Teachers often assume that since they spent a few minutes showing the class how to do a long-division problem, that every student in the class now knows how to work a long-division problem. Not necessarily true, and a good teacher will follow up on every student to make sure he or she understands each concept before adding new ones. I have always believed that most kids can learn just about anything if they are exposed to it using familiar surroundings and techniques and encouraged to proceed at their own pace.
If students miss out on a core subject matter, it will be very difficult to catch up. Long division is a good example of this. The core of long division is simple basic multiplication and subtraction as studied in the first and second grade. The only new thing is the process, or structure, of long division.
There aren´t many students, teachers and parents who don´t dread having to deal with long division problems. But it doesn´t have to be that way. Even though most teachers use the same old, tired algorithm to teach long division, there are shortcuts and especially good ways to check the answers that those teachers should be exploring.
