Unit 2, Lesson 24# Divide decimal dividends by multiples of 10, reasoning about the placement of the decimal point and making connections to a written method.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students begin to divide decimals by multiples of ten. They solve a sequence of problems that use the same digits, but the decimal placement varies, using place value disks. For example, students solve 54 ÷ 10, 5.4 ÷ 10, and 0.54 ÷ 10. Then they solve a similar sequence of problems using a place value chart and reasoning about the placement of the decimal, and finally, making connections to the written method.
