    We will use decimal grids to explore finding a quotient.  We will divide decimals with the understanding that the placement of the decimal in the quotient is determined by the placement of the decimal in the dividend.  We will divide a decimal by a decimal by first making the divisor a whole number (Multiply in powers of 10), then we will mulitply by the same power of 10 in the dividend to keep the problem equivalent, and finaly divide using standard algorithm and move decimal up to quotient.  

    We will learn the rhyme;  When there is a decimal on the side, you slide, slide, and raise it to the roof, to help us divide a decimal by a decimal.
