Math Rocks! is an innovative program that utilizes the music of well-known rock songs and adds original lyrics to present and explain math concepts, from basic counting to algebra.
PowerPoint slide shows enhance the performance by providing illustrations and visual reinforcement of the concepts. The musical elements of melody and rhythm, as well as word patterns and rhyme in song lyrics, aid in retention of the topics.
Math Rocks! not only exposes students to a live performance of a distinctly American musical form, but engages them in learning through active problem-solving, singing and rhythmic accompaniment.
