The mere mention of long division may make your kid cringe. But it’s an important fourth grade math skill and your kid *can* do it. Here’s a creative way to help them out with division, or make them faster at it.

The key to conquering long division is lots of repetition and practice, but that doesn’t have to mean all worksheets and scratch paper. Make this hands-on game, and explore the fun side of division.

## How to Play the Division Game

Have your child grab the pencil and a sheet of lined paper and review his multiplication facts by completing the following problems:

• 3 x 2=____
• 4 x 5 = ____
• 6 x 7= ____
• 8 x 9 = ____
• 9 x 9 = ____
• 7 x 4=____
• 8 x 3 = ____
• 5 x 8 = ____
• 9 x 5 = ____
• 10 x 10 = ____

When he’s done, check his answers. If he’s a little shaky on certain multiplication facts, it doesn’t hurt to try a few more problems.

## Time to Make the Math Game

### Step 1

When he’s ready, create the number tiles by writing the following numbers and symbols on the index cards.

• 2 sets of numbers 0-9
• 1 division sign
• 1 equal sign
• 1 set of numbers 10-100
• 1 decimal point

### Step 2

Cut out the tiles and attach the magnetic roll to the back of them.

### Step 3

Use the baking sheet and magnetic numbers to complete the following division problems:

• 250 / 2
• 1075 / 50
• 6728 / 46
• 9258 / 71
• 3478 / 62
• 8120 / 89
• 9671 / 34
• 754 / 12

Remind him to use the decimal point when needed.

When he’s done, help him check his answers.

As he gets more confident, encourage him to try problems with larger numbers.

No problem: just make plus sign, minus sign, and multiplication signs, too. And don’t miss even more math games for kids.
