“I’m so crazy with my circular measurements / Pi times diameter gives me the circumference.”
People are going crazy over this video of a seventh grade math class from New Orleans performing a remix to Beyonce’s “Formation.”
In the extremely unlikely event you haven't seen the video — or if you're looking for an excuse to watch it for the nine trillionth time — it's here.
The lyrics, composed by their ReNEW Cultural Arts Academy teacher, Ciera Paul, incorporate various mathematical terms and formulas, like how to calculate the circumference and radius of a circle.
One verse is: “I’m crazy with my circular measurements / Pi times diameter gives me the circumference.”
The song also reviews the terms for angle measurements. Part of the chorus is: “Complimentary is 90 degree angles / Supplementary equals 1-8-0. »
And of course, Paul had to sprinkle in some Bey-certified flyness: “I bring A’s home in my bag / Swag,” the students sing.
