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!
