Introduction To Division

Early Childhood Education Programs

Tips#1: Read Together Every Day
Read to your child every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close together. Bedtime is an especially great time for reading together.
Tips#2: Give Everything A Name
You can build comprehension skills early, even with the littlest child. Play games that involve naming or pointing to objects. Say things like, "Where's your nose?" and then, "Where's Mommy's nose?" Or touch your child's nose and say, "What's this?"

Introduction of Division:

Division is the inverse of multiplication in the arithmetic operation. It determines the how many times one value is consist of another. It can be expressed as x/0.where x is the dividend.

Depends upon the mathematical setting a well defined value can be assigned to the expression. We write division of two numbers as a/b, where a is the dividend and b is the divisor. The division of two rational numbers, where the divisor is not equal to zero, results in another rational number. When we divide two real numbers and the divisor is not equal to zero we get another real number.

The division of two complex numbers results in another complex number, but the divisor is not equal to zero. The polar form is used to express the division of complex numbers in simple form.

Dividend / Divisor = Quotient

Properties of Division

Basic properties of division: A number which is divided by it is equal to 1. A number which is divided by 1 is equal to the number itself. Zero divided by anything is equal to zero. It is known as zero property. Any number divided by 0 is undefined.

Tips#3: Say How Much You Enjoy Reading Together
Tell your child how much you enjoy reading with him or her. Look forward to this time you spend together. Talk about "story time" as the favorite part of your day.
Tips#4: Be Interactive
Engage your child so he or she will actively listen to a story. Discuss what's happening, point out things on the page, and answer your child's questions. Ask questions of your own and listen to your child's responses.

Three important properties of division: When we multiply a number and then divide the product by the same number, it does not change. Or we can divide the number and get the same number by multiplying the quotient. When we multiply the dividend and divisor by the same number the quotient wills not change. But the divisor should be the whole number. If the dividend is a composed factor we can divide the any of the factors.

Division algorithm consists of integers, rational numbers, real numbers, complex numbers, polynomials, matrices, calculus etc.

Special Cases

Some other properties of division: Division of right identity element: This identity of an element is obvious. Here 3/1 is not equal to 1/3. Division over addition for right distributive property. (8+2)/2= (8/2) + (2/2) = 4+1=5

Conceptually, division describes two distinct but related settings. Partitioning involves taking a set of size a and forming b groups that are equal in size. The size of each group formed, c, is the quotient of a and b. Quotative division involves taking a set of size a and forming groups of size b. The number of groups of this size that can be formed, c, is the quotient of a and b.

Tips#5: Read It Again And Again And Again
Your child will probably want to hear a favorite story over and over. Go ahead and read the same book for the 100th time! Research suggests that repeated readings help children develop language skills.
Tips#6: Talk About Writing, Too
Draw your child's attention to the way writing works. When looking at a book together, point out how we read from left to right and how words are separated by spaces.
