Long Division Algorithms Collected in the European Union

 

Long Division Algorithms Collected in the European Union

Paper Presented at CERME  III - Conference of the European Society for Research in Mathematics Education

28 February - 3 March 2003 in Bellaria, Italy

 During my presentation, I asked my colleagues to do a long division problem... I asked them to say the steps out loud in their native language tas they worked the problem.  I then gave them another problem, and asked them to do it out loud in English (the official language of the EU and one that everyone but me spoke as a second or third language). 

I want to thank the participants of the working group on multicultural mathematics for their participation.
