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.
You can also try and teach division just like you would teach the multiplication tables, through division worksheets. By teaching ´5 times 2 is 10´ and ´5 times 3 is 15´, you can reverse it and let your students learn by saying things like ´10 divided by 5 is 2´ and ´15 divided by 5 is 3´. Of course, this isn´t applicable to much large numbers when it comes to learning to divide by larger numbers, but it´s a good start.
Math is one subject that has had negative feedback because people tend to describe it as difficult and hard to learn. Teaching elementary math with ease is very challenging for any teacher but quite rewarding when you see your students enjoying math and working on their math projects with ease.
