This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 13, Unit 5, Grade 6. In this activity, students practice calculating quotients of decimals by using any method they prefer. Then, they extend their practice to calculate the division of decimals in a real-world context. While students could use ratio techniques (e.g., a ratio table) to answer the last question, encourage them to use the division of decimal numbers. The application of division to solve real-world problems illustrates MP4.
