NCTM article Sum of songs: Making mathematics less monotone! | Incorporating Art and Music in the Classroom | Scoop.it

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.

Katiebelle Wheelock's insight:

Music can be incorporated into the classroom on a daily basis in so many simple ways. Music can be used to create a calm setting, motivational setting, as a classroom management technique, teach new lessons or vocabulary, and countless other ways.

I agree! Music is a great tool to introduce new concepts and vocabulary. One of the teachers I work with uses songs to introduce vocabulary and it helps the lesson run very smoothly and helps with memorization even when days pass after the lesson has been taught!
