About 60% of teachers say motivation, or lack thereof, is the biggest problem they notice in their students. Research proves that music has powerful effects on the brain and can drive students’ emotions. Using motivational songs in the classroom can lower students’ affective filter and allow you to drive them to the land of academic success.

Area of a Triangle – Math Song (Music Video)

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.”

There aren’t too many things in life that are more engaging than a puppet. Hey just look at the infinite success of Kermit the frog! I’ve used puppets in my teaching since my days as a student teacher and things didn’t change just because I started teaching middle school. I like to use at least one puppet video for every math DVD that I do. This math song teaches students how to calculate unit rate with some really cool puppets that are sure to engaged students of any age.

If you had to guess, what percentage of k-12 students would you say cannot tell time on an analog clock? I’m not exactly sure what the number is, but I know more of my middle school students could not read a traditional clock than students that could. Yes, digital clocks are everywhere, but that does not mean students should not learn the skill of reading an analog clock? Check out  this time song and see the power of using educational music to teach academic skills.

Mr. D and Mr. Q-U-E team up to teach students how to multiply by 12. This song is amazing and the video is even better! We love this video because it was shot at our annual “Back To School Jam” benefit concert. As you will see in the video, students, teachers, and parents all enjoy Music Notes’ concerts. We had a great time shooting this video and really enjoy teaching our youth with great math songs!

Quadratic Formula – Math Song (Music Video)

By | Math Music | No Comments

Everyone has a first love. Mine was graphing lines until I learned about quadratics. Call me crazy, but I just love a graph with curves! Ok ok jokes over, but I really do enjoy graphing quadratics a lot more than linear equations. Maybe it’s just the quirky teacher in me. After I wrote the “Quadratic Formulove” math song my students began to fall in love with the process almost as much as me. I also got a few of my 8th grade algebra students to join in on this fun math music video. I just love brainwashing students into loving math!

Graph a Line – Math Rap (Music Video)

By | Math Music | No Comments

I’ve have a great opportunity to give back to the community where I was raised. I’m blessed because one of the most fulfilling performances I’ve done was captured on film and turned into a video. This video titled, Graph A Line helps students remember the concepts of ordered pairs and to remember the defined method to graph a line.

My hometown Carson, California hosts a teen summit every year and I had the honor of speaking and performing at this event. Today students and parents around the neighborhood still stop me and tell me how much they are motivated by my math songs or how much the songs help their children. What a great feeling!

Slope Intercept – Math Rap (Music Video)

By | Math Music | No Comments

The song that started it all! This is the concept I was teaching when my students started begging me to rap for them. “This is boring!” “Can you rap for us?” “You look like Kanye West!” These were the cries of my students for weeks before I agreed to give math rap a try. I’m so thankful for this experience because now I’m able to reach students in ways I never imagined.
