This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 11, Unit 5, Grade 6. This activity extends division techniques used to find whole-number quotients to divide whole numbers resulting in (terminating) decimal quotients. In these problems, students see remainders in the ones place. In order to continue the division process, the ones are broken into tenths. Conceptually, this is the same unbundling idea that is used when hundreds are broken into tens or when tens are broken into ones.
