This is helpful for students that struggle with mathematical rules. A talented teacher knows that students need to have all aspects of learning covered. Simply reading and practicing math does not always connect the dots for people who struggle with math. Music is often easier to identify and by learning the words to these familiar songs math rules become fun and memorization happens naturally. It is also very interesting to see how math connects with music and when you learn the song you will certainly find out something you did not know!
