Dividing Decimals hands-on

Dividing Decimals really can be hands-on! Use the base-10 blocks with your students. Model problems using simple numbers. Have students use dry erase markers and whiteboards to draw groups. They can partition, or divide, the tenths or hundredths.

Here is 1.4 divided by 2.

Here is 0.24 divided by 3. 

Have students shade models on the hundredths grid and partition the tenths or hundredths into equal groups. 

Try these problems!
0.27 ÷ 3
1.6 ÷ 2
0.36 ÷ 4
1.8 ÷ 3
