Student Who Needs Help Division

I have repeated practice support for subtraction and multiplication, but not division. I am looking for ideas for my students still struggling with old fashioned "long division," dividing three-digit numbers by a one-digit divisor.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Have you tried teaching the area model?

Iím sure there are a ton of worksheets using this model to be found as well.

Here's a site that will walk your student through long division. If you check the box for help, it will even prompt the student with questions.

I use the box method with students who struggle. It's the method my mom was taught back in the 1930s and is so much easier.

Box the 3 digit number in a traditional example format problem. Divide into the first digit. Record quotient as normal above digit. Multiply and record underneath as usual. Subtract. Bring that digit up in front of the digit in the next box. This is instead of bringing the 2nd digit down. Repeat until complete.

I like this method better because it keeps the problem "smaller" and focused on each box.
