Numberock - Math Music Videos for Kids

Last month I shared ten good YouTube channels for math students. This week I learned about about another good math video channel. Numberock is a YouTube channel that features quick music videos that teach and or reinforce elementary school math lessons. The videos were developed by an elementary teacher for elementary students. Take a look at some of the videos as embedded below.

Applications for Education
When I was in the fourth and fifth grades my teachers would play records of people singing multiplication tables. They would play those records while were coming in from recess or coming into school start the day. I thought the records were annoying, but to this day I still hear those multiplication tables being sung to us. Music videos like Numberock won't replace a lesson, but they could certainly help reinforce a lesson.
