# Lesson Plan: Whole Number Division with Decimal Quotients Mathematics • 6th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to divide whole numbers where there is a remainder and express the quotient as a decimal.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• apply knowledge of fractions to convert mixed number quotients to equivalent decimal values,
• divide two whole numbers where there is a remainder and express the quotient as a decimal,
• express dividends as a number of tenths, hundredths, or thousandths in order to help with divisions,
• use long division to find decimal quotients.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• using long division to divide multi-digit numbers by single-digit divisors with whole number quotients,
• common fraction and decimal equivalents.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• calculations where the decimal quotient has more than three decimal places,
• divisors that are not single-digit numbers,
• dividends that are not whole numbers.
