Our songs were originally inspired by SchoolHouse Rock!

LYRICS:

Once upon a time, there were nine canaries
On telephone wires, sittin’ down in threes.

Each wire contained one third of the birds,
So three ninths is equivalent to one third.

Drawing 1/3 and 3/9 on a number line
Shows 1/3 equals three parts out of nine.

Therefore, equivalent is the word
That describes 3/9 and 1/3.

Equivalent fractions is the name
For fractions whose values are the same.

If there were four socks to wear,
Then we would say there’d be two in each pair;

And one of the two pairs, we can declare,
Equals two fourths of all the socks there.

Drawing one half and two fourths on a number line
Shows they can be described with an equal sign;

An equal value is what they’re worth,
So we say one half is equivalent to two fourths.

Equivalent fractions is the name
For fractions whose values are the same.

If the numerator and denominator share a common factor,
Then you can divide the top and bottom by the same number.

On top and under, and say with satisfaction,
“We found an equivalent fraction.”

And you can multiply the top and the bottom
By the same number on top and under,

Which is really a fraction whose value equals one,
And through this action we found an equivalent fraction!

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 NUMBEROCKing a worldwide phenomenon!

For those interested in accompanying worksheets, we are providing them through tes.com and teacherspayteachers.com. Teaching and Learning Resources such as Student Workbooks with Answer Keys will also be available AMAZON by the end of the year which will include exercises and fun activities for each of our videos.
