Prime & Composite Numbers Song

Jeremy skateboards, does parkour, and even magically elevates in this fun video about the definitions of prime, composite, and square numbers. Then his friend Jenny helps him out in each chorus to make the song catchy in a way that won't soon be forgotten!

Square, Prime & Composite Numbers Song Lyrics:

If the number makes a square
a square number is there
one, four, nine, sixteen, twenty-five...
can make arrays with four equal sides
thirty-six, forty-nine, sixty-four, eighty-one...
just to name the first few of them

A square number
The product of a whole number with itself
A prime number
evenly divisible by only one and itself
A composite number
evenly divisible by numbers other than just one and itself

When two factors are all you find
Then that number's got to be prime
they can be divided evenly
By one and itself exclusively
Like the numbers 2, 3, and 5
they can only make arrays with a one on the side

All composite numbers can be
Divided at least three ways evenly
The first composite number is 4
It’s divisible by three numbers or more
The next of these are 6 and 8
They have at least two ways to make arrays
