Learn Long Division with “Long Division” App

  1. LongDiv“Long Division” App

Long Division by Esa Helttula app is what your child needs if he/she is learning long division and needs practice. Long Division app allows for step by step learning of long division algorithm.

The app allows for changing of divisor and dividend digits change, allowing of remainders and decimals. It’s ideal.

With my students I write 5 steps on the board or on their paper as they are learning long division.

  1. Divide                                
  2. Multiply
  3. Subtract
  4. Bring Down
  5. Repeat if needed 

As you teach your child long division, have him/her say the steps out-loud. Words and images work together to transfer learning to long term memory (also known as dual coding theory).
