PARALLEL OR PERPENDICULAR

(Do Your Ears Hang Low)

Do you see parallel

Lookin’ like a double ‘L’

Lines that never cross

Never would as well

But when two lines come together

Makin’ right angles, we yell...

Perpendicular

Parallel, Lines that never cross

Or Perpendicular, Two lines when they come together

Parallel or Perpendicular

 

QUADRILATERAL DANCE

(Father Abraham)

Quadrilateral has many shapes

Many shapes has quadrilateral

A square is one of them

Congruent sides

And 4 right angles too

Right arm

Quadrilateral has many shapes

Many shapes has quadrilateral

A parallelogram, opposite sides

Both sets are parallel

Right arm, left arm

Quadrilateral has many shapes

Many shapes has quadrilateral

Rectangle’s one of them

The corners square

4 right angles around

Right arm, left arm, right leg

Chorus

Quadrilateral, We do the quadrilateral dance

Let’s do the Quadrilateral,

We do the quadrilateral dance

Quadrilateral has many shapes

Many shapes has quadrilateral

A trapezoid is one, 2 parallel

But the other 2 are not

Right arm, left arm, right leg, left leg

Quadrilateral has many shapes

Many shapes has quadrilateral

Rhombus could be a square

Or diamond too

Must have congruent sides

Right arm, left arm, right leg, left leg FOUR

SIDES! (Chorus)

 

9''S SONG

(Hokey Pokey)

You put your 9, 18,  27, 36,

45, 54 and 63, your 72, 81 and 90

That’s what it’s all about!

 

THE PLACE VALUE RAP

Music by Ben Jacobs, Lyrics by Tim Bedley

The digits, the digits, they each have a name

Memorize ‘em, Understand ‘em is the game

We start at the decimal, to the left we move

Each place is 10 times bigger, multiply ‘em and we prove

The digits, the digits, they fit in so tight

Greater to the left and lesser to the right

Starting at the decimal, sandwiched in between

Zeroes hold the empty places, haven’t you seen?

The digits, the digits, each one means a lot

You can’t leave ‘em out of the place value spot

Reading big numbers each comma’s a word

“Thousand, Million, Billion,” commas, haven’t you heard? Word!

Ones, Tens, Hundreds, Comma

Thousands, Ten Thousands, Hundred Thousands, Comma

Millions, Ten Millions, Hundred Millions, Comma

Billions, Ten Billions, Hundred Billions, Comma

Let’s take it to the right of the decimal point

We’ve got tenths, hundredths, thousandths, ten thousandths

Smaller than a 1 with a T H

 

7''S SONG

(Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

7, 14, 21, 28 and 35, 42 and 49

56 and 63, 70 is the last one

Counting 7’s is so much fun

7, 14, 21, 28, YA! 35, 42, and 49

56, 63 and 70

 

MEAN MODE MEDIAN

Music by Ben Jacobs, Lyrics by Tim Bedley

I have a set of numbers so let’s now begin

The mean is the average, Add ‘em then divide

The mode is most often, and it’s easiest to find

Median is the middle, won’t have any trouble

Just line ‘em up big to little

Pick the number in the middle

Woo, That’s mean, mode, median!

Mean Mode Median (Average, Often, Middle Number)

 

6''S SONG

(Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42 and 48, 54 and 60

 

ANGLES SONG

(Bingo Song)

There was an angle had a name

And Righty was his name-o

Square corner just like so

Square corner just like so

Square corner just like so

And Righty was his name-o

There was an angle had a name

And Acute was her name-o

Closed and cute just like so

Closed and cute just like so

Closed and cute just like so

And Acute was her name-o

There was an angle had a name

And Obtuse was his name-o

Open wide just like so

Open wide just like so

Open wide just like so

And Obtuse was his name-o

 

3''S SONG

(Oh Where has My Little Dog Gone)

Oh where, oh where is 3, 6, 9 12,15, 18, 21

With a 24 brings us 27

Oh where, oh where is that 30

            I’ve learned to skip my 3’s

            I’m good at skippin’ on my 3’s

I’m good at skippin’ 3’s

I’ve learned to skip, it’s on my 3’s, oh ya!

 

TRIANGLE

(Here We Go ''Round the Mulberry Bush)

Here we go ‘round the triangle, triangle, the triangle

Here we go ‘round the triangle

It’s geometry

Equilateral triangle, triangle, triangle

Equilateral triangle

3 congruent sides
