The Math and Science Show NEW!
Who Says Math and Science Can’t Be Fun?
Leave it to the Hill Brothers to come up with a whole new approach to getting kids excited about learning!
This brand-new celebration is just in time, with new songs and activities focusing on the relationship of math and science in our daily lives (“what does it have to do with me?”), math and science as a pathway to achievement (your students will love the “Inventors Rock” boogie), fun-filled adventures through mathematical functions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc.), and the importance of learning your facts cold (it makes everything else easier …. duh!).
