Item description for Division Unplugged: Fun Songs Teaching Division by Emad Girgis, Sara Jordan & Mark Shannon...
Overview This musical approach to math was created by teachers and its a great alternative to heavier rock and rap programs. It uses an interactive approach. The multiplication and division kits are especially designed to feature and review skip counting in the chorus of every song.
Publishers Description Catchy melodies, drill and student involvement make basic division facts with divisors to 9 very memorable. This album was put together with a great deal of thought. Each of the 9 melodies is different, very musical and very catchy. These songs drill division facts but also use skip counting as a form of review. The chorus of every single song is actually skip counting. So, not only do students learn all of their division facts, they can count by 6's, 7's, even 9's with no problem This kit is perfect for earlier grades as a primer and for later grades as a resource and review. This is a collection of 9 teaching songs, plus a complement of 9 self quizzing tracks. The lyrics/activity book (which may be reproduced by the teacher for classroom use) includes over a dozen activity sheets.

Reviews - What do customers think about Division Unplugged: Fun Songs Teaching Division?
A Wonderful Resource May 16, 2000
I recently purchased and tried Division Unplugged as a remedial resource for my grade five students. I found it to be thoughtfully constructed and that the songs were quite musically done. Each song not only teaches division facts, but reviews them by reminding the student of the multiplication tables. The choruses of each of the songs also incorporate skip counting, so even the slowest of students is able to make the connection between multiplication facts and division questions. Great job. I would recommend it to anyone.
Division Unplugged Apr 13, 2000
I was a little disappointed with the content of division unplugged. Learning how to count by 2's and 5's is all that I learned from listening to the CD. Each song sounded exactly the same. There was a plus to this purchase though, the brain teasers at the end of the booklet were helpful.
