Study guides will be given in class on Thursday for students to work through independently.  I will be pulling small groups for individualized help as we work in class on Thursday. (We worked in small groups during class today as well!)

We did not complete our classwork today and I did not assign the rest of it for homework. Now, if any of my students want to get industrious and practice their division a little more, that would be GREAT! But technically…..

NO HOMEWORK FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT, SEPTEMBER 21ST

# Monday, September 19th

Students are beginning to divide decimals by decimals today in class. These are the notes students wrote down in their math notebook:

• the divisor CAN NOT have a decimal in it
• move the divisor decimal to the RIGHT enough times to make it a whole number
• move the decimal in the dividend the same number of times
• push the decimal straight up “to the roof”
• divide like normal

We worked many examples together in class to ensure everyone understands the procedures and also to ensure accuracy!
