Description

Overview:
In the previous lesson, students learned how to divide a decimal by a whole number. They also saw that multiplying both the dividend and the divisor by the same power of 10 does not change the quotient. In this lesson, students integrate these two understandings to find the quotient of two decimals. They see that to divide a number by a decimal, they can simply multiply both the dividend and divisor by a power of 10 so that both numbers are whole numbers. Doing so makes it simpler to use long division, or another method, to find the quotient. Students then practice using this principle to divide decimals in both abstract and contextual situations.
