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.
No one is truly bad at math, it´s just that most people haven´t been properly introduced to what math really is. It´s not the school subject that districts beat their students over the head with. It´s a wonderful way to explore and describe your world- your world, which you have as much right to as any mathematician.
A great way of explaining division theories in the first instance would be to associate it to day to day life. By making connections to real life scenarios where division would come in useful - like sharing sweets with your friends, you can plant that initial definition in the student´s mind. From here onwards, you can use a range of activities and teaching methods to build upon this. Just like multiplication, division can prove to be somewhat difficult to many younger students, so a good way to continue teaching it is to carry on relating it to real life scenarios.
