You are going to have to decide on what is important here. If learning to multiply is important, then master that and use a calculator to divide. If learning to divide is important, then give them a multiplication chart and a step by step guide on division. I use Does McDonald's Sell Cheese Burgers to teach the steps in long division. Asking students to master multiple processes at one time is a recipe for failure. It's more work on your part, I'm afraid, but you will in time see results.
