  • Students will understand that it is not necessary to line up decimals when multiplying decimals

Classroom Activities

  • I will model examples
  • I will then introduce dividing with decimals and demonstrate moving the decimal of the divisor until it is a whole number and then moving the decimal in the dividend the same number of places
  • We will then use task cards to let students practice multiplying and dividing with decimals
