Here are some tunes to hook into your transformation lessons, play as pupils enter the class! Can they name that tune? More importantly do they know these songs? Can they spot the mathematical link? Are there any more up to date songs that link in with this topic? I first heard this idea at the SSAT Achievement show in 2010, unfortunately I can not remember the lady speaker!

T: I can’t speak french!


E: Larger than life


R: You spin me right round


R: Man in the mirror


Hope you find this useful! I’d love to hear some more up to date hooks for transformations! Get in touch @numberloving and visit our NumberLoving store for free and premium resources
