Holla SAS or SSS – Math Rap (Music Video)

By | Math Music | No Comments

This was without a doubt one of the most fun videos shot by the Music Notes team. Our director, Mr. P told Mr. D and Mr. Q-U-E that he was going to shrink them and put them on a desk for the video. They had no idea what he was talking about until it was time to shoot. There are a lot of cool things going on in this video that will engage any student that needs to learn how to prove congruent triangles. Check it out!

Fractions – Math Rap (Music Video)

By | Math Music | No Comments

Fractions! This is one of the most feared words in the history of math. If I had to guess I would say that 8 people out of 10 people will say that they don’t like fractions, they don’t understand fractions, or they are not good at fractions. For these reasons I took a conceptual approach to this song. This song was written during my toughest year of teaching and worked miracles for me during my unit on fractions. Check out this clip and I hope you all enjoy!

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.

Music Notes – Polynomial Math Rap (Music Video)

By | Math Music | No Comments

There are students all around the world that are intimidated by math. Especially when the problems appear to be long and ambiguous. For algebra students polynomial problems create fear and anxiety way too often. They are long. They contain variables, exponents, and require application of various math concepts. We as teachers need to break down the barriers that exist among our students before we can start teaching. This song/video about polynomials connects with students at a level they can understand. In the video students see examples of how to deal with peer pressure, have integrity when taking a test, and most importantly how to solve addition and subtraction polynomial problems!

Music Notes – Solving Equations Math Rap (Music Video)

By | Math Music | No Comments

Shooting a one take video in Tampa, Florida before you get on stage to perform sounds good in theory until you get on stage and realized you used all of your wind performing the song on the way to the stage! In spite of the torture I put my body through I had a great time shooting the video and interacting with the students at Ferrell Middle School. The best part of the experience was seeing students cry during some quick classroom visits. This was one of the best times as an educator and motivator.
