Mathematics is calculation subject expanding towards advanced fields, namely engineering, computer sciences, sciences, and others. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are basic operations in mathematics, but the majority of students are still unable to master the topic. Therefore, this research study has been carried out to determine the implication of 'division wheel' in mathematics operation from teacher to students. Mix methods were applied, in which the quantitative sample

The result from pre-post test indicates an improvement within students, which was influenced by several factors such as students, parents, teachers, and the school environment. Experience teachers in mathematics agree that parents play an important role in shaping their children towards the pros and cons, and the students' attitude and interest will affect their achievement in the subject of mathematics. At the same time, teachers are responsible to acts as educators to educate the students, and the school should prepare a conducive learning environment and good facilities for students to learn. If these factors are successfully reduced, this will improve the students' achievement in the mathematics subject.
