Abstract

Recent attempts to clarify the subject of long division point to the fact that it is difficult. All data considered, we may say that it is the hardest block in the elementary school curriculum. Long division is especially difficult for the fourth-grader. It is apparent that the multiplicity of skills accounts for much of the learning difficulty. Because there are no infallible rules to follow, long division approaches the problem solving situation. In a sense, every example in long division tends to become a distinct problem in itself.
