Math Songs:Fractions

Add and Subtract Fractions Song

(Sung to the tune of the Black Eyed Peas’ “I’ve Gotta Feeling”)

Chorus:

I’ve gotta feeling
That the fractions will be all right
That this class is gonna be all right
That we’ll all understand fractions

Feeling (oooh oooh)
That the fractions will be all right
That this class is gonna be all right
That we’ll all understand fractions

Take ½ and ½ (echo)
Lets add this up (echo)
I’ve got my problem (echo)
Lets add it up! (echo)
Numerators are parts
Denominator- whole
Lets think about it! Let’s think; think now!

I know that we’ll have a ball
We CAN change the PARTS
We CANT change the WHOLES
That’s the reason we add only across
Cuz the numbers on top are the same size pieces of the whole!!

CH-CH-CHA
1 plus 1 equals 2
We add the tops
And then move down
Let’s see their the same
And then move over!
Put it together!!
And then we’ll do it again!!

Do it! Let’s Do it! Do it!

We add the tops
And then move down
Let’s see their the same
And then move over!
Put it together!!

Do it!

Modified Chorus:
Cuz I’ve gotta feeling (whoo- ooh)
That the fractions will be all right
That the class is gonna be all right
That we’ll all understand fractions
Feeling Ooooh Whoooo
That the fractions will be all right
That the class is gonna be all right
That we’ll all understand fractions

Add the tops!
And then move down!
Let’s see they’re the same!
And then move over!
Put it together!!

We add the tops
And then move down
Let’s see their the same
And then move over!
Put it together!!

We’ll shut it down!
Burn the roof.
And then we’ll do it again!
Do it! Let’s do it! Let’s do it!
Do it! And Do it! And Do it!
Let’s live it up!
Do it! And Do it! And Do it!

Now we’ll SUBTRACT!
Subtract the tops
And then move down
Let’s see their the same
And then move over!
Put it together!!

Arrrround the clock (clock, clock, clock)
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, to Sunday
We get with it get with it every day
You know what I say
“Understand fractions!”

Chorus:

Feeling (oooh oooh)
That the fractions will be alright
That this class is gonna be alright
That we’ll all understand fractions

Feeling (oooh oooh)
That the fractions will be alright
That this class is gonna be alright
That we’ll all understand fractions
