# Division Overview

This is where math starts to get a little tricky. Division is about breaking something into many pieces. You have probably heard the word divide all over the place. You divide your candy with your friends. You divide pieces of a turkey at dinner. You start with one amount and wind up with smaller pieces.

# Just Like Fractions

This section will move right into the fractions area because fractions are basically a different way of writing a division problem. When you get to advanced math in school, you may even write out division problems that look like fractions. Here's a tease... You will learn that the fraction 1/4 has the same value as one (1) divided by four (4). As you start learning about decimals you will quickly know that 1 divided by four is 0.25. And the value is known as one quarter.

There many ways to say the same thing in math. It's like a language. Many terms describe the same value, but they all mean the same thing. Black, negro, noir, nero, and preto all mean the same thing to different cultures but they all describe the color black.
