Divide and rule

"Division Rap is one of the longer DVDs in this series, clocking in at 55 minutes. It features DJ Doc Roc and three cartoon characters named Nelson, Michelle and Rappin' Sebastian, who introduce the principles of division by using colorful graphics, spotlights, popcorn, pennies, blocks, and even boom boxes as illustrations.
It covers dividends, divisors and quotients as well as remainders, and also provides a very quick look at long division. It ends with a series of drills, allowing viewers some division practice. A series of songs introduce dividing by one and by the number itself; dividing by two, three, four and so on up to nine. The dividends in each sequence go up to multiples of nine, and are in random order. Each one is then repeated in a different order.
The highlight for me is that it clearly shows how division and multiplication are related, and how you can check the answers to division problems using multiplication tables. The low point again is (unfortunately) the rapping.
Catchy enough to hold a child's attention, this is a handy revision tool for students preparing for end of term exams, or those who just need a little encouragement.

"We first viewed this from our local library. I decided to purchase it since my kids watched it over and over. Very education and entertaining, and I can sit thru it as well."
