Division is one of the hardest parts of all the arithmetic operations and children fear it because it involves a lot of rules, especially long division which is the toughest for primary children. In schools, when we start division as a set of rules/ algorithms to be followed, we fail to inculcate the real meaning of division. The rules of division are a process but understanding the concept needs reasoning and focused inferential work.
