Match Fishtank 50 min(s)

In this lesson, students will explain patterns in the number of zeros of the quotient when dividing a whole number by 10. Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in any place represents 1/10 as much as it represents in the place to its left. Understand that a digit in one place represents 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left. Students will only divide in cases where the quotient is a whole number.
