This worksheet prepares learners for easy understanding of how and why long division works as a standard algorithm. It makes reaching the finishing line easy every time for independent learning, homeschooling or classroom teaching.
Many children meet long division before they are ready to understand it. Long division is different from the standard calculation methods for addition, subtraction and multiplication. When they learn addition, subtraction and multiplication, the standard algorithm is worked from right to left. But, in long division we work from left to right.
Division 1 worksheet provides exercises to practice division by partitioning the number to be divided. For example: how to solve 78 ÷ 3 by partitioning? The times table of 3 shows that 3 x 10 is 30. So, partition 77 as 60 + 18. If the child knows their times tables fluently: 60 ÷ 3 = 20 and 18 ÷ 3 = 6 and 20 + 6 = 26, so the answer is 26.
Division 1 worksheet teaches division of a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number with
- partitioning 2-digit numbers
- practicing the times tables.
In a nutshell: Confidence breeds more confidence! And, hands on practice in dividing does wonders for confidence and gradual skills development. Whether homeschooling, working independently or in classroom teaching, this math worksheet will make learners win, and brighten the day.
