Dividing is the process of splitting a number into equal parts. When you divide one number by another, you are finding out how many times the second number can fit into the first number.

To divide whole numbers, you can use long division or short division. In long division, you divide the dividend (the number being divided) by the divisor (the number you are dividing by) and then write the quotient (the answer) above the division bar. In short division, you use the division symbol and write the dividend inside the curve and the divisor outside the curve.

When dividing decimals, you should align the decimal points and then perform the division as if the decimals were whole numbers. After dividing, you may need to add trailing zeros to the quotient to make it a decimal again.

To divide fractions, you can use the following steps: 1. Keep the first fraction the same. 2. Change the division sign to a multiplication sign. 3. Flip the second fraction (take the reciprocal). 4. Multiply the two fractions together.For example, to divide 2/3 by 1/4, you would keep 2/3 the same, change the division sign to a multiplication sign, flip 1/4 to get 4/1, and then multiply to get 2/3 * 4/1 = 8/3.

Grade 6 Curriculum Focal Points (NCTM)

Algebra: Writing, interpreting, and using mathematical expressions and equations

Students write mathematical expressions and equations that correspond to given situations, they evaluate expressions, and they use expressions and formulas to solve problems. They understand that variables represent numbers whose exact values are not yet specified, and they use variables appropriately. Students understand that expressions in different forms can be equivalent, and they can rewrite an expression to represent a quantity in a different way (e.g., to make it more compact or to feature different information). Students know that the solutions of an equation are the values of the variables that make the equation true. They solve simple one-step equations by using number sense, properties of operations, and the idea of maintaining equality on both sides of an equation. They construct and analyze tables (e.g., to show quantities that are in equivalent ratios), and they use equations to describe simple relationships (such as 3x = y) shown in a table.
