# Practice Division Through challenging Math Games

Division is one of the four basic operations of math that all kids need to master in order to progress in math. We have introduced division in its most basic form so that kids begin to familiarize themselves with this key operation. Here kids learn the concept of equal shares and grouping. It forms the building block for other mathematical concepts. Basic division is simple to learn and is a useful skill to have. Through our lessons, games and worksheets kids learn and practice simple division and understand the link between multiplication, division and subtraction. Kids are encouraged to brush up their subtraction skills, multiplication skills and review the multiplication tables.

## Applying knowledge

As kids share items between friends, cut food into portions and handle money, they are introduced to the concept of equal shares, early in life. At turtlediary.com instruction is built on what kids know and through relevant and realistic contexts. Here kids learn how division is the ‘reverse of multiplication’. They understand the fundamental root of division which is ‘repeated subtraction’. The aim is that children's mental methods of calculation are practiced and secured, alongside their learning. They become fluent users of the language of division as they learn to understand its meanings, symbols and conventions.

## Practicing skills

It is important for kids to memorize the multiplication tables, so that they can use it for division problems and know the link between the two operations. It will also help them to develop a reasonably quick strategy to figure out the answer. Kids will enjoy the lessons, challenging games and worksheets as they test and improve their division skills. They help kids practice their math skills and develop their logical and reasoning skills. They are specially designed for the young mathematicians of today’s fast changing world.
