How to Teach Long Division - The Dance Craze Way

Meyer Levin School for Performing Arts Classes 622 and 624 perform a Gangnam Style parody teaching long division with decimals. This fabulous video was produced by my niece, Joelle Andres, and her students -- to remember the steps for long division with decimals! Also, thanks to Lee Tovitz Kessler for his help singing and recording, and Adam Berke for his sweet dance moves!

Seeking Collaborative Projects or Partners?

HILITES is brought to you by the Global SchoolNet Foundation and it is moderated BY teachers FOR teachers. HILITES is the OLDEST list of telecollaboration project announcements on the Internet (started in 1985 on the old FrEdMail Network).  We invite you to submit your own project announcement there. 

We don't post questions, announcements, requests for pen pals or sister classes or any other messages which do not support a concrete, multi-lateral learning project that engages students in more than one classroom. We will post surveys and requests for information only if they include activities, products, or outcomes which can also benefit contributing classes.
Because we do so much of the filtering for you, you can feel confident that you're getting the best selection of projects listed anywhere, which means that you won't have to wade through hundreds of extraneous messages to find the project announcements you're looking for.
You can: All projects are posted at the GSN Projects Registry
