Dividing a number by a power of ten

Students learn about dividing a number by a power of ten.  Most able students divide by 0.1, 0.01 and 0.01.  Less able students are encouraged to use a place value table to divide whole numbers by 10 and 100.The lesson begins by recapping how to multiply by 10, 100 and 1000 using place value.  The part goes on to demonstrate how to use the place value table to divide by a power of ten.  At the end of the lesson students are challenged to create six divisions by arranging a group of cards.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to divide an integer by 10, 100 and 1000 using the place value table.
  • Most students should be able to use the place value table to divide numbers by a power of ten.
  • Some students should be able to multiply and divide by 0.1, 0.01 and 0.001.
