Just a post script to our discussion. The culprit in this division topic is the symbol that is used for division, that is, the the dot over and under a bar. . --- . Division is really best represented by a fraction. Thus when we use the symbol above, we should let the students know that we stil have a numerator and a denominator. If you have noticed, the division symbol used in the lower grades dissapears from text books in higher level mathematics.
