Short division

As well as a good recall of division facts , short division requires an understanding of remainders and the ability to calculate the difference between two numbers mentally.

Short division is generally used when dividing by a single digit number, but can be used when dividing by some 2 digit numbers if the pupil is confident in calculating a larger difference mentally.
