The math rap will get stuck in your head: "Fractions, fractions, lights camera action." And your students will laugh as they learn from Mr. Duey, the rapping math teacher from Michigan who's posted his lesson to the video-sharing site TeacherTube.com.
Daniel Joseph Duey is now in his second year of full-time teaching at Adams Middle School, in Westland, Michigan. In the past year and a half, his video Fractions (below) has been shown in math classes throughout the country. And teachers on TeacherTube say they've used the video to introduce a lesson, engage inner-city students who prefer music to math, and show students how to calculate their grades on an assignment.
