A list of maths songs

August 15, 2011

A useful list of maths songs provided by Colleen Young. Many students learn through music. Witness the number of adults who easily sing the ABC song with their own children.  How is it that for most people music is a powerful part of their personal life and yet when we go to work or school we turn it off? The intentional use of music in the classroom will set the scene and learning atmosphere to enhance our teaching and learning activities. Plus, using music for learning makes the process much more fun and interesting! Maths facts can also be more easily remembered through the use of music.  When information is put to rhythm and rhyme these musical elements will provide a hook for recall.  Music, one of the joys of life, can be one of the joys of learning as well.
