Using Math + Rap to = Fun, Motivating, Engaging & Meaningful Learning Experiences


Just wanted to share this video that won the April ISTE Digital Storytelling prize.  This video is created by Matt Hildahl (and his students) who is a high school math teacher at the East Valley School District in Spokane, Washington.

Mr. Hildahl goes by the name, 2 Bitty, because he claims to be half as good as 50 Cent. I don't know, never have I seen students having as much fun reciting the Pythagorean Theorem.

I couldn't find any more of 2 Bitty's work.  Do you know of some?  Do you have some examples of using music (or rap) in math class?

  1. His videos should definitely be put on www.teachertube.com if they are not there already. On that site, there are several videos of teachers combining different styles of music to there classroom in the same way Mr. Hildahl does.
