Music and Poetry Study Aid

geometry_illustration_pg19MathOdes® is a fun and creative math teaching and study aid designed to help students remember math concepts and formulas in the form of poetry and music. Each “ode” details a particular math concept such as surface area, quadratic equations, and matrix operations. The music is high quality and produced with both male and female vocals in a wide variety of music styles attractive to middle and high school ages.

Each ode is quite thorough and details concepts as well as formulas. For example, in the ode, “Quadratic Equations”, the quadratic formula is present as well as other methods for solving quadratic equations including taking the square root, factoring, completing the square, and graphing. For this reason, many of the songs can be lengthy which allows flexibility for teachers and students to use part or all of a song during a learning period. The rhyming format will help students recall the information easily.

Each of the products can be used together or separately. For example, a music CD can be playing while a student is following along in the color illustration companion book providing both audio and visual displays. Or a teacher or student can just use the products separately. The illustrated books contain the lyrics (poems) to the music with color illustrations following. The DVD’s provide the music as well as the visual lyrics in time with the music for each song which can be projected in a classroom session or used on an individual computing device or TV for a fun and effective learning experience!
