Cut Corner Calculus

As the wife of a mathematician, I am always on the look out for fun math songs. Stop laughing, math is fun. (and cool too, haven't you heard of the math prof rock star?)  This was on the radio today - apparently the band - the Saturday Knights - is playing at sxsw. "Count it Off" features the random quote-worthy lyrics "street mathematician scientists, learn that cut-corner calculus".

You can thank me later.




Oh yeah, and - happy spring!

  1. It *is* spring! that would explain why it's below 30 today.

    I will be practicing some cut corner calculus in Amsterdam now, thank you very much.

  2. Yes, and why it's SNOWING here!?

    As the wife of a scientist, we're always on the hunt for science humor, so I can relate.

  5. Don't know if you know this one.

    Sung to tune from snow white:

    Hi ho, Hi ho, off to Calculus(or work) we go,
    low d high less high d low
    square the bottom and away we go
    hi ho, hi ho

    You're familiar with this I presume.
