(Parody of Do The John Wall by Troop 41)

Westerville South High School, Westerville, Ohio

Yeaaaaaahhhhh!

Ha-ha-haaa! Westerville, what it is?

What up South? Ha-ha Yeah!

Hey we gonna show this class how to do the quad solve

All you gotta do is...(D Schizzo) just flex on these students...(Mr. Winna')

And watch us solve (Dr. Murph)

(Chorus)

South be the school where we like to do the dance

Flex to the left get some pencils in ya hands

We do it for our school and

We do it for the grades

But to solve these quads

Boy you gotta do the dance

Everybody do the quad solve, quad solve,

quad solve, quad solve, quad solve, quad solve,

quad solve, quad solve,

(Verse 1: Dr. Murph) FACTORING

Everybody listen, pay attention class

We're bout to solve quads, so that ya'll can pass

We'll teach you 3 methods, x is what we're after

To start off first watch "Teach Me How To Factor"

I'm trying to tell em, ya'll got to try this

If factorin won't work for you we'll go down our list

First break it down into two quantities

They're linear factors, we solve em with ease

The zero product property comes into effect

Each piece should equal zero and then you solve for x

Ha there's a shortcut, if speed is what you want

The opposite of the back, divided by the front

And if x was any part of...a Greatest Common Factor

The answer to that piece is zero, believe me I'm a doctor

Mixing math with music, we helping students learn

Keep your minds open, this class is not adjourned

(Chorus)

(Verse 2: Mr. Winner) COMPLETING THE SQUARE

Yeah I teach it, but factoring aint how I preach it

We bend it and send it, but at times the factors just don't mend it

But don't you worry...we got another way to solve it

Complete the square baby, that's the way that I dissolve it

Hang with me in my class and your good grades will not diminish

Here's the lesson by my boy...he will get you to the finish

Quadratic thinking, get your terms all high to low

Divide everything by A, you know that is how I roll

Move C to the other side

Cut B in half (square it) add this to both sides

Trinomial perfect square, you just have to recognize

This will simplify when you go and Radicalize

Ha yeah Stand tall, yeah we call this the quad solve

All I do is solve, I get it and I can solve em all

My boy's all finished up, he be prime time

At South we teach em well, mixin it with ill rhymes

(Chorus)

(Verse 3: D Schizzo) QUADRATIC FORMULA

Oh yeah we solving, solving until we falling

If you get to a problem we can help if you be stalling...

The quadratic formula, it is here to make your day

Whole classroom do the dance, cause this is the third way

Better take out your calc, cause some of these be insane

You gotta plug and chug, and soon you'll make it rain

First you find, A, B, C and write it down on em

Now plug em in, put parentheses around on em

Fix up that discriminant sittin in the back on em

It'll be imaginary or so real on em

Class going bananas...I get it figured out on em

plus or minus this to the opposite of B on em

Divide the top all by 2-A on em

Time to start the class, bout to give this test on em

Yeah, Dub South we gonna show them how to do it

Do the Quad Solve it ain't really nothin to it

(Chorus)

11 questions

1. Write this down and work it out. Check with your neighbor. (00:01:26)

2. The opposite of the back divided by the front. Do you like this shortcut better than solving? Discuss. (00:01:42)

3. Remember! If a number divides everything, we factor it out. (00:01:49)

4. Write this stuff down! The title for this section is "Completing the Square" (00:02:45)

5. Factor x^2-8x 16 on your papers. Check with a neighbor. Then, write these steps down. Think about where the -3 comes from. Discuss as a class. How does it work with the problem you did at the start? (00:02:54)

6. Write it down! Title is "Quadratic Formula Example" (00:03:51)

7. Only the square root is changing. Why and how? Can you figure it out. I've left some hints on the board. (00:03:59)

8. Write it down! (00:04:06)

9. Why isn't the 6 divided? Something to do with PEMDAS perhaps? (00:04:08)

10. Write it down, check in (00:04:16)

11. Now, using oral response, work on memorizing the quadratic formula by chunking using the words and red commas on the board. (00:04:41)

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.

Absolutely amazing collaboration from year 10 today. 100% engagement and constant smiles from all #lovetsla #spiral

Students show better Interpersonal Writing skills than Speaking via @SpiralEducation Great #data #langchat folks!
