In this 5th grade division unit, students will take their understanding to the next level by applying division skills with multi-digit numbers. Students will also begin to explore division with decimals and practice using estimation to check the reasonableness of their answers. Last, students will use their knowledge of the base ten number system to divide decimals by base ten exponents (i.e. .4 ➗ 104).
Challenge students to use their understanding of standard algorithm division to list multiples while solving division problems. Focus on their language use and opinions in this pre-lesson to the Partial Quotients Method lesson.
