## Can Your Child Spit Math Answers like they Spit Rap Song Bars?

Do your children know how to change from a decimal to percent or percent to decimal?

What about a decimal to a fraction or fraction to decimal?

Do they know the difference between a proper fraction, improper fraction or a mixed fraction?

Do they know decimal places? What lies on the left & right of a decimal? Do they know the left of a decimal represents whole/–& the right of a decimal represents part?

Do your children know signed numbers (Intro to Algebra)?

Do they know how many Degrees are in a Circle? What does half represent in a circle? What is the name of the line that runs straight through the center of a circle making 180 degrees on both sides? What is the name of that line?

Do they know another name for a Right Angle/how many Degrees does a Right angle represent?

Our children should be spitting the answers to these questions like they spit/recite whole rap songs, love songs, and any other songs they know from top to bottom, left and right, and every other kind of way.

We got to get on the grind of elevating our children’s minds/once they grow up/ain’t no rewind/without proper knowledge/how they gon ever get they self out a bind?/Knowledge is powerful/when applied/let’s be real folks/& get off pride/–we should be tired of being at the foot of civilization/we are a powerful people/when we unite & build/we ain never got to yield/dreams do come True/if we stay true to ourselves.
