### Description

This is a song about circles to the tune of “My House” by Flo Rida. My students and I sing this during our circles unit in geometry class. It includes the vocabulary and relationships of lines that go through circles, as well as area, circumference, arc length, sector area, and equations of circles. I also use it as a call and response when students get stuck and don’t know what to do. My students have said it helps them remember on quizzes and tests. Music makes memory!

Here is the main chorus:

Circles – they go round

Tangent lines cross one point

Secants can go through it

Chords don’t have to go out

Circles – they go round

Radius is half way

Diameter hits the center

But they don’t have to go out

Circles – they go round

Circles – they go round

To use in your classroom, just search on YouTube for an instrumental version of “My House” by Flo Rida. Print copies of the song lyrics for students to read (I use a half sheet). Then hit “play” and just sing along to the instrumental version. You don’t have to be good at it, as long as you are confident and the students see you having fun, they will catch on and start singing, too.

CCSS7.G.B.4

Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems; give an informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle.

CCSSHSG-C.A.2

Identify and describe relationships among inscribed angles, radii, and chords.

CCSSHSG-C.A.3

Construct the inscribed and circumscribed circles of a triangle, and prove properties of angles for a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle.

CCSSHSG-C.B.5

Derive using similarity the fact that the length of the arc intercepted by an angle is proportional to the radius, and define the radian measure of the angle as the constant of proportionality; derive the formula for the area of a sector.
