Not Right For WatchKnowLearn
WatchKnowLearn ratings are intentionally harsher than what you might find on YouTube, for example. Most of our videos have been imported by people who want to use them with kids, not by the creators of the videos. We take a hard-nosed attitude toward quality. Four and five stars should be reserved for really excellent quality. Three stars isn't bad. Two is often watchable and shouldn't be ruled out.

  • 5 stars = Exemplary.
    Unusually helpful and well produced. Do not overuse this, please; it is not the standard rating for decent work, as it is elsewhere.
  • 4 stars = Very Good.
    Very helpful but not among the very best; adequately produced, at least.
  • 3 stars = Usable.
    Reasonably helpful, perhaps a bit amateurish in production or has some other problem; there is nothing wrong with a 3-star rating for amateur work!
  • 2 stars = Some Merit.
    Minimally helpful; not completely worthless or inappropriate; you can see how it might be useful to some people.
  • 1 star = Not Right for WatchKnowLearn.
    Not at all helpful, not educational, poorest quality, etc.; you can't see it being useful to anyone.

From YouTube (Approved: begamatt), produced by Rhythm Rhyme Results
This rap is from Rhythm Rhyme Results.  It is audio only, lyrics and images are NOT included on the screen.  (02:52)

This song teaches the elements needed to graph functions, including the quadrants on a coordinate plane, the equation of a line, and how to find the slope and intercept of a line. "Rise Up (Run Out)" then includes a real-life example explaining how to solve problems using a graph and the cartesian coordinate system. The teaching materials at the bottom of the page, including lesson plans, worksheets, activities, and games help teachers and homeschool parents generate teaching ideas for the song topic. Students will have a greater understanding of graphs and will be more effective at graphing linear equations.

Lyrics include:
Rise up, run out, we’re mappin’ graphs to the RRR sound
We’re talkin’ points and slopes, axes and origins
y-intercepts, and quadrants, all four of them

Verse I
The four quadrants start from the top right
Counter-clockwise from the positive x and y
You go around, hit the II and then III
Bottom left, negative, remember that please
Now if you’ve got a single point on the x-y grid
There’s a single pair of values telling you where it is
The x coordinate goes side to side
The y follows the comma to define the point’s height

A straight line between two points is a relation
You can represent it with a linear equation
y = m times x + b
If you wanna know the variables listen to me
m is the slope, that’s rise over run
It tells you how steep the line is gonna become
b is the intercept, that’s how you assess
The point at which the line goes through the y-axis


Verse II
Let’s say you’ve got a job and you’re earning your pay
You start with 50 bucks and get 9 every day
If you wanna know over a year how much you’ll get
Calculating that graph might be your best bet
On the x, you’re measuring one day at a time
And your money gets tracked on the vertical y
Now you got some, and you haven’t even worked yet
50 bucks, put it up, that’s your y-intercept

After day one you got 59
Now you got two points, you can start drawing a line
The slope of that line, remember rise over run
It’s dollars over days and you got 9∕1
Remember b, I think that’s where we started at
50 dollars up on your graph, the y-intercept
And you know y = mx + b
So now you got y = 9x + 50
