Triangle, tell me your secrets. Are you Scalene, Isosceles, Right, Equilateral, Obtuse or Acute?
There's more where this came from! http://goo.gl/3H3bJ6
Isosceles triangles have two equal sides
like this mountain we’re about to climb;
and since one angle’s over ninety degrees,
an obtuse triangle is what we see.
If you add up every angle,
there are one hundred eighty degrees in a triangle.
If the length is equal on every side,
we say it’s equilateral, like this road sign;
and since every angle’s less than 90 degrees,
an acute triangle it will also be.
If skateboard ramps are your scene,
with three different sides they’re called scalene.
That triangle would also be called right
if a ninety degree angle is inside.
There are two ways to classify triangles:
by their sides and their angles,
like sails out on the high seas
can be right or isosceles.
Or look at the foot of this goose;
it’s scalene and obtuse.
When you break pool balls with a cue,
they’re equilateral and acute.
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
For those interested in accompanying worksheets, we will be providing them shortly through tes.com and teacherspayteachers.com. Teaching and Learning Resources such as Student Workbooks with Answer Keys will be available on AMAZON by the end of the year which will include exercises for each of our videos.
*Math and maths are both acceptable abbreviations of mathematics. The difference is that math is preferred in the U.S. and Canada, and maths is preferred in the England, Ireland, Australia, and most other English-speaking areas around the world.
This video addresses the following standards:
4.G (Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.)
5.G (Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties.)
