This video is dedicated to all my students past, present and future. I hope you always keep learning and growing.

This is my fourth annual Geometry Rap (you can find the other 3 all on YouTube). It all started when I gave my students a chance to earn some extra credit by writing a math rap or song parody. To help get them motivated I said I'd write and perform one too. It was such a hit that it has become a tradition now, and it's always a lot of fun for everyone. This year I created a full blown music video (my first real attempt at video production)- so I really hope you like it.

Thanks to my wife for her support and feedback in watching this over and over during the editing process. It wouldn't be half as good without her input.

I'd also like to thank two of my students who you will hear singing the "hooks" in between verses. The 1st verse features "Epic Diva" Bridgette, and the 2nd verse is "Totally Ninja" Kim (you can also catch some of Kim's artwork scrolling by). Thanks to both of you- I couldn't have done this without you.

We in Geometry,

that's the only place to be

Working on these mysteries,

not what they appear to be

Hail outta Northport

Strong Island NY

Proofs are never too short,

so we get our point across

When I was a youngster,

never thought that math was cool but

Then I went to college,

found that I had been a fool

Man this stuff is everywhere,

you just can't escape it

If the truth is what you seek,

then here's how you obtain it

Triangle congruence,

stuff is fundamental

When we get to doubles,

I'll try to be gentle

Then there's quadrilaterals,

Rectangles are one of those

Proofs using their properties,

we are learning to compose

A rhombus like a square,

but its got a little lean to it

Mr. A's class, don't understand

unless you been though it

I be spiked out-

I can prove most anything

tell by my attitude, that I'm most definitely from

Northport... Geometry is what we are doing- we're working with theorems

Now you're in Northport... Geometry will empower you, yes math can inspire you

let's here it for Northport- Northport- Northport....

Catch me with my boy Mr. Winter up in 202

Be there with Perico ya know math's what we like to do

You should know I love math, but I ain't obsessed though

also like to kick it flying kites and hanging with my boo

Welcome to the math wing

High School's where we turn it up

Algebra Geometry and Trig

but still it's not enough

Calc I, AB, BC, holla back

People at this level know that math is cool that's just a fact

2 thousand- students populating campus

thinkin it's a pity some of ya'll won't get this

Me I gotta plug every Monday Mathletes

presenting at math fair but only for the elite

Three dice C-lo, working probabilities

Got us past Euclidean, Rest in peace Lobachevski

Fundamental Theorem, algebra and calculus

Knowledge is eternal

I'm from the High School that's

Northport... You know we're learning mathematics, developing concepts

Now you're in Northport... Mathematics it will empower you, yes math can inspire you

let's here it for Northport- Northport- Northport....

Math is blinding

Kids need guiding

So they can reach their potential

Always keep rising

Don't become a casualty

Studying math casually

Give it everything you got

Don't seek the easy way

Caught up in the math now

Wow you never realized how

Everything's connected

math is everywhere you see it now

shapes and equations

you're seeing relations

governing behavior complex systems are amazin

Euclid took us on a trip,

Propositional logic

Notions of infinity hard at first

but then of course they stick

1600's to the next level, calculus

You gotta put some time in here

Before you join the rest of us

After High School

graduate and go to college

Don't forget the things you learned

Or how you were inspired

Maybe you'll remember me, I know I won't forget you

But if I did my job the most important things will stay with you true...

Tried out the canvas response option on @SpiralEducation & it's so awesome! Add text or drawings AND annotate an image! #R10tech

Using @SpiralEducation in class for math review. Student approved! Thumbs up! Thanks.
