I got such a positive response from posting "Rudolph the Statistician" that I will risk
being annoying to post three more.
I didn't compose any of these... nor do I know the original source.
If anyone can identify the source, please let me know.

-Happy Holiday Season to all.

MATH CHRISTMAS SONGS...

_________________________
JINGLE ALGEBRA
(Tune "Jingle Bells")

Dashing through my text,
It's really not complex.
But if my mind runs slow
It gives me lots of woe,
Oh, Oh, Oh!

I study Algebra
My brain runs; I say "Go!"
So much I do not know
And so very far to go. Yo!

Properties, Quantities
Factor into play;
Points to plot,
I think a lot
Success should come my way!

Rantional 'n Radical
Equations have a say.
Slopes and line,
I'll make the time;
Math Power's here to stay! Yea!
==================================

ON THE FIRST DAY OF MATH CLASS
(Tune: On the First Day of Christmas.")

On the first day of math class
My teacher said to me,
"The assignment is on page three."

On the second day of math class
My teacher said to me,
"Get extra help! The assignment is on page three."

On the third day of math class
My teacher said to me,
"Are there any questions? Get extra help! The assignment is on page three."

On the fourth day of math class
My teacher said to me,
"We'll have a test on Friday. Are there any questions? Get extra help! The assignment is
on page three."

On the fifth day of math class
My teacher said to me,
"Please study hard. We'll have a test on Friday. Are there any questions? Get extra
help! The assignment is on page three."

On the sixth day of math class
My teacher said to me,
"May you gain MATH POWER. Please study hard. We'll have a test on Friday. Are there any
questions? Get extra help! The assignment is on page three."

================================

OH NUMBER PI
(TUNE: "Oh Christmas Tree")

Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
Your digits are nonending,
Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
No pattern are you sending.
You're three point one four one five nine,
And even more if we had time,
Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
For circle lengths unbending.

Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
You are a number very sweet,
Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
Your uses are so very neat.
There's 2 Pi r and Pi r squared,
A half a circle and you're there,
Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
We know that Pi's a tasty treat.

==============================
RUDOLPH THE STATISTICIAN
(Tune: "Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer")


Rudolph, the statistician
Sampled data everywhere.
Mean heights and heart conditions
Calculated with great care.

All of his population
Gathered from coast to coast
Sought out his information;
He would always give the most.

Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say,
"Rudolph, with your pencil write,
What gifts I should take tonight."

Quickly he polled the children,
Then Rudolph shouted out with glee:
"Stats did provide the answer:
Give Nintendo and Barbie!"
