By | Math Music | One Comment

The area of any given triangle equals one half of the base time the height of that triangle or a=1/2bh. This is such an easy formula to remember and students usually do a great job of saying the formula but students seem to forget that they have to divide by two in order to complete the arithmetic. It’s important that students remember that multiplying by a half is the same as dividing by two. Mr. D clearly explains this in his song “Area of a Triangle.”

Distance Rate Time Rap (Music Video)

One of the most important things a teacher can do is help students take ownership of their education. Writing this song and recording the video was very special because 4 of Mr. Q-U-E’s students took pride in choreographing the dance for the video. This led to a new sense of ownership during this lesson and throughout the school year. As often as we can, teachers should find ways to give students jobs or opportunities to take part in the learning process and make them feel like stakeholders in the classroom.
