Angle Mon lyrics by Ms. Ben-Nissan’s class
May be sung to the tune of the theme from Pokemon by Seigler and Loeffler
There are three angles we can see
The small ones are acute
Each right angle’s 90 degrees
The large ones are obtuse
I will measure every one
Determine the degrees
Each line or segment intersection
My protractor and me
Angle mon! Come on, measure them all with me
A mathematical destiny
Angle mon! Oh, there are three kinds
Of angles we will find
Angle mon! Acute, obtuse and right [make angles with arms here]
Gonna measure them day or night
They’re in every polygon
Every time two rays or lines
Or segments intersect
There are three angles, you will find
There are three kinds, I checked!
Ninety degrees, as in a square,
Is the only kind that’s right
Acute is less, obtuse is more
So measure them, alright?
Gonna measure them all,
C’mon, measure them all
This song came from a GriffinEd songwriting residency at Haskell Elementary School in Granada Hills, California where Ms. Ben-Nissan's class was learning how to measure and classify angles.
The residency was generously supported by the Interfilk Foundation. Thanks, all you filkers!
The academic standard addressed here is:
Common Core Math 4.G.1. Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines; identify these in two-dimensional figures.
