NC Standard Course of Study:

Common Core Anchor Standard R8: Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence. In our case, we explain the Scientific Method, and encourage students to use proper sources and evidence to overturn or validate hypotheses. Common Core Anchor Standard SL4: Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. In our song “Math is Everywhere,” the speaker/singer applies these principles to explain very simple through very complex mathematical concepts in an easy-to-digest manner. Common Core Math Standard 4.MD: Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit. We talk about the conversion of measurements in everyday situations like baking, telling time, and music (subdividing rhythm, etc.).

NC Essential Standards:

NC Essential Standard 3.P.1: Understand motion and factors that affect motion. NC Essential Standard 4.P.1: Explain how various forces affect the motion of an object. NC Essential Standard 5.P.1: Understand force, motion and the relationship between them. Our “Paper Airplane Samba” covers how thrust, drag, lift, and weight all affect an object’s ability to fly. NC Essential Standard 4.E.1: Explain the causes of day and night and phases of the moon. We explain that time – hours, minutes, seconds – are based on planetary motion, specifically, how long it takes the earth to rotate once. NC Essential Standard 4.E.2: Understand the use of fossils and changes in the surface of the earth as evidence of the history of Earth and its changing life forms. We explain which disciplines are used to learn about the earth’s ancient past – paleontology, archaeology, etc.
