Math, Music, Hope, Drunk Driving, and More…

There are several counting songs published in contemporary America  for young children to learn number counting, in particular,  from one to ten. I have spent some time studying it! Today I have redone it and share the rephrased version to fit my themes of math, hope, poetry, and  natural and healthy living in this blog.  I hope that you enjoy it.

Singing-along this song is a good way to renew your energy, ponder about the funny side of math, and reduce road rages caused by drunk driving!

Counting Poetry (Part I):

1 2 3 4 5, you deserve to live a healthy life,

6 7 8 9 10, let your love erase all the pain.

Why do you always have hope?

Because YEAH is better than NOPE.

Why do you want to help me?

You will figure it out someday!

1 2 3 4 5, let’s learn how to survive,

6 7 8 9 10, keep going and you can win!

I am wondering how do you know?

Because it is true, I can tell!

Do I need to pay a fee?

Nope, that you learn your lessons is the key!

1 2 3 4 5, if drunk, don’t drive,

6 7 8 9 10, these are tips to follow, laws to learn!

Why are you mentioning this though?

Because it is important for you to know!

How does it make sense to me?

Since safety first, it is supposed to be!

(Stay Tuned,  Part II to be continued….)

I find this link is very helpful for advanced students, such as high school students or college freshman, to fine tune their skills in solving some mathematical problems.

also this link has fine third grade math problems to solve:

Count from one to ten, once again!

Let the magic show in numbers begin!

Math Is Cool, How About You?

I Remember when I was in second grade, my class went to market place of the town with everyone carrying a small abacus,  we were given unit price and the number of items assuming to buy, then each student was asked to calculate the total prices for each item, using multiplication method with our abacuses, I was the fasted to arrive a conclusion with correct answers most of the them. the math teacher was very impressed, and that made me smiling all the way back home.

As the subject becomes harder, I started to like some other subjects such as Transitional Proses,  Poetry, English, and Chemistry.  Chemistry is my strongest subject in High School because I found myself very good at solving chemistry problems during big tests. In general, students are given certain clues and required to figure out the substance implied in the problems. It is like finding solutions to riddles, I always wrote out all the give data on my papers and use logic and math skills to get a my answer. Mathematical thinking skills played a big role in my ability to excel in Chemistry, only those who have good patience, fast computing ability, and flexible analytic skills could stand out,  I am grateful to my early experiences and trainings in math.

Not being confident enough to major in math, and not really being  interested in becoming a professional in Chemistry,  I finished my college with a degree in Materials Management Engineering and got a job in power management company.

After coming to the U. S. A.,  I got a degree in Elementary Education  and in Pure Mathematics, and learned various math teaching and learning strategies. I realize that teaching mathematics is what I have always enjoyed in the past years, and it will be something I plan to continue doing  rest of my life.

Many people don’t enjoy this subject, they believe that they have No talent in it, which is not true. Math is learn-able and could be very fulfilling once you get it! I love math the way it is! There are creative ways to help students at all grade levels to master the concepts.

About five years ago, when I started to teach college freshmen Pre-Calculus, a little verse jumped into my mind,  and I have written it  down on board for my students, most of them liked it. and now I share it here,  you may replace math to anything you like most.

Math is cool,

If you know the rule;

Math is fun,

If you are its fan;

Math is tough,

If you don’t study hard enough,

Math is cool,

How about you?
