My DS knows his multiplication facts inside and out. He knows how to divide, if he sees the line with the dot on the top and bottom. He has trouble with the long division, he understands the remainders, and how to do the problem, but has trouble remembering to put the number in the corrrect space.
For example if the problem is 360/3 he will put the 1 in the right spot, but then when he gets to the next number he will look at it say 3 will go into six 2 times, but instead of the putting the 2 on the top, he will put it underneath where you subtract, then he gets all frustrated. So my question is should I make him do the long division until he has it down, or just let it be since he does know how to divide, he is in 5th grade this year. Thank you.
