    Subject:    Math                                          Level:   6           

    Monday--Day 2

    Objective(s): Dividing Decimals by Decimals

    Instructional Strategies: 

    • Understand that multiplying divisor and dividend by the same power of ten does not change their quotient.
    • Calculate quotients of decimals by multiplying the numerator and denominator by an appropriate power of ten and finding the quotient of the resulting whole numbers.

    Thursday--Day 5

    Objective(s): Truth and Equations

     Instructional Strategies: 

    • Represent problems in context with equations of the form x+p=qand px=q.
    • Understand that an equation can be true or false.
