Hello,

I am trying to help my daughter understand division. I have always beeen "maths anxious" so i would like to help her avoid that.

Some web sites posit division as being the "reverse of multiplication" i.e. multiple subtractions. Some posit division as "separation into pieces".

My understanding is that in the first instance 22/2= 11 (i.e. 11 groups of 2s) but that in the second instance 22/2= 11 (i.e. 2 groups of 11s).

I would really appreciate some advice on which method and therefore which "visual image" I would use to provide the best foundation for a child's growing understanding of math.

Thank you so much.
