My wife and I came up with a plan to have our daughter set some goals and once she accomplished those goals, then she would get rewarded for her efforts. But we did not leave her by herself to accomplish this feat alone. We had to be there every step of the way, encouragement and giving praises to her for a job well done. Just before the end of the school year, her third grade class just started doing division problems, and the look on her face just said it all. Her usual complaints of, "I can´t do this," or "this is too hard," once again was heard throughout the house.
If you had to do the problem now, could you do it without just guessing? Could you prove your answer? How long would it take? Even if you were allowed to do it with a calculator, do you realize that most calculators will not give you an answer with a remainder, so a calculator would only be of limited help anyway? On questions like the one above, anyone who can do division at all will be able to lop off many valuable minutes on tests, and be much more confident of his or her answer, by using just some common sense and a simple technique you can learn.
What happens is that those who mastered their time tables in the second grade will have no problem solving these long division problems. They can fully focus on the process, instead of concentrating on the math facts. Those who struggled with their multiplication tables will most likely also struggle with long division. The ability and motivation gap between students is widening as the years progress.
