This Dividing Decimals lesson will give kids the support they need to master this skill along with the independent practice time they need to retain it forever.
This lesson only contains one-digit, whole number divisors with decimal dividends (never a decimal divided by a decimal). It also avoids remainders so that students can focus just on the division and don't have to worry about adding zeros to their dividend and expressing remainders as division.
The lesson focuses both on computation and on real-life situations so that students see how this skill will be used in the real world.
The lesson includes:
-Teacher Lead Problem Set (all word problems)
-Partner Practice (Mix of computation and Word problems)
-3 Levels of Scaffolded Independent Practice
-Level 1: Computation Only
-Level 2: Word Problems
-Level 3: Challenge! Finding averages (an example is given)
-Answer Keys for Everything
This lesson is designed for 5th grade but could easily be used in 6th or 7th grade as a review lesson.
