How To Use It
A 2005 Parents' Choice Recommended Award Winner. The MULTIPLICATION music CD from Teacher and the Rockbots makes learning basic multiplication tables a cool thing to do with its combination of modern rock and a funny cast of characters. These characters incorporate funny stories into their lessons so that repeated listening is never boring. These math songs also integrate life skills into the lyrics. For example, "Eight Hours A Day" is about working full-time and getting paid with a sub-text about honesty in the workplace.
To enhance each song, free activities in the form of worksheets, lyrics, quizzes and online games have been created. You can use them to introduce, test and/or reinforce subject along with each song.

"My favorite song is 'Multiply by 2' because my daughter had trouble learning her math facts and this song introduced she and I to a whole new way of learning math." - Terisa
"I play the CD, Multiplication, for 3 learning disabled 3rd graders. They love the music and I find that they remember the words to the songs, when I know they couldn't repeat a word that I said to them! I encourage them to use their journals to write the equations in as the song is being played. Sometimes it is a bit too fast for them, but the challenge keeps them interested." - Carol
"We use rhythm sticks to keep the beat and move in formation to the music. We are very active and involved!" - Karen
"I just wanted to tell you how much my 3rd grade students and I love Teacher and the Rockbots. I had students asking for itunes gift cards so they could download songs for their birthdays. I have listened to many, many teacher CD\'s and this is by far the best ones out there." - Jenny
