Division, Some Notes on the History of Division Procedures

**** An Updated version of this post is available which includes some notes on Notation and other changes.

Abstract: A dozen years ago I began researching and collecting information to construct on line page with the origin, etymology and history of many of the mathematical terms and their etymology. Over the years I collected a little over 1000 of them. In the last few years I have not revisited and corrected the pages as much as I should have, but I have decided to pull out a couple of the major ones that might be interesting, and include them in my blog.. I hope you enjoy.
