Calculus Class Playlists for +C and U-Substitution

I am one of those annoying people who sing everything. I can’t help it, and I can’t stop it. As such, I also love to play music in class. Kids really like it as well, and I love it when they are working hard and singing along. It also seems to help my more talkative classes focus. “Music soothes the savage beast.” 

+C Playlist:

Some calculus concepts can be easy to forget, especially adding C. So, I created a +C Spotify playlist full of songs with anything that sounded like the letter C in them, see, sea, me,… As we first learn about why we need to add C, I play, and SING, these songs, loudly emphasizing the C. I also change lyrics when necessary, as in, “Don’t you, forget about C!”  Because I am crazy. 

U-Substitution Playlist:

I also have a U-substitution Spotify Playlist, that I save until we get to Integration. But, you could use this as early as Algebra 2 if you wanted to!

 

Songs to Sing in the Shower is a great Spotify playlist for class for any day. I did not make it, but I really like it. It’s fun, and kids sing along to almost every song. 

I am always looking for great songs to add to these playlists, so if you have one, please add it to the comments!
