Product Description
This is a song about calculating volume and surface area to the tune of "All About that Bass" by Meghan Trainor. My students and I sing this during our volume and surface area unit in geometry class. I also use it as a call and response when students get stuck and don't know what to do. My students have said it helps them remember on quizzes and tests. Music makes memory!

Here is the main chorus:

Because you know it’s all about that base
'Bout that base, times height
It’s all about that base
'Bout that base, times height
It’s all about that base
'Bout that base, times height
It’s all about that base
'Bout that base

To use in your classroom, just search on YouTube for an instrumental version of "All About that Bass" by Meghan Trainor. Print copies of the song lyrics for students to read (I use a half sheet). Then hit “play” and just sing along to the instrumental version. You don't have to be good at it, as long as you are confident and the students see you having fun, they will catch on and start singing, too. Sometimes it helps to play a short clip of the original song to remind student how the tune goes before introducing the math version.

Have fun!
