Many consider division to be the most challenging topic in elementary school.
Long Division is long -- many steps -- Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Bring Down
Short Division uses Mental Math and leaves almost no marks on the paper.
Problems include 70/5 (70 divided by 5)
168 (hours in a week) divided by 7, 8 into 1000, 5280 (feet in a mile) divided by 3 for yards per mile and 365 divided by 7 (52 weeks plus a day).
Short Division is a fun skill that lets students see that they can find easier and faster solutions perhaps leading them to view problems as opportunities.
