Long division is a repeated process that you continue through until you either run out of values to work with or when you are left with a remainder. The first part of the process is to simply divide the first available value of the dividend by the divisor. The next part is to multiply the divisor by the portion of the dividend that you chose. You would then subtract those value and drop down the remaining digits that are leftover. You will repeat this same process over and over (that's why it called long) until you either have a remainder or you evenly divide the value. When students first see long division, they instantly feel that they have witnessed the super natural. They have come across a math skill that only wizards can handle. It is crucial towards your students’ math career that teachers take their time and provide extra care with the skill. Long division takes place when move from using single-digit to double-digit divisors and beyond. We highly advise teachers and students alike to make certain there is plenty of space available on the page for students.
These worksheets explain how to perform long division. We can't stress enough that this topic has to be gone over many times to insure students completely understand the process. This collection of worksheets and lessons starts out pretty simple, but it builds up as you scroll down the page. You will start with rather simple single- and double-digit quotients with no remainders. We will move on to much larger quotients that should take you some time to complete. Make sure to check your answers carefully here. There are over one hundred worksheets and lessons on this page.
