# Division lesson plans for the year in one hour

Teaching division isn’t easy. It requires practice from the students and patience from the teacher. There are always students who don’t get it the first time so you need more examples. Maybe students are limited in English so you need some explanations in Spanish. We’ve got you covered with several hours of games below – two of which are free – six videos, 4 PowerPoint presentations of worked examples and one ready-made complete lesson plan.
