Our closest friends call us NUMBEROCK, while those still getting to know us often call us by our mistaken identities Number Rock or NUMBERROCK.
We left out the extra R because our songs are easy to [R]emember.
Lyrics for Coordinate / Cartesian Plane Song
"Graphing Coordinates & Ordered Pairs Song"
Also known as the Cartesian Plane
To plot the ordered pair two one:
go right two, jump up one, and it’s done.
To plot the coordinates seven ten:
go right seven, up ten, mark it with your pen.
On the x-axis [count to the right]
On the y-axis [count from the ground]
That’s how a coordinate’s point it found.
To plot the ordered pair three five:
go right three, up five, to where you arrive.
To plot the coordinates ten seven:
go right ten up seven, we did it again.
To plot the coordinates nine four:
hop right nine, up four, now one more;
With the ordered pair, zero four:
remain at the origin, count four from the floor.
The coordinates are kind of like clues
telling you where to plot the x and y values,
and when you see them on a questionnaire
they can be called coordinates or an ordered pair.
We plot x first, then y, that’s the order;
always starting from the bottom left hand corner -
that’s the place that we begin,
at zero zero called the origin.
http://www.NUMBEROCK.com is a provider of educational videos for kids which was founded by an innovative 5th Grade teacher who envisioned a new kind of classroom where students got energized for math class. Parents of his students even noticed their children singing mathematics songs around the dinner table well beyond school hours.
Seeing his students so enthusiastic when it was time for math was welcome, to say the least! But the epiphanous moment was when students were singing math songs all-day long like they were in the American Top 40!
Each of these rhythmic music videos from NUMBEROCK can be enjoyed right here on our YouTube Channel. We, hereby, cordially invite you to browse through the full library and hope you'll find that the songs make the maths* remarkably more fun.
We dare to believe that these math songs + videos can actually identify with elementary school children's increasingly finicky perception of what is cool and trendy. While each song is diverse in composition, most fit directly into the modern musical genres that excite young kids: genres such as Rap, R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop and even Reggae!
We're curious to see how these musical math videos will be used now that we have shared them with a broader audience. But whether you use these songs as a rich teaching resource or just to brighten up the school-day a bit, we hope that as our project continues you will eventually find a relevant song for each lesson plan and concept in the math curriculum taught throughout the academic year.
We'll be releasing new songs and videos regularly until eventually addressing all the math skills and concepts that a Common Core Curriculum demands from 3rd Grade to 4th Grade, and even 5th Grade to 6th Grade.
Our main goal is to make teaching and learning math more fun and more interactive. SchoolHouse Rock! has done this in other subjects for us in the previous generations, and many of us still enjoy watching their YouTube Videos which teach us about Government, Science, and English amongst other subjects.
If you dig us, please subscribe in order to enjoy our ever-evolving library of videos and make l̶e̶a̶r̶n̶i̶n̶g̶ rocking numbers more fun and successful! http://goo.gl/3H3bJ6
