as far a PolynomialDivision is concerned, it is easy to create a function
or package or whatever from
PolynomialQuotient and PolynomialRemainder that does exactly that.  It is a
exercise to extend your knowledge of Mma.

I agree the learning curve is steep, initially; however the learning curve
out for any math, science or engineering course that you take latter on. 
also gives you a definite edge professionally.

so there is a huge payoff.
