Long Division

Long Division

Long division is a concept your child will need to know in preparation for SATs exams.

Do be aware of modern teaching methods in long division. Try not to teach your child methods you used at school. It could confuse them.

Below is how the children have been taught...

SCRATCHPAD

 

Working out multiples of two digit numbers can be difficult. Using the scratchpad technique helps the children to work these out efficiently. 

 

1) Write down the number e.g 34

 

                 3          4

               30    +    4 = 34

               60    +    8 = 68

               90    +   12 = 102

             120    +   16 = 136

             150    +   20 = 170
