Division Learning

Division is introduced as a concept around Grade 2.

Unlike addition and subtracting, multiplication and division are concepts that do not come naturally to many children. Quite a lot of time may need to be dedicated in developing children's understanding of what division is and how it works. Time spent doing this is time well spent, so that children become more confident with their understanding of division before they continue their journey into learning division facts.

Solving division problems that can be acted out and physically shared out is also a very good way to understand division and what it is all about.

The division learning in 2nd Grade underpins future learning of the division facts, and the standard long division algorithm learnt in future grades.

During 2nd grade, children should be learning the following division skills:

  • understand what division is and how it works;
  • solve simple division problems with a context.
