# Multi-Digit and Fraction Computation

## Objective

Divide numbers with decimal quotients. Divide decimals by whole numbers.

## Common Core Standards

### Core Standards

?

• 6.NS.B.2 — Fluently divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm.

• 6.NS.B.3 — Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.

?

• 4.NBT.B.6

• 5.NBT.B.6

• 5.NBT.B.7

## Criteria for Success

?

1. Represent remainders as decimals in division problems.
2. Understand how the standard algorithm (long division) can be extended to include decimal quotients and decimal dividends.
3. Apply the standard algorithm for division to solve problems.

## Tips for Teachers

?

• Dividing multi-digit decimals is a fluency expectation in sixth grade. Lessons 11 and 12 demonstrate how the standard algorithm for division can be applied to problems with decimals in the dividend, divisor, or quotient. This lesson focuses on decimals in the quotient or in the dividend; students will see decimals in the divisor in Lesson 12.
• The following tools or materials are useful for this lesson: large graph or grid paper for computations, calculators to check answers.
