"The Math apps by Esa Helttula allow students to practice and reinforce the specific computation strategies taught in class, with as much or as little scaffolding as necessary. I am so glad to have come across this great educational tool!"
"The Long Division app is very clear and very useful."
Education Apps Review, www.iear.org:
"This app is fantastic!!
My third graders loved learning with this app! It has infinite enriching and differentiating possibilities, as the students can select easier or more challenging types of problems."
"Be still my beating heart! My 5th Grader is learning long division and sometimes working through the problems step by step is confusing to her. So you can imagine how excited I AM with this app, named Long Division, that translates long division into a color coordinated step by step process and has a number key pad so that the student can input their numbers every step of the way. Then, the numbers slide from the problem, into their proper place in the problem. Very visual and memorable!"

The Long Division Method
In arithmetic, long division is the standard procedure suitable for dividing numbers. The method breaks down a division problem into a series of easier steps.
Easy to Use
The Long Division app allows the user to solve a long division problem step by step and animates all the steps. In the steps the user will divide, multiply or subtract. The correct answer will fly to the right place. If the user presses the wrong button the answer will appear above the keyboard but it will not move.
The App has the Following Settings:
- The dividend can have up to 5 digits
- The divisor can have 1 or 2 digits
- Remainders can be allowed or disallowed
- The dividend can have decimals
- The dividend can have leading zeroes
- The current operation for each step can be hidden
- The operands for the current operation can be highlighted
- There are 3 different themes: black, white and gold
- The speed of the animations can be set
- Numbers to divide can be generated randomly or entered manually
