# Division with Decimal Numbers

### Division with Decimal Numbers

Students learn how to perform division with decimal numbers using the box method.  Less able students use a timetables grid to help with arithmetic.  More able find missing lengths when given the area or volume of a shape.The start of the lesson is used to recap multiplication.  Later, students are taught how to divide with decimal numbers without a remainder.  Throughout the lesson students are encouraged to estimate solutions.  In the plenary, students find the mean average of five decimal numbers.

### Differentiated Learning Objectives

• All students should be able to divide an integer by a single digit.
• Most students should be able to use the box method to divide with decimals without leaving remainders.
• Some students should be able to use significant figures to approximate division.

#### How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]

#### Calculations with Percentages

Students learn how to find a percentage of an amount using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they use decimal multipliers to find a percentage change and calculate a simple interest in financial mathematics. This topic follows on from Fractions, Decimals and Percentages and takes place in Year 8 Term 5. Calculations with Percentages […]

#### Proving Geometrical Relationships using Algebra

Back in May 2017 maths teachers around the country eagerly awaited the first exam for the new GCSE Mathematics syllabus.  Proving geometrical relationships using algebra featured at grade 9.  In Paper 1 of Edexcel’s test paper the last question of the higher tier looked like this. Edexcel wrote about student’s performance on this question in […]
