1. Welcome to the Math Dance! 1st solve this EASY fraction problem! It SOUNDS easier than you think! 1/5 + 1/7 = A. 2/35 B.2/12 C.12/35 Click me! Click the speaker For a musical way to solve the answer!

2. Page 1 Rock’n Time! Welcome to the Math Dance! It’s music to put you in the MODE. Not just your AVERAGEMath Dance. With a RANGE of diverse artists and songs. Do you know what IMEAN? The Tasks Task#1 Process Task #2 Process Task#3 Process Evaluation . Let’s rock! Math Dance The MEANMath Dance. Not just your AVERAGEMath Dance. It’s music to put you in the MODE. With a RANGE of diverse artists and songs. Math Dance Introduction Chaperones are Gary Hank, Scott Yerger, ,and Becky Suydam Let’s rock!

3. Page 2 The Tasks Task #1: You are a DJ that must create 1 hour worth of music for a Math Dance. You will keep a running time of your songs. Task #2: You will find the measures of central tendencies of your data. In simple terms, the mean, median, mode, and range of your data. Task #3 You will present your findings through an oral presentation to the class. Explaining the math correlations. Brief biography of Artists. Distribute a hard copy of the completed DJ itinerary worksheet JUST FOR FUN!! Change the lyrics to a song of choice that will have a correlation to a math concept. Let’s Rock!

4. Page 3 Task #1 Process You are the DJ. (hardcopy printout) *Your task is to create 1 hour of music for the Math Dance. *On the spreadsheet provided on the next page, list the song titles, artists, year recorded, genres, and time of each song. *Each song must have a correlation to mathematics, either in the title or the artist. (Check out myexamples) *No song may be over 7 minutes long. *You may not use more than 2 songs from each artist. * You must keep a running time of the songs. Example *To find help with locating songs, click here. http://www.allmusic.com/ Here is another option. Click here.http://www.billboard.com/ Do you have iTunes, use it! Great for artist information

5. Page 4 Task #3 • You will present your findings through an oral presentation to the class. • 4-5 minutes • Explaining the math correlations. • Brief biography of Artists. • Distribute a hard copy of the completed DJ itenerary worksheet (send Attachment) • Presentation through the use of Smartboard technology

8. Page 7 Task #2 Process OK, now I have to get MEAN! (and median, mode, and range) Now that the music for the dance is complete, find themean, mode, median, and range for the years. Do the same steps for the times. Example Dr.Ufigure Don't know what these blue words mean? No problem, just click here! Dr. Ufigure will help you step by step. Go to Tasks Go to Task #1 process Go to examples Go to worksheet #1

9. Page 8 Worksheet #2 Measures of Central Tendencies Did you follow Dr. Ufigure’s directions? OK, Let’s start with the years of your songs. Did you have any from the 60’s? What, No Beatles? That’s ok. Use the space provided to list the years. Remember 1st to last. The Median of the years is_________________. The Mode of the years is_______________. The Mean of the years is _______________. The Range of the years are __________________. Lets; do the same for the times. List the times short to long. Do you have to change them to seconds? The Median of the time is_________________. The Mode of the time is_______________. The Mean of the time is _______________. The Range of the time are __________________.

10. Page 9 JUST FOR FUN!!!!! Want to create a new Math song? Think of one of your favorite songs. Think of the lyrics to the song. Change the lyrics so the song is now an official Math song. Here is a nice site for lyrics. www.lyrics.com Click here for the original lyrics of the song. Original song 8675309/Jenny, Jenny Recorded by Tommy Tutone 1981 Click here for the NEW MATH LYRICS!!!

11. Page 10 Hey! Jenny Jenny, who can I turn to? You give me something I can hold on to I know you think I like the others before We your name and number on the wall Jenny, I got your number I need to make you mine Jenny, don't change your number 8675309 (8675309) 8675309 (8675309) Jenny Jenny, your only girl for me You don't know me, but you make me so happy I tried to call you before But I lost mind I tried my imagination, But I was disturbed I got it (I got it) I got it I got your number on the wall I got it (I got it) I got it For a good time For a good time call (Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to?
