"The Great Divide" is a four minute, karaoke style music video, that students can sing along with to help learn the long division algorithm. I wrote this song a few years ago based on the "Dad, Mom, Sister, Brother" mnemonic. The song uses the characters, in the context of a long division problem. This would make a good introduction to long division, or another way to reinforce and review the concept.
The video integrates music, math, reading, and animation. You can use it as daily practice, part of a lesson, review of the steps, PE warmup, clean-up song, or just for fun.
The video can be played on an interactive whiteboard, computer monitor, iPod, iPad, etc.
The preview above is at a lower quality than the actual video due to size requirements.
Special note: Windows Media Player needs a free codec pack installed to play mp4 files. I highly recommend the free VLC media player.
