How should you teach your child to divide?
Start by teaching your child the multiplication tables as soon as possible.
Set a target of learning all of them up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 3.
Then explain to your child that dividing is simply a way of counting up in that number.
For example, 72 divided by 6 is 12 because 12 x 6 or 6 x 12 makes 72.
When you child has understood this concept start to teach them the bus stop method or short division.
