If you are using Microsoft Word 2007, click 'insert' then go to the 'shapes'

tab.

Go down to the 'lines' section and you will see a shape called 'elbow

connector' If you click this to insert it you will notice that the green

rotate handles will appear... Click on this and rotate the shape around until

it faces the right way for a long division symbol.

If you would like to type in the numbers for your students simply add text

boxes next to the symbol and type your numbers
