Description

Learn the mechanics of long division with a touch interface. Drag digits down, slide the decimal into the correct position, and tap to identify repeating decimals.

Say you have 8)256. Drag 8 into ‘25’ and find the correct multiple. Then drag the 6 down and finish the problem!

Learning long division can be enjoyable when you’re not slowed down by pencil/paper or lost without instant feedback.

Master long division by practicing on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch!

Lessons include:
Long Division Basics
Zero up top
Remainders
Decimals
Repeating Decimals
Decimals in the Divisor

Great learning tool

Both my kids breeze through understanding new concepts in math, and both struggle with following the mechanics and keeping steps straight. I did, too, when I was their age. Long division was tough on my older child and we're bracing for the young one now. No longer! He has picked this up as a game and it has allowed us to talk about so many concepts while drilling down the mechanics. He might not yet remember all the steps, but he's ready when they start this in school next year. Incidentally, my oldest, who still needs a reminder once in a while, has picked this with a tinge of reproach -- why did you not get this for me? I strongly believe that many kids assume their brains are not made for math because of a few milestones: multiplication tables, long division, adding fractions. Tools such as these, showing all levels of a concept in one app are key for kids who need context when they learn. The tool is not just a repetitive worksheet, it shows how the steps connect, what the goal of each step is and how the same algorithm works for complicated numbers. I agree, using this as a regular calculator would be sweet, as would be an advanced mode where kids could enter numbers rather than use arrows. That would allow them to connect with their freshly acquired multiplication tables. Are there more such tools? (Long multiplications, factorization, fractions operations, etc)

Great App

As an adult who never understood division (I'm one of those people who's great with language and terrible at math), I'm happy to say that, at 28 years old, I can finally divide! It's the little things in life, you know? I don't know if this app is an effective teaching tool for children but it sure worked for me!

Best division teaching tool I've found.

Sean,
You have done an amazing job in making long division clear and straight forward.
I tutor math for High school and College.
If students can't do long division using actual numbers they will not be able to do synthetic division in algebra.
The reliance on calculators at times hinders students from actually understanding what is being done. This app makes the purpose and process extremely clear.
Thank you,
Ashley
