Adam Up are Back!

In 2014ish, when working at the same school, James and Sam began creating maths songs with the students. Their first song, ‘Multiply by 2 and 4’, was an instant ‘hit’ and was sung around the school corridors, on the bus home and at home itself. This was followed up by the world famous ‘Perimeter’ song which rakes in regular views on Youtube to this day. Parents of the students would comment on how their dinner times had been ruined due to the constant singing of the catchy, albeit slightly irritating, tunes. After several years of writing songs and making animated videos of the highest quality, James and Sam took a break to pursue family raising (separately) but are now expanding the Adam Up universe once more. As well as songs, there are posters, tutorial videos, games, memory aids, vocabulary mats and more!

Not only have the fellas updated their site and added new videos they also have new resources, well worth taking a look at.

## Times Table Duel.

The boys from Adam Up have been busy again with this clash of their multiplication characters.

## Area and Perimeter.

## Times Table Songs:

Plus the outtakes, had to include these...genius.

## Multiply by 10 and 100

Adam up suggest doing these funky actions while listening to the songs:

1, Jump 1 place to the left.

2, Cross your forearms (like the X Factor) to make the multiplication sign.

3, Hold up '10' fingers when you sing '10'.

4, Make 2 circles with your index fingers and thumbs whilst sticking your remaining left hand fingers up when you sing '100'

5, Jump 1 place again...and repeat.

## Partitioning.

## Counting On - Subtraction

All you got to do is count on !!! This video shows that if numbers are close together when subtracting..then just count on..very simple but very effective.

## Percentages

I think this one may need editing very soon as it mentions Villa as a Premiership team. Other than that another simple but catchy number..making light work of explaining percentages.

## Number Bonds to 10.

Poor old Adam is having problems with his spaceship and the only way he can get away is by using number bonds to 10. Play through a couple of times then ask children to write down as many number bonds as they can, using their whiteboards or jotters.

## Quadrilaterals.

Bit of a reggae feel to this song. Features coconuts falling on to various shapes and. changing them. run through the clip and ask your children to memorise the shapes and their properties.

Video can also be paused at various points and children can be tested using whiteboards or jotters.

## Polygon Song.

Very ballady (is that even a word) this little number about polygons. To make it more interactive children could hold up their fingers to show how many sides are on each shape.
