    Florida Teacher's Long Division Song Gets Students, Internet Hyped
    Nadine S. Ebri

    Learning math isn't always fun, but one North Florida teacher made it just that – and more.

    Nadine S. Ebri, a teacher at La Core Christian Academy in Jacksonville, recorded a video of her students breaking it down to a song about long division, while solving math problems on the board.

    "Divide. Multiply. Subtract. Break it on down and bring it on back," the class sang in unison as students took turns showing off their math and dancing skills.

    According to Ebri, as she taught a lesson on long division, her students turned her instructions into musical problem-solving steps.

    “They turn everything into a song,” Ebri said.

    Ebri posted the video online to give teachers an example of how to make learning math problems a little more exciting.

    The video was shared on Facebook Tuesday night, and has since garnered almost three million views.
