Through a series of warm up problems, guided notes, and worksheets, this unit addresses basic division of decimals, converting from fractions to decimals, terminating and repeating quotients, division with rounding, and order of operations problems. Yes, it IS all right here! The warm up sheets contain thought-provoking questions to pique student interest. The scaffolded notes are stimulating and serve as an easy method for teachers to provide notes and guided practice. The math “poetry”, which is also included, increases students’ level of engagement and further cements concepts. The product also contains several well-thought-out worksheets and a review and unit assessment (all with accompanying detailed keys). If you are looking for an easy-to-teach, comprehensive method to cover division of decimals completely, this is the product for you!

Note 1: This product can also be purchased as part of a Complete Decimals Unit, but has been broken off as a separate product for those who would like to focus specifically on division of decimals. Those wishing to conduct a comprehensive decimals unit should purchase the Complete Decimals Unit: It's All Right Here product instead.

Note 2: This product assumes the students have some prior knowledge of decimal place value, ordering decimals, and using decimals with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and exponents. If necessary the teacher may need to do some review of these concepts prior to the start of this unit.

The product is broken into three different sets of warm-ups, notes, and worksheets. The first set introduces division with simple problems (that do not involve inserting additional zeroes in the dividend) to establish division terminology (“divisor”, “dividend”, “quotient”) and appropriate placement of the decimal point in the quotient. The second set (appropriately dubbed, “The Power of the Zero”), introduces a variety of problems that involve insertion of additional zeroes in the dividend. These include problems with terminating and repeating quotients, conversion of fractions to decimals, and order of operations problems involving division. The third set introduces the vital real-world concept of rounding, then tasks the students to find quotients and round the quotient to different decimal places. Word problems are embedded through all three sets of warm-up/notes/worksheets. The review and unit assessment immediately follow this third set of activities.

This is the ideal comprehensive dividing decimals unit for late elementary or early middle school. Feel free to review the preview file for details on all parts of this product.

Good luck in your use of Dividing Decimals – It’s All Right Here!
