I teach dividing by decimals ... otherwise they will never see it! PI's for operations with decimals stop at 5th grade.

Subject: Dividing BY decimals

Trying to help out a 5th grade teacher...
Does anyone know if they are responsible to teach dividing BY decimals in Grade
. I just looked through the PI's and Sample Tasks and it's vague...
Thanks in advance
