In this motivational rap music video, a familiar song with a catchy beat reviews the basics of slope-intercept form and graphing.  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!"

Reviewer Comments:

I am not if the part in the video where the teacher kind of grabs the student's arm and brings her to the graphing board should be included in this video. Otherwise, it looks like it would be highly motivational for students while entering the math classroom before the start of that day's lesson.
