me and I'll send you a copy of this.Sometimes I use these when we go to the computer lab. I have included a brief description so that you don't have to research these yourself.
