Demonstration of Division

Many  teachers struggle with teaching division to children and I have been thinking about this recently. I think there are a number of factors contributing to this. Firstly,  there is a huge range of level of understanding of the concept of division and secondly the concept itself can be thought of as building on children’s understandings of addition, subtraction and multiplication. The spread of different levels of understanding is likely to make any class “mixed ability” for this topic. There are also difficulties with the written algorithm. Altogether, it is a complicated picture. So I Started to create the division program in Scratch to give demonstration.
