Product Description
The student will be able to write the set of rules for an algorithm or a mathematical process by changing the lyrics of a popular song and singing it using the melody for that song. In the classroom we call this competition Math Idol based on the reality television singing competition "American Idol" created by Simon Fuller.

The topics available for the songs have to be chosen from the curriculum covered by the Common Core Standards. The timing for this project is recommended for the last few weeks of school; the duration of the project is approximately 5-8 school days.

One of the best ways to remember mathematical rules is to write lyrics and put them to music. To create their song students will be asked to think of a familiar song that is easy to hum. Original songs are encouraged but not required.

When the writing work is completed, the students will perform in a singing competition. The student may choose to complete this project individually or in groups of 2-4 students.
