2011 PERFORMANCES
   
   

I'm from math

By grade 3/4 students.

I'm from math
yes, I'm from math
I'm from math
and so are you

I'm from making equations
and unusual T-charts
feeling really smart
like a crazy math genius

Finding number pairs
that make sums of 10
plotting them on a grid
in a line pattern

I'm from making graphs
that point in new directions
feeling confused at first
then feeling confident

I'm from ordered pairs
and how fun math can be
different ways to see
the same number pair pattern

I'm from math
yes, I'm from math
I'm from math
and so are you

I'm from number pairs
that make less than 10
organizing them in columns
seeing neat patterns

0, 0, 0, 1
0, 2 up to 0, 9
then start again
with a new column

I'm from patterns
10, 9, 8 and 7
all the way to 1
that make 55 in all

But with negative numbers
and fractions on a grid
I can make lots more
like a fascinated kid

I'm from math
yes, I'm from math
I'm from math
and so are you

I'm from math
yes, I'm from math
I'm from math
and so are you
