This problem is not really prevalent in the first years at school, where math is relatively easy and considered fun. But after a brief and relaxed honeymoon period, the going will get tough in later years. After the introduction of multiplication tables in the first two school years, students are required to memorize these tables accurately and above all to recite them without thinking. Too many students, however, will rely on their addition skills and will not be able to recite the multiplication facts quickly enough.
Online math software can be an effective way to practice at home, as math programs provide a steady source of new problems for children. Many modern math programs also use adaptive learning techniques to automatically change the types of problems that the child sees to adapt to his or her strengths and weaknesses. Your child will be consistently challenged and encouraged, which should lead to steady improvement. At the same time, past lessons will occasionally be revisited. This prevents your child from forgetting basic concepts that will be used in future lessons, thereby making every subsequent lesson somewhat easier.
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.
