Long Division and Student Struggles

Long division is pretty rough for both students and teachers. The sheer number of steps is confusing for students. They can’t remember what to do next.

Teachers often rely 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!

You can help your students finally understand the procedure with the right method and tools. And it’s simple!

About Differentiated Long Division

Students quickly see the steps as they solve long division problems. In addition, the shapes on these worksheets visually guide students as they match each shape and know where to write their answers.

By simply remembering that “Circles go with circles” and “Squares go with squares,” students gain confidence, leading to success.
