Long Division and Student Struggles
Long division is pretty rough for both students and teachers. The sheer number of steps is really confusing for students. They simply can’t remember what to do next.
Teachers often find themselves relying on tricks, pneumonic devices, posters, and other activities to push students in the right direction.
Here are just some of the hang ups that students face:
- Not knowing basic multiplication and division facts
- Confusing the steps of the long division process.
- Not aligning their numbers and columns.
- Messy handwriting – they often can’t read their own numbers!
Armed with the right method and tools, you can help your students finally understand the procedure once and for all. And it’s simple!
