Today we recorded the two songs that we have been singing lately. I made up a slope-intercept song that is sung to the tune of YMCA. We also did Sweeney’s “Dance Steps to Solving an Equation”.
For the occasion, I was lucky enough to find a really fun Slope-Intercept form t-shirt. I even had a pair of primary colored “chalkboard” Converse hi-tops that actually matched my shirt. Yessss, I was in total “math teacher” mode and loving every minute of it.
I decided to try my hand at iMovie tonight. It was great fun! I started the movie with a picture of my students. The YMCA intro music is rather long so I decided to included the pictures of their finished “Slope Man” projects. Then, comes all of the action! Their “Equation of a Line” song and dance!
I will post our version of “Dance Steps to Solving An Equation of a Line” soon!
The Equation of a Line song is sung to the tune of YMCA. The words are below, watch the movie for the motions.
Y = Mx + B,
Equation of a line!
Y = Mx + B
Puff, puff positive,
