New Way To Teach Math – Using Rap Music. Meet Jake Scott-2 Pi [VIDEO]

I think this is fantastic, but maybe you don’t. Maybe you are a traditionalist when it comes to education.  Perhaps you feel that the only way to get kids’ attention is to entertain them.  Sorry, folks, but I love this guy.

His name is Jake Scott.  According to Yahoo trends, he teaches math at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Springs, Maryland.  I’m sure he, like many other teachers, finds it difficult to get students excited about the quadratic formula.  I remember the name, but I couldn’t tell you what it was right now to save my life.  Maybe if I had Mr. Scott, however, it would stick in my head.

Check this out.

2 Pi (love the name) writes the songs and even produces the videos from what I understand, and I’m sure that takes alot of time.

I don’t know if you agree with his teaching methods or not, but I’m going to stick to my guns here and say it’s a fantastic way to motivate kids (occasionally- I wouldn’t do it every day, mind you)

What do YOU think?

And PS – for those of you who think this is anything new, here’s a classic from my hero, parodist Tom Lehrer who was a Harvard college math professor turned novelty song writer from the 50′s and 60′s.    He rhymed the periodic table of elements!
