LYRICS ORDERING DECIMALS

I have two gold coins that are shiny and round.
One’s four hundred five thousandths of a pound;
the other weighs four hundred ten thousandths.
Which is the greater of my investments?

To order them, I looked left to right
and found the first place that was not alike.
One’s greater than zero, the greater piece I hold
is four hundred ten thousandths of a pound of gold.

Line up the decimal points vertically;
look left to right horizontally;
compare the greatest place that’s different;
the greater number will become apparent.

I found two pieces of silver digging in the ground.
One was one hundred two thousandths of a pound.
The other piece was ninety-nine thousandths.
Which one contained the greater contents?

To order them, I looked left to right
and found the first place that was not alike.
One’s bigger than zero, so of the two,
one hundred two thousandths was the greater value.

A number line can help make visible
the place value of any decimal.
Between zero and one, divide it into tenths.
In each tenth fits ten hundredths;
in each hundredth fits ten thousandths;
each place value to the right is ten times less.

This video addresses the following Common Core Standards:

4.NF Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size.

5.NBT Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using greater than, equal to, and less than symbols to record the results of comparisons.

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.

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.
