Ok, so I will finally admit it! Math is not necessarily the most fun subject you will take in high school. BUT, there are ways to make it fun! I find that showing my students a cute video sometimes jumps starts my class and they may even learn from it. Imagine that! In all seriousness, music is a proven way to help students remember concepts. I like to give my students different songs to listen to or have them make their own song. The video above was made in Westerville South High School in Westerville, Ohio. I don’t know the students or the teacher, but I can bet that these students will never forget SOH CAH TOA! I ask you, the teacher, to step up and make math fun!

Ok, that is FUN! I love the dancing, acting, and how it is based off of a song I’m sure the kids knew and loved. I wonder if the teacher had the students create this video (it certainly looks like it). I can say that if I was a student, I would think this is fabulous and very helpful!

I think the teacher did have something to do with it. If you search for math songs on YouTube, there are a bunch of them. I chose this one because it is, by far, the best.

This is awesome! I wonder if part of the reason I didn’t enjoy math in jr high and high school was because it was boring to me! My teachers weren’t engaging and I wonder if that would have made a difference in how I viewed it.

HA! That was awesome. I would have to listen to it a few times to remember everything. I wonder how long it took them to write the lyrics?

Good question! I don’t know!! I usually finish my curriculum a few weeks early. I think I may try this project this year.

Music wins again! Yay! I am adding this to my curriculum!

I am so glad you liked it!

It was a catchy tune. Great way to learn math. I will pass this video on to the math instructor at my school.

Great! Sharing resources is the most efficient way to do things!

I suppose that sometimes it can be considered boring if you do not have the right approach. BUT, to me, it is always interesting.

That’s a great video. I am Vice Principal at a tri-district summer school right now…I’m going to share this with my math teachers. Thanks

Please do! My Trig students think it is hilarious!
