# Dividing into Shares

Division in arithmetic is the reverse of multiplication. So it's probably a good idea that a child has understanding of how to multiply numbers before beginning on any real study of division. Hence, we emphasize a child's proper understanding of multiplication before he gets into division. However, in its simplest form, division is sometimes known as 'sharing'. As soon as your child understands how numbers work, it's good to use basic mathematical language in everyday situations. This section ease a child make splitting into equal parts or groups which in turn builds an understanding of fair sharing.

By the end of this program the students will be able to work on sharing the data equally among parts or groups.

Division and sharing of data with decimals and fractions will be initiated.

Partitioning and chunking methods are also followed for better understand of division of bigger numbers.
