Long division and student struggles

Long division can be challenging for both teachers and students.

Students often struggle to remember the steps and multiplication facts.

Teachers are hard-pressed to find ways to help their students process the numerous steps involved. They often rely on tricks, pneumonic devices, posters, and other activities to push students in the right direction.

Common issues students face:

  • Not knowing basic multiplication and division facts
  • Difficulty understanding the steps of the long division process
  • Failure to align their numbers and columns correctly
  • Mess handwriting that causes their numbers to be unreadable

Fortunately, there are simple methods and tools available that can help your students finally grasp hold of this important procedure.

About differentiated long division

Learning the steps of long division can be difficult, but this visual strategy makes it smoother.

By using shapes to guide students through the process, they’ll gain a better understanding of the steps, and mastering long division will feel easier.

Remembering “Circles go with circles” and “Squares go with squares” is all students need to get started.

This differentiated strategy benefits students

These long division practice pages use graphic organizers and help students in a few different ways:

  1. Guide visual learners through the long division process
  2. Alignment of numbers and columns
  3. Neatness and number size – improves graphomotor skills
  4. Essential for visual learners and visual discrimination
  5. Organized writing = organized thinking

Remember – Proper alignment is critical to success with multiplication and long division!
