We are working hard in class (and at home!) to perfect our division skills! A short study guide will come home Thursday evening to ensure students know these skills!

# Tuesday, September 22nd

Dividing decimals by whole numbers was our focus of study today! Students were given very brief notes in their math notebooks. The steps include the following:

1. Bring the decimal point straight up to the quotient line (and that’s all you’ve got to do with the decimal!)

2. Divide as normal.

Many examples were worked together during class to provide practice. Skills Practice “Dividing Decimals by Whole Numbers” was distributed to students. We worked #1-6 together as a whole class to ensure understanding. Problems #7-18 were assigned as homework. Remember to show all work!

P.S. Some of the problems toward the end of the worksheet get pretty long! Persevere and do your best!

A huge thank you to Mrs. Sandra Dozier from Campfire USA who came to our class today to discuss career interests and career paths! Her presentation was so interesting and definitely got our students to thinking about what they would like to do when they grow up!

No math homework tonight!

# Thursday, September 17th

The focus of our lesson today was multiplying decimals by decimals. The multiplication portion of this skill is the same as multiplying with whole numbers. When you add decimals to the numbers, just remember to move your decimal in the answer!
