Division problems are more challenging than the other mathematical operations children in primary school have practiced. Before starting division, students should be comfortable with their multiplication tables. They will also be using their subtraction skills extensively to solve division problems.
The Importance of Practicing Division Problems
Practicing division problems is the best way to improve kids’ speed and accuracy in solving division problems. With practice, children will begin to find division as easy as any other mathematical operation. This will lead to greater confidence in their mathematical abilities. Self-confidence is a major contributor to good grades. With confidence and good grades, kids are more likely to develop a liking for mathematics that will help them perform better in higher grade levels as well!
Division Problems for Practice
Fortunately for parents, there are plenty of websites with large collections of division problems that can be used to get extra practice. These problems are classified according to the level of difficulty and complexity. For example, there are long division problems, dividing by one-digit numbers, dividing by two-digit numbers, division of fractions, etc. The problems are also classified according to grade (3rd grade division, 4th grade division, 5th grade division). Division worksheets are another great way of practicing division problems. The difficulty level of the division problems a child practices at home should ideally match the difficulty level of the division problems the child is practicing at school. However, if a child needs help solving a type of division problem his/her class has already mastered, it is very important that the child masters this type of problem before moving on to a more difficult one.
Division Word Problems
Since division word problems require reading, comprehension and logical thinking skills in addition to division skills, some kids may find these more difficult than basic division problems. However, as with other division problems, extra practice solving division word problems can improve a child’s skills.
