Hello and Happy New Year! I posted this on YouTube months ago, but in case you missed it here's our factoring based parody of Uptown Funk! Also, keep an out on my blog. I make no promises, but I may make a few blog posts this year!

Lyrics:

Gon’ factor, gon’ factor, factor

Gon’ factor, gon’ factor, factor

Gon’ factor, gon’ factor

Let’s start this lesson

Learn to factor expressions

This one for those students

The blueprints for mastery

Sittin', Gettin’ a factoring education.

Take a sum or a difference

and make it a multiplication

When you see (x squared)

Without a number in front of it

plus bx (b x)

Standard form for a quad-rat-ic

then plus c (constant)

that’s x squared plus b x plus c

Standard form (aw yeah)

factor that tri-no-mial

break it down.

x squared plus bx plus c

x squared plus bx plus c

x squared plus bx plus c

Now I’m gon’ factor this expression

Now I’m gon’ factor this expression

Now I’m gon’ factor this expression

Parentheses, x’s and fill in the spots

Multiply and Add up (come on)

Multiply and Add up uh

Multiply and Add up

Multiply and Add up

Multiply and Add up

Multiply and Add up

Hey, hey, hey, oh

Stop, wait a minute

See those spots? Put those numbers in em

Write the signs, then you check

Ms McCool, Bring it back

Write parentheses, x’s

find the pair of factors

multiply to c, and add to b

That’s a skill that you can all master

When you see (x squared)

Without a number in front of it

plus bx (b x)

Standard form for a quad-rat-ic

then plus c (constant)

that’s x squared plus b x plus c

Standard form (aw yeah). Other video?

factor that tri-no-mial

break it down

x squared plus bx plus c

x squared plus bx plus c

x squared plus bx plus c

Now I’m gon’ factor this expression

Now I’m gon’ factor this expression

Now I’m gon’ factor this expression

Parentheses, x’s and fill in the spots

Multiply and Add up (come on)

Multiply and Add up uh

Multiply and Add up uh

Multiply and Add up uh

Multiply and Add up

Multiply and Add up

Hey, hey, hey, oh

Before we leave

What if there’s a number with x squared?

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up uh

I said Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Take ‘a’ then slide it

to 'c’ and then multiply em

Find the factors then divide em

by a, reduce on both sides and

Bring the bottoms up beside x

When you factor let this guide ya:

Parentheses, xs and fill in the spots

Multiply and Add up come on!

Multiply and Add up uh

Multiply and Add up uh

Multiply and Add up uh

Multiply and Add up

Multiply and Add up

Hey, hey, hey, oh

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up (say what?)

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up (say what?)

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up (say what?)

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up (say what?)

Slide, Divide, Bottoms up

This is the coolest mathematics video I have ever seen. This also remind me of those quadratic formula songs where it stuck in student's head forever. I really like the creativity in this video and helping students to understand more about factoring.
