In this lesson, we will learn:

- How to move the decimal place when dividing decimals by powers of 10
- How to understand decimal division using base ten (block) models

- In the last lesson, we learned that
**powers of ten**represent the__repeated multiplication__(or__repeated division__) of the number 10. - We learned that when
**multiplying**decimals by powers of 10, we look at the power of 10**exponent**or the**number of zeroes**it represents to move decimals places to the right. - For
**dividing decimals**by powers of 10, we will__move the decimal to the left__! - When you divide any number by 1, it stays
__exactly the same__—just like multiplying by 1 - When you divide by 10, 100, and 1000:

- If there are no more numbers when moving the decimal place
__to the left__, fill those spaces with**leading zeroes**!

- We can also use
**base ten (block) models**to**divide**decimals by**powers of 10**. There are two different models, depending on what represents__one whole__: - If one whole is represented by a
**hundred block**(square), each time you divide by 10, you turn your model into the next smaller type: from hundred square $\,$→$\,$ ten stick $\,$→$\,$ one square.

- If whole is represented by a
**thousand block**(cube), each time you divide by 10, you turn your model into the next smaller type: from thousand cube [Symbol] hundred square $\,$→$\,$ ten stick $\,$→$\,$ one square.

- IntroductionIntroduction to dividing decimals by powers of 10:a)How can we use base ten (block) models to show decimal division with powers of 10?
- 1.
**Dividing decimals (tenths and hundredths) by using base ten (block) models**

Using base ten (block) models, draw and solve the division statements where one whole is represented by a hundred block (square).a)4.0 ÷ 10 =b)0.5 ÷ 10 =c)3.2 ÷ 10 = - 2.
**Dividing decimals (thousandths) by using base ten (block) models**

Using base ten (block) models, draw and solve the division statements where one whole is represented by a thousand block (cube).a)2 ÷ 1000 =b)1.6 ÷ 100 =c)0.57 ÷ 10 = - 3.
**Decimal division word problem**

Looking at the division statement: 0.26 divided by 10^{3}a)How many decimal place values does the dividend 0.26 have?b)What number does 10^{3}represent?c)How many places does the decimal point move? And in which direction?d)What is the answer to the division question? What is the smallest place value in the answer? - 4.
**Decimal division word problem (working backwards)**

Write the decimal division equation by working backwards to find the original dividend:a)A number is divided by 10 and the result is 23.1 - what was the original number?b)A number is divided by 100 and the result is .039 - what was the original number?c)A number is divided by 1000 and the result is 461.785 - what was the original number?
