Mr. Michael Keegan, Math Teacher

The song should be longer ... but does anyone really need more of it? The trend is the ''mini lesson'' now, right?

And here are the lyrics, just so they'll be searchable:

Twelve more than two times x gives you eighteen
Doesn't take a lot of work to see
If you use some inverse operations
Then you can solve for x, and it is three.

You subtracted twelve from both sides
And the eighteen became six.
Then don't forget to do division
And you've figured out the work in a few ticks.

When you want to check your answer
(And you know you must do checks!)
You must order operations
After substituting numbers in for x!

Twelve more than two times x gives you eighteen
Doesn't take a lot of work to see
If you use some inverse operations
Then you can solve for x, and it is three.

Merry Christmath!
