I am not sure where it occurred but somewhere along the way too many of us have
forgotten that the long division algorithm is NOT a logical process for solving
long division problems, but a shortcut.  Here is a link to an incomplete script
which shows a possible evolutionary process as to how it came about:

Script</a>

Works best with 2 or 3 digit divisors and 4 or 5 digit dividends.

Just teaching the algorithm does not ensure comprehension.

Please remember, this script is currently incomplete.
