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?
