Matharena

Lyrics and Performance by Vicki Young
Melody: "Macarena"

Math is FUN so donít be resistant,

Just learn the rules, the rules are consistent.

And most important, you must be persistent!

Do the matharena!

 

Donít give up when you work with fractions.

Look at the problem and decide on your action.

With the right answer, youíll feel the satisfaction.

Do the matharena!

 

Multiplying fractions, you can cancel if you factor,

As long as factors match thatís what youíre after.

The leftover factors must show up in your answer!

Do the matharena!

 

When youíre dividing, invert the second fraction.

Go to verse three and work without distraction.

If every factor cancels, the answer "1" requires no action.

Do the matharena!

 

Adding fractions, get common denominators.

Multiply by missing factors to get the numerators.

Add numerators only, NOT denominators.

Do the matharena!
