Writing and Interpreting Numerical Expressions Song
Grades: 5th Grade - 6th Grade
Check out our ever-growing library of math songs at


Are you interested in learning about reading, writing, and interpreting numerical expressions? If so, this is the perfect song for you. Also included is a brief overview of clue words for word problems and evaluating expressions.

Q. What grade levels do this video target?
A. This video targets learning standards in 5th grade, and also touches on evaluating expressions in the 5th and 6th grade standards. This video also targets standards in the UK from KS4 (Year 5) to KS5 (Year 6).

Q. I'd like to show my students this video but my school blocks YouTube videos. Where else can I watch this video to work around this problem?
A. You can watch this video here; ad-free and child-safe:

Q. Where did you guys come from?
A. Numberock is a project that I, Mr. Hehn, began as a 5th Grade math teacher of 7 years. It came together after years of experimenting with my lessons trying to figure out the best way to help my students retain the math concepts they were learning.

Q. Does Numberock drive real results in the classroom?
A. I knew I found the secret sauce when not only were my students retaining the concepts longer, they were singing the songs outside of the classroom during recess and at home with their parents during dinnertime. The songs were so catchy, my students couldn't get the math songs out of their head!

During testing, I often found my students humming the melodies in order to jostle their memory of a rule or problem solving process. As we've all experienced, there is something about the power of music that allows us to retain information easier and for longer periods of time. Without getting into the finer details of multi-sensory learning and how it often helps the students who most need the help, the power of a catchy song is hard to deny.

Q. I love your songs. Where can I experience more of what NUMBEROCK has to offer?

A. We have additional teaching resources that are always expanding over on our website at
(see clickable link at the top of this YouTube description).

There, you can access our complete library of learning resources which can be accessed free for a full month (and you can cancel anytime). At the end of the month you'll have the opportunity to lock in a price of $4.95/month or $49.95/year for as long as the subscription remains active.

Premium members gain immediate access to video-aligned activities like worksheets, printable posters/anchor charts, task cards, self-graded assessments with grade-book recording + individual student performance reports, printable games, and more.

Our library of resources is growing and getting continually better.

Coming Soon For Subscribers:
1. Number Notes | We're currently working on creating exercises where students will be able to take notes artistically on printable templates featuring characters from the videos.

Research has shown that this will help to integrate their artistic side side of the student's brain with the mathematical side of their brain which helps with long-term memory retention. Our own research has shown us that teacher's who use start using these templates love them! It seems to be a natural fit as we move beyond our unique auditory learning tools into visual learning tools, that when used in concert, cater to the different types of learners that you teach everyday.

Hope to see you at!

Our Writing and Interpreting Numerical Expressions Song for Kids video is aligned with the following Common Core standards:

Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2 as 2 (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
