Best Math Song Ever

There are lots of great math songs — you can check out my top five six — but now there’s a new contender for the number one spot.

Blatantly stealing the tune from Barenaked Ladies’ A Word for That, writing a new set of geeky lyrics, and convincing Adam Sickler to strum and sing, Math Jokes 4 Mathy Folks is proud to announce the world premiere of (drum roll, please)…

A (Math) Word for That

For a little fun, you can try to guess the words referenced in the song before you watch the video. Here’s a PDF of the lyrics for A (Math) Word for That. If you’re too excited, though, just click the play button…

Enjoy! And if you find yourself singing, “I’d sound so smart if…” while sitting in class or a board meeting today, well, my apologies.
