**Macho Math**

*“Macho Man"*

By Christy Roitz

Refrain: Macho, Macho Math

I just want to do Macho Math

Macho, Macho Math

I just want to be Macho!

Powers with same bases that you need to multiply,

Use Power of Products Property, add exponents to get it right.

When you get those powers but you need to divide,

Just subtract exponents and you will do fine.

Negative Exponents are things math teachers hate,

Make exponents positive when you reciprocate.

The Zero Power Property fools almost everyone

Remember powers to a zero Always equals ONE!

Hey-Hey-Hey, Hey, Hey!

Refrain

I now have over twenty-one pages of songs that I have written for topics such as integer operations, properties, slope, quadratic equations, inequalities, formulas, etc. Former students often comment on how singing helped them to remember their math and made math fun. Beware...you may hear humming when students are working on homework in the classroom! Check out my Glog.
