A familiar song with a catchy beat reviews the basics of solving systems of equations using graphing, substitution, and elimination.Instructional note: I like to play math songs, raps, and videos as students enter the room to get them excited about exploring new concepts.  I also use them to increase engagement during review activities for assessments. Students who are not even on my roster hear the music as they walk down the hallway and say, "Man, I wish I was in that math class!"
