Teaching Your Child Long-Divison

divisionYesterday, I tried to teach my son long-division. I failed miserably. We went over the steps several times and he got confused. I felt my patience flying out the window, so decided to stop for the day.

I did a bit of research on YouTube and found these excellent videos:

 

This is a good cartoon for younger kids. I like the whale’s southern accent.

Then I found this more serious video. It says nearly the same thing.

I that both videos use mnemonics, which are very similar.

The first uses Daddy, Mother, Sister and Brother
The second uses Father, Mother, Sister and Brother

I have never heard those before, but hopefully my son will find them useful.
