Why Use Music in Math?
In short, because it works! Ever try to alphabetize without hearing the ABC song in your head? I simply can't do it. Music is connected to emotion and emotion is tied to memory.
I have created songs/chants for the multiples of:
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
Students love it, and it has become a fun way to learn a new topic.
This year, we also learned songs for:
Dividing with decimals
Unit conversions of liquid measurement
Year in Review (Mathematics)
Power of 10
Field Day Song
