## Georgia Math Teacher Jams With Students.

Middle School teacher jams with students while preparing for state test (CRCT)

Katiebelle Wheelock's insight:

This teacher engages all of the students in such an amazing way! By using a song and dance about math the students are learning about mode, median, and range and in a fun and exciting way.

Kelly Coble's curator insight,

This video is about range and measures of central tendencies (mean, median, mode). Students in this classroom are very enthusiastic while they recall the meaning of mean, median, mode, and range using chants.

Here are the chants that they go through:

"Mode means most"

"Median means middle, order first then find the middle number"

"Range subtract the lowest from the highest number"

After hearing each of these chants I cannot even get them out of my head so I am sure students will not be able to either.  I may use this as a short review for mean, median, mode and range.

## NCTM article Sum of songs: Making mathematics less monotone!

The Sum of songs article written by Lawrence Mark Lesser provides great insite as to how music helps students become more engaged in math classrooms. The article was published in May 2000 by the National Council of Teacher of Mathematics volume 93 issue 5 of Mathematics Teacher.  Lesser dicusses how songs for mathematics can be created using existing popular songs, by using raps, or by creating new lyrics to old tunes. Using songs in mathematics not only engages students in learning but it also motivates them as well as helps with mnuemonics. Lesser provides several examples of songs that could be used in math and notes that even a teacher without mucisianship can integrate songs into their classrooms.  He states, "When their teachers model creative risk-taking by bringing songs or even songwriting into mathematics class, students may give themselves permission to strive for broader and higher levels of mathematics achievement."  The benefits of using song in math far out weight the embarassment a teacher may get from incorporating song into their classroom.

## Graph a Linear Equation - MUSIC VIDEO

An educational video made for Algebra students learning how to graph linear equations.

Found this video created by a teacher to teach linear equations and was going to use it in my class to explain the concept of lines and y-intercepts but didn't find the time to. This video is great becuase it shows how to graph linear equations and also teaches the concept of comparing slopes for parallel and perpendicular lines.
