Long Division


Technology has become an integral part of the modern classroom. By utilizing it effectively and blending strategies to reach different learning styles, it becomes easier to engage more students and create a fun and memorable learning environment. It the video below, you will see Mrs. Harris’ class using a combination of online videos and singing to learn long division. By using the tune of a popular song (“Ho Hey”) by the Lumineers and changing the words, students take a difficult subject and are able to learn concrete principals that can be applied to long division in a fun way. This is just one strategy used to take a hard subject and make it enjoyable for the students. Enjoy!
