Dividing Decimals - Visual Models Included - Digital & Printable
Use visual models along with the standard algorithm to quickly and effectively teach your students how to divide decimals with this comprehensive printable and digital resource pack.
With 6 mini-lessons, (5 using the standard algorithm, and one with visual models) you will have plenty of resources to teach your student how to solve every type of decimal division problem.
Using visual models, students will have a more hands-on approach to “see” what it looks like when dividing decimals using tenths and hundredths in addition to the various types of problems with the standard algorithm. It’s great for kinesthetic learners as well as students that may struggle with memorizing algorithms.
This resource is complete, comprehensive, and easy to follow with a clear format. It is low-prep, easy to assign to a sub, and contains engaging printable activities and digital versions for use with Google Classroom. If your students are struggling conceptually, this resource is for you!
Standards Included: 5.NBT.7
This resource is also part of my 5th Grade Math Year-Long Curriculum Bundle.
How Can You Use This?
Introduce each skill with the detailed set of notes and sample problems. I suggest doing this in a whole group setting and displaying the PDF or pulling the slides up on a Smartboard if you’re in person or share the screen online if you’re teaching virtually.
Gradually release students to practice independently using the practice pages or slides activities. The printable version has 2 practice pages and 2 homework pages, which can also be used in the classroom for additional practice. The digital version uses the homework activities as additional practice.
When all skills have been taught, provide additional practice and review using the set of printable or digital task cards, then assess with the final quiz when you feel students are ready.
