# How to do Long Division – Four Digits Divided by One (4,224 ÷ 8) with Online Tutoring in Math

I have designed, HOW TO DO LONG DIVISION in a manner that ensures all children can be successful when dividing large numbers.  This is the second article in a series of seven.  Each article is a complete lesson on division.  If you have not read the first article, you can click here to read why my strategies are so very successful.  In this second article we will focus on four digit numbers divided by one digit numbers.  Every problem has its own video tutorial, offering immediate online tutoring for your child.

When you complete this article, click here to move to the next lesson, How to do Long Division – Three Digits Divided by Two.

The photo below show an example of how my students use area division to solve problems with a four digit number divided by a one digit number.  Notice that the first step is to write the “counting by the numbers” above their problem.  This strategy is specifically designed for children who do NOT know their multiplication facts.  My goal is for children is to memorize their multiplication facts.  However, until they know all their facts, they need a strategy.  Counting by the numbers is the easiest strategy to learn.  Therefore, I have added counting by the numbers to the end of each and every video.  Children who do not know all their multiplication facts should watch and count with me at the end of each of these videos until they can count by all the number on their own.  Repetition of this strategy will help in all areas of math that require multiplication.  Once a child knows all their multiplication facts, they can stop the videos after the problem is solved and before Counting by the Numbers begins.

I have scaffold the problems in each lesson.  The first problem is a “Watch Me” problem.  The second is a “Work with Me” problem.  All the rest are “On Your Own” problems.  For more information about the scaffolding process, visit the first article on How to do Long Division.

*If your child continues to struggle, they should complete the “On Your Own” problems as a “Work with Me” problem.  I have a number of students with gaps in their learning and others with a variety of  learning disabilities.  I have had incredible success, by having those students complete 5 to 7 problems within each lesson as a “Work with Me” problem.  They play a bit of the video, then pause it  and copy, then watch a bit more, pause it and copy.  My students Play – Pause – and Copy until the entire problem is solved.  This is like having a personal tutor working through each and every problem with your child.  Every one of my students who has used this strategy has passed the Common Core Proficiency Exam.

You own a Peacock farm.  Your favorite thing to do each morning is to look across the farm and see the muster of peacocks.  Muster is the noun we use to describe a group of peacocks.  As you know, Peacocks have the image of eyes on their tail feathers.  If a predator wants to eat them the peacocks will flash their tail feathers, and the predator will think that there are a lot of animals looking at him, so he will get scared and run away.
